Luke (Program #18) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in Galilee (9)

What does it mean to follow the Lord?  As believers we all should have this desire that day by day even moment by moment, we want to take the way that He is directing.  We probably heard the Christian life is described as a journey.  This is a valid way to look at the Christian life.  But a surprise thing to many of us is that once we finally to give ourselves to follow Him on this journey, the way He often leads us is not what we’d expected or hope for.  This is also the case with the Lord’s disciples in the first century as we see unfolded in the gospel of Luke.

Mark (Program #21) – The Move of the Slave-Savior’s Gospel Service (9)

In Mark chapter 8 verse 34, the Lord Jesus says, “if anyone wants to follow after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.”  If we would come after the Lord by gaining Him, experiencing Him, enjoying Him and partaking of Him then we need to deny ourselves. Take up our cross and follow Him. But what does it mean for us to take up our cross? This is the subject of our life study today.

Hebrews (Program #30) – To Be Brought on to Maturity and Fleeing into the Refuge with the Anchor and the Forerunner

Today we will see how as Christians we can be brought on to maturity and how we can flee into the refuge which God has created for us.

We’ve all experienced the feeling that we must never have been saved – the way we fail and fall away from the Lord and His grace at times. This is a common experience to all who desires to follow the Lord. But when we fall, God’s provision and His desire to restore us is a much different path than the one we paved for ourselves.

Proverbs (Program #8) – The Detailed Precepts for Man To Live a Proper Human Life (3)

The book of Proverbs is full of wisdom but the real purpose of Proverbs is to cultivate our new man. Yet many people come to the book of Proverbs seeking wisdom to help them and improve their old man, their natural life, to improve their “self”. But the problem is no matter how much we improve our “self”, we still according to the Lord’s word in Luke 17:33 we need to deny our “self”. We need to take up the cross and follow the Lord. So at best we’re perfecting our “self” that we need to deny. But if we have the light and we see Proverbs in a proper way, we can see the benefit of the book of Proverbs is to help us to cultivate our new man.
