Last week, we learned about the author of the letter. This week, we consider its recipients—the Roman church. And though we are separated from them by time and space, we share with them similar needs and questions in our relationship with God. Questions to Consider: Do you consider yourself part of the “all” that Paul is referencing? Do you trust—and can you rest in—the truth that you are loved by God?Paragraph Description Romans Cor Chmieleski Hope Community Church - Downtown Minneapolis Download Message Slides For more resources or to learn more about Hope Community Church, visit hopecc.com.

This is the section of the Striving for Eternity doctrinal statement that is addressed: Justification before God is an act of God (Romans 8:33) by which He legally declares righteous those who, through faith in Christ, repent of their sins (Luke 13:3; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 11:18; Romans 2:4; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Isaiah 55:6-7) and confess Him as sovereign Lord (Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 12:3; 2 Corinthians 4:5; Philippians 2:11). This righteousness is apart from any virtue or work of man (Romans 3:20; 4:6) and involves the imputation of our sins to Christ (Colossians 2:14; 1 Peter 2:24) and the imputation of Christ's righteousness to us (1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

God has positioned prophets in the body of Christ to spend time in His presence and get to know what is expected and how to counter them in the place of prayer. Some of them can be avoided but some will take place with impact that might be reduced if we take our prayers seriously in the secret place of intercession and dialogue with our Heavenly Father. Some of the prophecies you will hear in this short post you have received from our earlier post as revealed to us in the secret place..these are confirmation...the Spirit of God is one! The presentation my vary because God is not a cloner...we are all unique..just as the gospels of Mathew and, John and Peter present different fragrance of the same eye witness account. So also are the events or the vibration from the realm of the Spirit.. Just focus on the general message and take corresponding action in the secret place where necessary. One of the function of the Holy Spirit is to show us things to come so that we are not ignorant like those who can't see in day light except they are keyed into the dimensions of the almighty God, our Father! We bring in content from different parts of the body of Christ on otakada.org platform from the five fold ministry gifts for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry. We do not focus on any denomination but bring messages from ever part of the body of Christ because Christ is one!

Loving the Christ-life!
Renewing the Mind, Part 3

Loving the Christ-life!

Love Is A Choice By Tammy LacockIn this week's podcast, Warren continues to emphasize, through Paul's epistles, the importance of now having a radical mind-change as a believer in Christ. Through knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and revelation (words that deal with the spiritual growth of the mind), Paul says we must “be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). If we are ever to live our new lives completely in Christ, “that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2), living who God created us to be, our minds must turn from focusing on outer things, the things of this world, to Christ within us, our new life. Warren reminds us of the knowledge and understanding Paul gives us in 1 Thessalonians that we are a tripartite being, made in the image and likeness of God. We are soul, body, and spirit. When we're saved, we are saved in our spirits. This is where Christ is now joined to us, making us one spirit in Him (1 Corinthians 6:17). We are perfect in our spirits because of Christ, the Son who pleases the Father. His death, burial, and resurrection was a perfect atonement for the curse of Adam by Satan passed down through the generations. In our rebirth, God uprooted our sin-nature and replaced it with His Son's nature, the Seed of Christ, in our spirits. However, our souls, where our minds reside, have a lot of catching up to do. The radical change that took place in our spirits has yet to happen in our souls, where God is still working in our mind, will, and emotions, the part of us still growing in the revelation of the wisdom and understanding of Christ. Most Christians have no idea that Christ now lives in us, so their minds are still under subjection to their old life. What good is our life here if we have Christ in us but have no understanding of it? Paul says, now that our new life is Christ, our minds must now undergo a radical mind-change in our understanding of this new life. And he tells us we are not left alone in this task. The Holy Spirit's sole purpose is to teach us the things of Christ and comfort us in our new life in Christ. The Holy Spirit works in our minds to reveal Christ so that our souls come under subjection to our new life in Him in our spirits. Mind-renewal — the journey of the believer's mind which had been usurped by Satan since the curse of Adam — gives the mind over to the Christ now alive within. Paul says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5).Ultimately, the constant renewal of our minds will lead us into a deeper and deeper relationship with Christ. This is spiritual growth, the only growth that truly matters. Paul was the greatest psychologist of all time because, by revelation from Christ, he understood that our minds have been held captive for so long, making choices contrary to our creation. If there was any chance for us to know and love Christ and live our new life in Him, we would need a radical mind-change, a mind-change that helps us see that all God really wants from us is a personal relationship and reciprocal love. He wants us to use the free will He gave us to ultimately choose Him. So life is a schoolhouse, where the circumstances and situations, and moreover the crises, are meant to draw us inward to Him. No longer to the outer world, and even the outer Christ of miracles and wonders, but to the resurrected Christ who, by His death, now literally lives eternally in every believer. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 KJV)All He wants in return is for us to love Him back. Love is not an emotion; it is a choice. With Christ as our new life, isn't it time to get to know Him? And isn't it finally time to give our minds over to Him, to choose Him? Once

