Understanding the Mind-Blowing, Amazing Grace of God

The term "grace" is now so commonplace in Christian circles that in some respects it has lost its impact and full meaning.  While the common understanding of grace as "unmerited favor" is certainly true, there is much more to grace than this.  This teaching is an introduction to the deeper understanding of grace that will unfold throughout this series.  Prepare to marvel!

GOODNESS AND MERCY: The Lord is My Shepherd pt 10

In this final installment of the study of Psalm 23, the expanded definitions of "goodness and mercy" are examined in light of the Hebrew language in which it was written.  And God's goodness and favor toward His people are indeed extravagent.  He wants us blessed!  But many of God's people disqualify themselves from God's best either because they refuse to believe that He wants them blessed, or because they don't feel like they are worthy of it.  Both of those wrong mindsets are dealt with in this teaching on God's goodness and mercy.

YOU PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE ME: The Lord is My Shepherd pt. 9

What does it mean in Psalm 23:5 when it says that God prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies?  And what does it mean when it says that He anoints our heads with oil and our cup overflows?  To many, Psalm 23 has become simply a beautiful poetic sentiment that really has very little meaning in their lives in practical terms.  But this one verse is rich in meaning and promise for the true follower of Christ.  Prepare to get reinvigorated as you learn about your heritage and your anointing.

MORE THAN CONQUERORS IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH: The Lord is My Shepherd pt. 8

In the Kingdom of God there is always something to learn and opportunities for growth in the "valley of the shadow death."  So God is asking us to stay faithful and constant even when we would rather recoil from uncomfortable situations and bail out.  This teaching focuses on the reasons why James 1:2-4 says to rejoice in trial.  Ultimately, God is is trying to make overcomers out of us, and we cannot be overcomers unless there is something to overcome!  You were made to walk through the various valleys in your life and come out on the other side victorious!

THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH: The Lord is My Shepherd pt. 7

God never promised that we wouldn't go through difficult times, just that He would walk with us through them, guide us, and comfort us.  Times of testing are a part of every Christian's experience and provide an outcome of strength and endurance if we are open to the whispers of the Holy Spirit.  This timeless teaching is offered by BLF's own Tom Passo, with a special testimony by worship leader, Matt Cooley.

HE RESTORES MY SOUL: The Lord is my Shepherd pt. 4

The Good Shepherd seeks to restore our souls back to the original condition.  He has done this by His finished work of redemption on the cross, but His work of restoring our souls didn't stop with salvation of our souls alone.  It continues with a restorative process of remaking us into the people He had in mind for us to be from the beginning.  This teaching features the testimony of one of Blessed Life Fellowship's leaders, Pam Hull, author of The Stink Ditch, and who is a minister of the gospel to troubled young women.

The Lord is My Shepherd, pt 3: Consequences of Satan’s Sheep Pen

Jesus is known as the Good Shepherd, the one who restores our souls.  And He beckons us to come out of the pig pen people are living in and join Him in green meadows and beside still waters.  Many people do not realize until it's too late that the way they are living IS actually a pig sty, a place of physical and spiritual destruction designed by a despicable pied piper to lead people into ruin.  This teaching examines the real-life consequences of deviating from God's commands, which are designed to bring us life, and that more abundantly.  Scientific research on the emotional, physical, and social consequences of several moral issues prove the life-giving principles of Scripture and the ruinous consequences of violating it.
