David, the greatest king in Israel’s history was described as a man after God’s own heartWhat in the world does "to be a man after God's own heart" mean and what can we learn from it?In today’s lesson, we’ll take an in-depth look at that statement and be challenged on how our hearts can be ones that please God. We'll also look at David's life and how from great actions for God to great sins, he always returned to God.We'll see no matter how much we feel we may have failed, that God never fails in his love and mercy to us.  Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/message Become a supporter of this podcast:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support
 What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus 24/7? •Is it just following the rules? In a previous study we looked at where Jesus told his disciples that they can show they loved him by keeping his commands •But we know You can outwardly keep whatever the socially accepted commandments are •And still be a rotten person, a long way from being described as a disciple of Jesus•And though we don’t usually think of Psalms as a book on discipleship, we’ll find it has a lot to teach us in this podcastFor notes from the podcast, go to www.bible805.com Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/message Become a supporter of this podcast:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support
How does it happen for a person to start out with every advantage—good looks, honor and a calling from God, a great family, but then die a self-pitying suicide? Saul, the first king of Israel, sadly answers that question in our lesson as we start the great adventure of studying the kings of Israel. This week is a challenge and warning, but after this lesson on what not to do by looking at the life of Saul we will then study the life of David and Psalms and learn what it means to be a person after God’s heart.For notes and more information on reading through the Bible, go to www.bible805.com.

This is from the much longer, Rule of St. Benedict, a manual of guidance for a monastery, written in the early 500s AD. Though written a long time ago, the rules are a timeless challenge for those wanting to live a godly life. This podcast is just a short one with me reading his words to you.Benedict's rules are kind and obviously intended for a community of people he wanted to live in such a way as to express the love of God to each other and to their world. For the podcast that talks about this material, go to: How to love Jesus, part 2—growing, pruning, being fruitful, trusting Jesus for now and forever https://wp.me/pazrJD-6N Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/message Become a supporter of this podcast:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support

 When you think of the time Jesus had with his disciples just before his trial and crucifixion, what is it you think about?To answer my question, I know I think about the Last Supper—that’s what has been memorialized in great art throughout the centuries and in the services before Easter and that’s often our focus on Maundy Thursday or Good Friday services.Though the Last supper is extremely important that was only one part of the teaching and time Jesus had with his disciples and in this part 2 of our special Easter lessons we’ll look the passage in John 13-17 that fills in what happened after that meal until the time Jesus was arrested. This podcast will be heavy on application because in our previous special Easter lesson we learned that the primary way to love Jesus is to OBEY HIS COMMANDS. It isn't just knowing about them that pleases him, but obeying them.In this podcast I'll talk about ways to love Jesus by trusting him to prune our lives to make us more fruitful in both our personal lives and in how we impact the world for him. There are additional materials on the website: www.Bible805.com that I refer to in the lesson and I hope you'll check them out and sign up for the newsletter while you're there.  Send in a voice message:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/message Become a supporter of this podcast:https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support
 In both the Old and New Testaments, (Deut. 6:5 and Luke 10:27) we are told the greatest commandment is to "Love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength."But what does that mean?Does it mean we work up warm fuzzy feelings for God? Or does it mean something more practical? Something we could do and do well?In our lesson today, we’ll answer the question of how to love God,  how to love Jesus as we look at where Jesus gives us specific answers and examples to follow in John 13-17. These chapters record the last time Jesus was with his disciples before he was crucified.We’ will talk about them in this lesson and our next one, so let’s get started on —How to Love Jesus, part one.For notes on this lesson, in PDF and online form, go to: http://www.bible805.com.

What do the Lord of the Rings, the movie Aquaman, and the book of 1 Samuel have in common?The answer to the question I just asked, is that in all of them a key theme is that people want a King. But not just any King, they want a King who is strong, good and just, and who will conquer evil enemies. You may be familiar with the stories of how Arthur Curry became Aquaman and Strider became Aragon, and in this lesson you’ll learn the history behind how Israel got its first king.Before the first King Saul, we will look at the life of Samuel, the last of the Judges. He's a powerful, fascinating character, that though over 13 chapters in the Bible talk about him, we know little of his personal life. But we know a lot about the things he did for God and how his life was the link between the time of the Judges and Israel's identity as a nation.

There is a very popular song boasts “I did it my way!” Though it sounds so appealing, to live our lives exactly how we want, is this really the best way to live?Today we’ll look at what the book of Judges that show us about 300 years of Israel’s history and what happened when they did exactly that.That events are told honestly in that story, as that is what the Bible does, and these events make Judges is one of the most difficult books of the Bible to read.Though it has the stories of some familiar names like Sampson, Gideon, and Deborah, who accomplished great things for God, the book fills in the details of their lives, some of which weren't all that great. In between these well-known characters are also the stories of a number of other Judges who also led Israel for a time.The span of the book is over 300 years and the entire book is a sad cycle of sin, oppression, crying out to God, God saving them through a Judge, a time of peace, and then falling back into sin and starting the cycle all over again because as the book ends up saying, it was a time where "everyone did what was right in their own eyes."In the midst of this book we also read the story of Ruth, who lived during the time of Gideon and her story shows us that no matter how bad things might be or how crazy our world becomes, there will always be people who choose to serve God and who protects and honors. Judges and Ruth show us there will always be two ways to live--God's way or our way. The lesson end with sharing perhaps why we don't choose God's way and the reasons why his ways are always best. They may not be the easiest, but they are they way to true joy and peace.