January 04 2023 Wednesday Week 16 / A Study In 1 Corinthians  Don't Provoke Him My Vision My vision is to teach the world Who They Are In Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior! To Teach them what the Bible says about them and who they have been made to be in the promises of God's Word. This changed my life years ago and completely transformed me from a person full of doubt, fear and unbelief to a strong confident Christian that knows I can do anything through Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. And I'm determined to teach the world what God has taught and commissioned me to teach and that is His Word.  That commission takes me to jails and detention centers weekly along with other open doors at many churches and ministries that are wanting to teach these important truths to the world. My podcast goes out 6 days a week to help the people I am ministering to grow in the truths that God has taught me for many years now. This podcast is free to all that want to listen and grow strong in who God has made them to be in Christ Jesus their Lord and Savior. My Prayers For The World Ephesians 1:15-23 NLT  'Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God's people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.'  Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT 'When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.'

In the world, there's no system or process that can help get rid of the wrong information that the human system has amassed over the course of mental and physical development. The storage is permanent. In the world are all kinds of people whose characters are the sum total or end result of all the negative information that has gone into them. However, when you're born again, the only material that has the capacity to erase, or delete all the wrong stuff from your mind and give you a fresh start is the Word of God. It's the only material that cleanses the heart, purifies the soul and renews the mind. The Word has sanctifying power. Jesus said in John 15:3, “…Ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” Acts 20:32 says, “And now brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up….” With the Word of God, you can reconstruct your life, you can frame your world; you can decide you want to fix something in any area of your life—whatever it is. Always take time to meditate on the Word and you'll make apparent progress and experience good success in all your affairs. There'll be an outburst of prosperity in every area of your life, to the praise and glory of God. PRAYER Dear Father, I'm yielded to be built, edified, energized and strengthened by your Word for a life of greatness, victory and triumphs. Through the ministry of the Word, I'm programmed; my mind is reconditioned for supernatural growth; there's an outburst of prosperity in every area of my life, in Jesus' Name. Amen. FURTHER STUDY: Joshua 1:8 AMPC This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good [a]success. 1 Peter 2:2 AMPC Like newborn babies you should crave (thirst for, earnestly desire) the pure (unadulterated) spiritual milk, that by it you may be nurtured and grow unto [completed] salvation, 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Revelation 12 & Micah 6-7 2 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Revelation 16:11-21 & Zephaniah 3     To give towards sponsoring free copies please kindly click the below link  https://buy.stripe.com/bIYcOj8vQepC3eM6op

In other words, you know yourself; you know how you think, and you can even predict your own actions. You can say, “In such and such circumstances, I'd react or respond to issues this or that way.” Now, consider this: the way you are or reason today— your current mindset—is a result of several factors. First is your parentage. From your parentage, you inherited certain traits. Then the society in which you grew up, the materials you consumed (the books you read, the films you watched, the things you listened to) all make up who you are today. All the information that came to you through your senses were recorded by your mental faculty and your physical body. Your body has a mind. Your cells have memory. The physical members of your body have memory; they store information. So, all the information you ever received actually got stored in you. Thus, each adult is an amazing conglomerate of massive storage facilities. Think about it: Your head has its own storage; your hand, your feet, all the systems of your body have so much inside them. All of these eventually lead to how you react to stimuli and how you respond to information or actions of other people. No wonder the Bible says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). Through conscious meditation on the Word, your mind is organized, reorganized, programmed or reprogrammed. Its contents and processes are synchronized with God's thoughts and perfect will for your life. That's what brings about the transformation. Prayer Dear Father, thank you for the transformational power of your Word; it renews my mind, transforms my life, reorganizes and reprogrammes my thoughts in the direction of your perfect will for my life. My mind is inundated with thoughts of prosperity and health, peace and possibilities, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

