Lesson 4: The Water of Life

It was hot.  It was mid-day.  No one would dare come all the way out to Jacob’s well to draw water in the burning sun.  But she didn’t have a choice.  She would rather bear the heat of the sun than the venomous heat from people.  Yea, she messed up.  She repeatedly found love at […]

Lesson 2: Preparing a People

Lesson 2: Preparing a People

Some day I’d like to return Madrid, Spain.  I really would.  But right now, right now it’s no where in sight.  So, I’m not making any plans.  I’m not scoping out ticket prices.  I’m not figuring out where I’m going to stay.  No bags are being packed.  I wonder if this lesson resonates with the […]

Lesson 12: John’s Letter to the Chosen Lady

Lesson 12: John’s Letter to the Chosen Lady

The relationship between truth and love seems to be something most of us miss in practice.  When you really think about it though, can you have one without the other?  Can you be a doctrine-abiding Christian SDA without love?  Can you love without knowing the truth? Assume it’s possible to know truth and not love […]

Lesson 1: Jesus and the Johannine Letters

Lesson 1: Jesus and the Johannine Letters

This quarter, we will be reading other people’s mail. It’s all the more exciting because we’re not merely glancing through a stack of old bills or pieces of junk mail. We’re catching a glimpse of the juicy stuff – the stuff that’s typically forbidden and off limits to anyone but the recipients. In this case, […]

Lesson 6: Sin

Lesson 6: Sin

I just looked in the mirror and realized that for every sin I committed this week, there’s probably a visible manifestation on my face.  I had a really trying week and worry consumed me taking me from one stupid decision to the next, until Friday I just felt as though I was drowning in a […]

Lesson 2: Faith

Lesson 2: Faith

As most of you will probably see, I haven’t written for the site in a while. I could sit here and blame it on work or school, I could sit here and blame it on others besides myself, but in all truthfulness, I would be lying. The very topic this lesson addresses is the same […]

Lesson 1: Love

Lesson 1: Love

The greatest of all commandments is love. Love your neighbor as you love yourself and above all, love the Lord your God, That’s the commandment given to us by Jesus. Why is it that the world today has indistinct meaning of love? We all hunger for love from the day we are brought to this […]

Lesson 13: Confidence in the Prophetic Gift

Lesson 13: Confidence in the Prophetic Gift

“uninspired,” he said.  That’s the reason I find myself discussing this week’s lesson.  The original author assigned to post Lesson13 didn’t end up doing so, and our backup after studying the lesson found himself in a position I now can empathize with.  I started writing late last night and quickly had to click the “Save […]
