Leaving Egypt Behind

When Israel left captivity in Egypt to go toward the Promised Land, the timing and the way they did it were spiritually significant. It was the day after Passover, and they walked out in the sight of the Egyptians as they were burying their dead. Those facts kept them humble that the Lord had been the One to deliver them and give them victory. But that didn't last, because the Jews really never left Egypt behind in their hearts. In this study of Numbers 13, we see five important steps we must take to move beyond the sins and heartaches of our past.

Unorchestrated Power

In an effort to "appeal" to what people want or reach a certain audience, churches often program a style of ministry for that intent. But this is not anywhere in the Bible--instead, we see believers praying and led by the Spirit, often unaware of what to say or do, but being used in profound ways. The apostle Paul wrote to Corinth, warning them against self-orientation and cleverness, showing them that the ideal is not our wisdom but a demonstration of the Spirit and His power. This short study from Prayer Meeting highlights 7 areas in which we need the Spirit to pour out His power on us.

The Tree And The Tomb

The greatest truth the world has ever heard is that Jesus Christ defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. Every person has to make a decision whether they should believe that or not. Those surrounding the cross show the different reactions people have to what Jesus has done. His cross is empty, which means that His work of redemption is done. His grave is empty, which means that He has won the victory forever. So, on this Resurrection Sunday, what do you believe about Jesus?

When Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with His disciples right before His crucifixion, they should have been aware of what was happening, and serve Him. But instead, they were distracted by their self-centeredness. Jesus then showed why He had come, and quietly took on the posture of a servant by washing the disciples feet. Peter's objection and the silence of the others stands as the attitudes we sometimes carry, while Jesus' actions give us the example of how we should act instead.

The Town

When Jesus came to Jerusalem to offer Himself as the Sacrifice for our sins, He didn't do so in a bold, self-promoting way. Instead, He rode a young donkey, weeping over the town as He viewed it from the Mt. of Olives. Every aspect of that was significant: The fulfillment of prophecy, His humility and identification with the people, and the work that He was doing to restore relationship and peace between God and man. And when He spoke to Jerusalem itself, it served as a metaphor for the lostness of mankind, and the different reactions we have to His call to repentance and salvation through Him Alone.

A Different Side Of Jesus

In cultural and in art, Jesus is often depicted as soft and tolerant of sin. But in Mark 10, we see Jesus as resolved and determined to fulfill His purpose, even knowing that the religious and political leaders of Israel had decided to put Him to death. So He leads the way to Jerusalem, shocking and scaring the disciples, who finally understood that He was going to the cross to redeem man from sin. This powerful example of Jesus' courage and commitment stirs us to stand strong for the Lord and our convictions.

Dangerous Duplicity

When Israel was taken into captivity by Assyria, because they had stiffened their necks against the Lord, the Assyrians brought in exiles from other nations to occupy Samaria. The Lord didn't forget Israel, but He also expected that these foreigners in their land would respect and fear Him. They initially acted like they did, but continued to worship their own gods. The Lord warns us against this duplicity, and challenges us to examine our lives to see if we are wavering spiritually instead of living completely for Him.

In this last study in our "Theology Of Giving" series, the focus is on what we can ask the Lord to give to us. Even though He has already done so much to save, transform and empower us, He is still willing to "give the increase" in certain areas of our lives. The Bible details four specific requests we should pray every day, which will bring the Lord glory and allow us to give back to others.

One vs. One Million

Wars in the Bible can serve as a metaphor for the problems and trials in our lives. Whether they are a spiritual attack or a proving of our faith, we need to respond with unwavering faith. In 2 Chronicles 14, Judah faced the Ethiopians, and they were outnumbered and under equipped. But King Asa called on the Lord. The perspective of his prayer, and what he asked, showed that he knew the Lord would provide victory. In this short study from Prayer Meeting, Pastor Rhoads explains that not only was the Lord's victory complete, but He also graciously rewarded their confidence in Him. He is ready to do the same in our lives.