The Foundation of Jesus Christ was laid in us, when we heard and responded in faith to the Gospel of Christ by receiving Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour (1Cor 3:11). Once the Foundation of Christ has been laid, we need to build upon that Foundation by hearing and obeying (doing) the teaching of Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 7:24-27). The first 2 foundational doctrines in Hebrews 6:1-2: (1) REPENTANCE from dead works, and (2) FAITH toward God, together describe the basis for a whole new way of living, built on a new Foundation - Christ in us. We must REPENT of trusting in ourselves, and instead live by FAITH in the indwelling Christ, trusting in Him as our Foundation and Life-Source. Thus we are to change our whole base of operation from ourselves (our own strength, understanding and soul-life) to the Living God, and His Grace at work within us through the Holy Spirit. The foundational doctrines of repentance and faith do not just apply to our salvation, but to our everyday Christian life (Colossians 2:6). To live by faith in the indwelling Christ, it is necessary to understand the miracle of the rebirth (regeneration) of our spirit, making us a child of God, so Derek shares the Scriptures on the New Birth in John 1:12-13, John 3:3-16, Ephesians 2:1-10, Ezekiel 36:26-27, 2Corinthians 5:17-18, John 4:13-14, 7:38-39, Romans 5:5, Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 4:24, Philippians 4:13, Galatians 2:20). Now we are born again, we have the choice to walk by the indwelling Holy Spirit or by our flesh, from our independent soul life (Galatians 5:16-18). We either live by faith, under GRACE (living from the grace of God flowing from our spirit), or under LAW (keeping rules and principles in our own strength, living out from our soul, producing dead works) - Romans 6:14. “Jesus said: “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself (his independent soul life), and take up his cross (God's will), and follow Me (live a life of intimate fellowship with Jesus). For whoever desires to save his soul-life will lose it, but whoever loses his soul-life for My sake will find it (we will find our real life, identity and individuality, through the life of the Spirit)” (Matthew 16:24-25). We only please God, when we submit our souls to live under grace by faith, trusting in the Holy Spirit within us as our life-source. When we walk in the flesh, independent from God, living out from our own souls, in our own strength, we cannot please God, and we only produce dead (useless) works, which have no value to God (Romans 8:2-6). Therefore faith toward God and repentance from dead works (Hebrews 6:1) are the essential first foundational teachings undergirding our whole Christian life. Once we have been born again, we have His Spirit within us, but now we must learn to lean upon God's grace as our base of operation (Romans 8:5). Then we will experience life and peace (v6). If we submit to the abundance of grace that flows through His gift of righteousness, we will reign in life over sin (Romans 5:17). Our spirit is dead to (free from) sin and alive to God, but sin (the sin-nature in our flesh) still wants to reign over us (Romans 6:11-12), but as long as we live under grace (by God's Spirit within us, through faith), sin will not have dominion over us (Romans 6:14). That is, the power of the Spirit is greater than the power of sin in the flesh, so that as we trust and walk in the Spirit, we will not fulfil the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). This is confirmed by Romans 8:2: “The law of the Spirit of life (grace) in Christ Jesus makes me free from the law of sin and death." In this way, the righteous requirement of the law (love) is fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit (under Grace)” (v4).

"This Is What God Said About Faith..." Sunday Service @ The Remnant with Pastor Todd Please go to www.PastorTodd.org our central hub... To give, please go to www.ToddCoconato.com/give Why did God choose Abraham? To make him a blessing, first to the nation that would come from him—the Israelites—and ultimately to all the people of the earth. The same promise is reiterated in Genesis 22 when Abraham was ready to obey God's command to sacrifice Isaac, his promised son. God stopped him from harming Isaac and told him that his offspring would be as numerous as “the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore” (verse 17). From Abraham came the nation of Israel, God's chosen people, in whom were entrusted “the oracles of God” (Romans 3:2). The oracles included the law of God and the prophecies of the coming Messiah. Why did God choose Abraham? To prepare the way for the Messiah. God promised that in Abraham's offspring all the nations of the earth would be blessed (Genesis 22:1–18). The reference to Abraham's “offspring” in this passage is to Jesus Christ, through whom all the people of the world would be blessed with the opportunity for eternal life. Paul explained this to the Galatians: “Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, ‘And to offsprings,' referring to many, but referring to one, ‘And to your offspring,' who is Christ” (Galatians 3:16). Why did God choose Abraham? To reveal his faith as an example for us. “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8). We are to follow Abraham's pattern of faithful obedience when we are called to leave worldly pursuits and comforts. As heirs of Abraham's faith, we can look to his example and go where God leads us, trusting God for the future. Like Abraham, we should be looking for God's promises to be fulfilled in our lives. The result of Abraham's faith was that he simply and fully obeyed the call of God. Jesus said, “Any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:33). The kind of faith that God blesses is Abraham's kind of faith, one willing to leave everything behind for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ. If we do not resolve to forsake all things, to endure whatever hardships that may be ahead of us, and to persevere to the end of our days in the service of Jesus, we cannot be His disciples. We must be willing to give up everything, as Abraham did, and live by faith.

