Love Teaching Notes
Eight Principles of a Christ-Centered Marriage by Jill Briscoe
The greatest need of every person is to know how to give love and receive it. Just ask any psychologist. However, this relational art depends greatly on what you mean by the English word “love.” The Greek language has several words for love: eros, storge, philia, and agape. In much of the world, we worship eros—the sexual, sensual part of love. It’s the “feeling too big for words” part—the passionate, heady, romantic element. And so often, it’s how we determine if we’re satisfied with our marriage.
L-O-V-E by Renee Fisher
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. - 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 When you’re in love, it shows. In fact, if you’ve been to a wedding recently, you prob-ably heard 1 Corinthians 13 read aloud. This passage is popular because it talks about love. Here is a fun way to remember what l-o-v-e is...
How to Receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit by Jamie Rohrbaugh
Do you love Jesus ever so desperately, but you sense that He must have more for you? Do you feel dry inside, and feel like you need to be anointed with fresh oil from Heaven? Do you read the stories about how God moved in power in the book of Acts, and long for Him to do those things in your life too?
Do you lack real POWER in your life?
If you said yes to any of those questions, then you need the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The Well of Addiction by Sheila Wise Rowe
My people have committed a compound sin: they’ve walked out on me, the fountain of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves (Jeremiah 2:13, The Message Bible). The water from The Well of Addiction has the same taste as the fruit Adam and Eve tasted when they decided to believe the serpent’s lie that if they ate of the tree, they would become like God, knowing good and evil. It was the taste of mistrust that came from the belief that somehow God was holding out on them and was not concerned for their good. If He was not out for their good, then He could not be trusted to do what was right by them. So they decided to take care of themselves and paid the price which we have inherited to this day...
The Reckoning by Paulette Phillips
Zechariah 2:8 states that anyone who tries to touch Israel touches the apple of God’s eye. Haman was about to pay the consequences for trying to hurt the people of God! After Haman felt the humiliation of leading a parade for Mordecai, Haman’s wife told him that he was beaten and undone. She informed him that he would “never succeed.” But Haman still went to the second banquet full of hope. I wonder if he had a cool exterior or if he was edgy and nervous inside! He likely had no idea that the massacre he had planned for the Jews would never be a reality. Instead, Haman would be destroyed and his name would live on in disgrace forever...
Already Free (Part 11) by Christina Patterson
In this study I want to talk about the importance of knowing God and Him knowing us. When I say "know" I don't just mean a bunch of head knowledge about God, but I mean "know" as to to know personally and intimately. It's knowing God in this way that leads to true freedom. Paul further explains this truth in Galatians...
Don't Walk by the Light of Your Own Fire by Debbie Stuart
Grab your Bible, and turn to Isaiah 50:11 Lord, Your Word tells us that the unfolding of your Word gives light, would You please light our path with Your Word. Help us now to focus entirely upon You and Your Word and center our thoughts on Your plan and purpose for our life. I’m a country girl at heart. I love a porch, rocker or swing, flowers in the old washtub, birds gathered around the birdfeeders and the smell of honeysuckle growing on the fence. If I had a window sill, I’d put some tomatoes on it...
Love Without Fear - Love in Action by Shanna Gregor
Worry and anxiety plague our nation today. From childhood and late into adulthood we face all kinds of fears. Fear is the opposite of faith. It strives to destroy all that God desires for us to have. God, in His love has provided all we could ever need to combat this enemy of our faith - love is the answer to fear. My children learned at a very young age that God has not given us a spirit of fear. Although both my children approached life fearlessly, my oldest son battled nightmares for a season when...
Empty to Full by Christy Fay
God can do anything, you know-far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! (Ephesians 3:20 MSG). Ruth 3 leaves us a little in suspense, doesn’t it? Ruth has just laid her heart on the line by petitioning Boaz to step in as her redeemer. What you might not know or interpret from the text directly is that Boaz is somewhat surprised by her request. He is older than Ruth, possibly much older. She is not only younger than he, but also beautiful. He is flattered and overjoyed by her pursuit, but surprised, nonetheless...
Mercy in Our Relationships by Jennifer Waddle
‘‘Just call me Grace!’’ I laughed when I said those words, but my face was red with embarrassment as my broken sandal hung loosely around my twisted ankle. For years, I’d envisioned tripping on stage, but that day it became a reality. The sad part was, I’d tripped over nothing except my own two feet! Despite my turned ankle and skinned knee, I hobbled to the microphone and said lamely, ‘‘Just call me Grace!’’
Much More! (3 of 3) by Carol McLeod
Paul … the man who had hunted down Christians to murder them. Now loved Jesus … He believed in Jesus as Messiah! Paul who had been born into every advantage and benefit that the Jewish culture could offer. Laid it all aside for the sake of the call of Christ Jesus. He loved the church at Ephesus - sent letter from Roman prison cell. “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father …” - Eph. 3:14. What is the reason that Paul bows his knees before the Father? What is it that drives Paul to his knees in prayer? Read the verse before in order to fight out his reasoning...

''You know, Humphry, they're letting her out this morning,'' Peters said as he paced around his study, sweating profusely. He hadn't slept at all, and he had to admit he was more than a little relieved to find Humphry waiting for him in his library. ''What are we supposed to do if she talks?'' .
