Show Us the Father (John 14:7-14)

In this lesson we take a deep look at the relationship of the Father and the Son, addressing misunderstandings and providing analogies used by the early Church to help us understand the mystery of the trinity.  We also consider what Jesus might have meant when He promises we will do greater works than Him, a statement that should challenge the fruit of our lives. Finally, we consider what Jesus means (and does not mean) when He says “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

Developing a Strong Devotional Life (by David Bercot, PA Retreat)

One of the secrets of the Kingdom life is to work diligently on our hearts and inner life. During this talk at our retreat in Pennsylvania, David Bercot makes the case that a strong devotional life is the key to living a strong Kingdom life. With humor and candor, David shares lessons from his own prayer and devotional life, giving many practicals to help us develop our inner lives as individuals and families.   

See this attached list of devotional classics referred to in this lesson to supplement your devotional times with God.

The Spiritual War

If you feel like you are under spiritual assault, maybe it is because you are. In this practical lesson we pull back the curtain on the unseen spiritual battle for our souls, being waged by the forces of evil. Coming out of Ephesians chapter 6, we look at the spiritual war: the forces of evil arrayed against us, the protective armor God has given us, and the offensive weapons at our disposal.