From God's standpoint there are 3 types of people. lost Jewish people, lost Gentile people and then Born Again Christians who are from a Jewish or Gentile backround. Is this something you have ever heard? The Jews thought they had a spiritual advantage over the Gentiles. They were given the law, circumcision, the temple and were "entrusted with the very words of God" (Romans 3:1). But we learn in Romans 3 that both the lost Jews and Gentiles are alike under sin. There is no difference between these two people groups and that "no one will be declared righteous in God's sight by the works of the law" (Romans 3:20).

We know salvation (sozo) is by grace through faith, and a gift, not of works (Eph 2:8-9). All of the promises of God are included in that word (appearing 110 times in the NT). So we receive them all the same way--entering the rest of receiving by grace through faith--and so we are also to live, in His power (Romans 5:17, Romans 8:37, 2 Cor 13:4, 1 John 4:9) and not by our own strength.The OT types of entering God's rest: - Israelites going from wilderness to Promised Land:- God's grace provided it, but the first generation failed to add faith (Heb 4:2). Psalm 95:7-11: God laments that they would not enter His rest because they knew His works but not His Ways, leading to an evil heart of unbelief (Heb 3:12, 19) and hardened hearts (Heb 3:15). - So knowing His ways is the key to entering His rest. Caleb's example: Joshua 14:7-15.- When they did finally go in, they still had a battle (though God fought for them and promised them victory): Hebrews 4:8-10- The type of the Sabbath: - Hebrews 4:4, quoting Genesis 2:2- Exo 20:11: God made this the 4th of the 10 Commandments (right after no Gods before Him, no idols, and not taking His name in vain)--so rest is key. (All the rest of the 10 Commandments were about how people were to interact with each other)- Blessings associated with keeping the Sabbath: Isaiah 58:13-14- The Heptadic calendar: - Week of days – Shabbat (sabbath): the day of rest- Week of weeks – Shavout - Week of months – the religious year- Week of years – the sabbatical year or the shmita year: when the land was to rest- Seven weeks of years + 1 – Jubilee year: when slaves/captives were to go free- Is it possible that God used the heptadic calendar, and structure throughout scripture of 7s appearing everywhere, because He intended to emphasize rest?- But it was always just a type, not about actual works on the Sabbath: Matt 12-1-12We can't achieve righteousness through our own works--the harder we try, the worse we get (Romans 7:15-20). This is meant to drive us toward giving up (Romans 7:22-25) and receiving righteousness/life from the Holy Spirit, who literally imbues our bodies with it (Romans 8:1-11). This isn't just about righteousness, or about receiving God's promises (2 Cor 1:20). Our "identity in Christ" also gives us the strength, energy, stamina, courage, etc to do what He has called us to do. - We "reign in life" through Him (Romans 5:17)- We were raised in Him to bear fruit to God (Romans 7:4). This includes love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal 5:22).- You can't bear these if you're burned out. "contentions, outbursts of wrath" are rather fruits of the flesh (Gal 5:20) which are consistent with burnout. If the fruit is negative, we're living from our own resources (flesh), not His (Spirit).- We are full of goodness and complete in knowledge (Romans 15:14).- We are enriched in every way (1 Cor 1:5).- We have the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16).- All things are ours (1 Cor 3:21).- His power is in us (Eph 1:19) - the word eis translated for or toward can also be translated in. Also Eph 3:20- We are competent and can be confident (2 Cor 3:4-6)- We can serve others from God's strength (2 Cor 13:4)- We have every blessing in the spirit realm (Eph 1:3)- God created good works for us to do, which we do in Christ (Eph 2:10)- We have grace and peace in abundance (2 Pet 1:2)- We have power, love, and self-discipline/sound mind (2 Tim 1:7)- We have everything we need for life and godliness so that we may participate in the divine nature (2 Pet 1:3-4)- Examples: - 1 Cor 15:10: Paul labored from God's grace- Jesus still went out on the boat, but slept through the storm (Matt 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41, Luke 8:22-25). We still labor, but plugged into His power source: - Heb 4:4, 11: we are to be diligent to enter His rest, and we enter by believing (Heb 4:3). Faith without works is dead (James 2:17-18) but the "work" is believing- Heb 12:1-2: run with endurance the race set before us, with our eyes fixed on Jesus, the joy set before us. Keeping our eyes fixed is how we lay aside the weights that entangle (deceitfulness of riches, desire for other things, Mark 4:19), and how we run with endurance (otherwise we'd collapse)- We give Him those weights that might entangle/burdens: 1 Peter 5:7- When we're weary, He will give us rest (recharge us): Matt 11:28-30- The Jews had swords to fight the giants. We have the sword of God's word as our weapon (Heb 4:12) which we use to resist the devil and demand what's ours (but remembering that the devil is defeated already, Col 2:15, Heb 2:14, which is where the rest comes in:)- Luke 18:1-8

