Timeline of Truth:  Deborah and Barak Lead a Celebration of God’s Victory Over Israel’s Enemies (Judges 5:1-31)
Through Deborah’s prophetic prompting, Barak obeyed God and defeated the occupying, oppressive enemy of Israel. Deborah and Barak sing a song, and the song recounts details that we did not find in Chapter 4. Two key lessons we draw from the song: (1) Leaders need to lead willingly and people need to follow willingly to experience God’s blessing; (2) Our scope of responsibility extends beyond our own needs, but also extend to the needs of others.

Timeline of Truth: Joshua Prepares the People to Enter the Land (Joshua 1:10-18)

After being encouraged by God, Joshua goes to the people and prepares them to begin to take the land God has promised to them.  The people respond in full support of Joshua’s leadership and are ready to do as God commanded them.  God shows us a good lesson about leading and following. Good leading and good following go together.

God Explains Marriage, Part 3 (Ephesians 5:22-24) – The Wife to the Husband

Monday, March 10th, 2014

What does the idea of submission mean? How does it relate to the rest of our relationships in life?

How is a wife to submit to her husband, and on what basis? What if a husband is going the wrong way, or doesn’t measure up to what his wife thinks he should be?

This study answers these questions direct from God’s Word.

God Explains Marriage, Part 2 (Ephesians 5:22-24)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

We start to look more closely at the specific commands in Ephesians 5-22-33. Since the passage begins with the wives, we do the same.

First we look at the statement in v.21 which says “submitting to one another,” and how the six individual roles are commanded to carry that concept out as it relates to their specific relationships.

Second we examine why the wives are commanded before the husbands. We discover that this pattern is not limited to the wives. A very interesting observation surfaces.