I greet you in Jesus' precious name! It is Monday morning, 7 November, 2022, and this is your friend, Angus Buchan, with a thought for today. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”Romans 3:23I remember, a few years ago, going to the Pretoria Central Prison. I have been to prisons all over the world - I have been to an under-21 prison, in Scotland. I have been to a maximum security prison in New Zealand, where I have seen some of the biggest men in my life, just pumping iron all day long. I have been to prisons in Northern Ireland, going through those security gates one after another is quite daunting. Walking past the gallows where the guilty were marched to, to be hung. They tell me they would sing hymns on their way to the gallows while being marched to their end. When I went to Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, I heard a male choir sing for us before I addressed the inmates, about fifty strong. All dressed in their orange overalls, serving time for things they had done wrong. I have had the privilege of listening to some of the top music groups in the world but rarely, very rarely, have I been brought to tears by their singing like I was when I heard these inmates singing with no accompaniment of any musical instruments. It was like the Lord visited us. When I got up to speak, the Lord gave me such a love for these men who were in prison. Some for life, they had made mistakes but they were paying the price - Some had made some very bad ones, nevertheless they were in jail and serving their sentences. They looked at me with their arms crossed, some looking quite angry. I said to them, “Men, the only difference between you and me is that you have got caught, I never got caught." Straightaway they put their arms down, they relaxed and they started to identify with me. Then we felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, tangibly, come down upon us .I want to say to you today that Jesus says, if you look at a man with hatred in your heart, you have committed murder. If you look at a woman with lust in your heart, you have committed adultery. Therefore, all of us are guilty - all of us have fallen short of the glory of God, so we need to extend more grace and more mercy on those who have made mistakes and who have fallen.Go out today and love people, especially the unlovely and the Lord will honour you for that. Jesus bless you and goodbye.

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

I am adopted. From what I hear from my parents, adopting me was not an easy task! Lots of paperwork, government background checks, and other miscellaneous things—it took them many months before they could adopt. Adoption takes lots of money and time. It's definitely not a calling for everyone, but when God does call people to adopt, it's a reminder of the adoption we have in Christ. As Christians, we are adopted into the family of God. This adoption is much different than when earthly parents adopt a child. It's free for us, because Jesus paid the price by dying on the cross. In this adoption, there is no paperwork or money involved, and it's simple—even a young child can be adopted into the family of God. The only thing needed for our adoption is salvation, and it's free to all who believe that Jesus is their Savior! When we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are adopted as sons and daughters of God. Because we are in Christ, nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39)! God loved us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross and rise from the dead so we could be His children. Praise Him for making a way for us to be adopted into His family! • Lilly Wiscaver • Have you been adopted into God's family by putting your trust in Jesus? If not, what's holding you back? (For more about what it means to put your trust in Jesus, check out the “Know Jesus” page.) • Can you think of any other ways earthly adoption reminds us of the adoption God has made for us? For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26 (NLT)

More Than a Song - Discovering the Truth of Scripture Hidden in Today's Popular Christian Music

When Ben Fuller sings, "Making my Father proud looks a whole lot different now" in his new song "Proud," he is ripping pages out of my story and laying them bare. I spent a lot of energy trying to please earthly men. What I really want to know is how to please my Heavenly Father. Join me as we dive into a few ways we can please God. The question is, are we up for the challenge? In this week's episode, I discuss the following: Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture - this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include: Consult an overview Read in context (read the whole letter) Listen to an audio version of the text Follow the cross-references Make observations Make a list Complete a word study Consult an outside resource Meditate on Scripture Compare and contrast How my personal story is reflected in the lyrics of Ben Fuller's song, "Proud" Walking in a way that is pleasing to God - 1 Thessalonians 4:1 Discovering what cannot please God - Romans 8:8 What walking in the flesh looks like - Romans 8:5-8 Our hope that we can ever walk in the Spirit - Romans 8:9-11 Consulting an overview of 1 Thessalonians to discover the theme of exhorting godly living Making observations of the text to meditate on or explore further Ask and urge - "1 & 2 Thessalonians Verse by Verse" by Grant Osborne - Amazon Paid Link Sanctification - GotQuestions.org Article God as "Avenger" The contrast between impurity and holiness The sex-saturated world in the time of the Thessalonians is not unlike our own - "Exalting Jesus in 1 & 2 Thessalonians" by Mark Howell - Amazon Paid Link How abstaining from sexual immorality carries with it the idea of distance -- don't even get close to it The Greek word for "avenger" - BibleHub.com - God is a justice giver and cares deeply about this subject John Stott, "Some Christians sow to the flesh every day and wonder why they do not reap holiness. Holiness is a harvest; whether we reap it or not depends almost entirely on what and where sow." Paul's illustration of slavery helps us understand - Romans 6:19 Practical steps to move toward holiness Love one another - 1 Thessalonians 4:9-10 Aspire to quiet living - 1 Thessalonians 4:11 Mind your own affairs - 1 Thessalonians 4:11 Work with your hands - 1 Thessalonians 4:11 The bookends of "urge" and "do this more and more" - 1 Thessalonians 4:1, 10   Becoming a slave to righteous living is what pleases God and puts us on the path to greater holiness.   More Than a Song Playlist Additional Resources Lyrics - NewReleaseToday.com The story behind the song "Proud" by Ben Fuller - YouTubeVideo Weekly Challenge Read or listen to all of 1 Thessalonians.

“We know that all things work for good for those who love God” Romans 8:28 Karen Maxwell joins us on the podcast again to answer many of the questions that people have as they are first beginning their journey in The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  What is the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd? How do we begin CGS in my parish or school? What is CGS adult formation like? How do I get all the materials? What is an atrium? How many adults do I need to start CGS at my parish or school? Do I need to do the formation in succession? How much does it cost to start CGS? How much time needs to be allotted for an atrium session? Are there books that are recommended for those just starting to be curious about this work? Karen became involved with Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in 1990 when her oldest daughter was four years old. She was moved by the spiritual depth offered to the youngest children and found this approach to faith formation personally enriching as well. She helped to begin all three levels of atria in the first church in Georgia to offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She also enjoys introducing adults to this method of catechesis as a CGS formation leader. Karen joined the staff for the United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in 2004 as Director of Formation. Her work supports formation leaders and catechists through communications, conferences, ongoing formation and resources as well as in responding to a variety of inquiries and pastoral concerns about CGS. Karen is one of two US representatives to the International Council. She also was part of the first cohort to complete a Masters in Pastoral Studies in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at Aquinas Institute of Theology. Karen currently serves as a Level III catechist for a church in her area. Her children, now young adults, all were involved in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  For further questions about CGS you can email Karen at karenmaxwell@cgsusa.org Link to PDF Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: An Introduction   Another episode with Karen about Catechists Formation    To listen to the article Characteristics of the Good Shepherd Catechesis by Sofia Cavalletti   The Religious Potential of the Child  The Good Shepherd and the Child: A Joyful Journey The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in the Parish Setting   For a list of episodes to help you dive into the chapters in The Religious Potential of the Child and The Good Shepherd and the Child: A Joyful Journey   The Characteristics of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd #3 states that: The atrium is a community in which children and adults live together a religious experience that facilitates participation in the wider community of the family, the church, and other social spheres. We see the atrium as a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation, and prayer. The atrium is a place in which the only Teacher is Christ; both children and adults place themselves in a listening stance before his Word and seek to penetrate the mystery of the liturgical celebration.   Learn more about the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at www.cgsusa.org   Follow us on Social Media- Facebook at “The United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd” Instagram-  cgsusa Twitter- @cgsusa Pinterest- Natl Assoc of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd USA YouTube- oneofhisheep
