Bible Talks by Dan Lee
Bible Text: Psalm 42
Whether it’s because we’re down, depressed, dry or feeling distant with God, here is a Psalm that we can all connect with. Along the way the Psalmist gives us three very practical lessons we can all learn from.
Bible Text: Genesis 12:1-5
Just as God spoke a certain word during the uncertain times of Abram, God speaks a word of certainty today. The promises he made to Abram in Genesis 12 are still being fulfilled today. What God promises, God does.
Bible Text: Genesis 6-9
Is God on our side? Is He still committed to us? A look at sin, judgement and grace in light of Noah’s flood.
Bible Text: John 21:15-23
Jesus rose. So what? John writes one more chapter to answer that question. In Peter, we’ll see how Jesus not only offers forgiveness but also his invitation to follow.
Bible Text: John 13:18-35
Jesus has given a model of love. Now he gives a command to love. In the midst of a betrayal Jesus demonstrates his continuing love and the fact that he truly is in a class of his own.
Bible Text: Ruth 1:1-14
Is it worth following Jesus in the midst of life’s disappointments? Ruth 1 answers that question as we see God put flesh on his promises through one ordinary family who walks through the messiness of life.
Bible Text: Acts 17:16-34
This is the third talk of a series on evangelism done at a 4pm church retreat. As Paul visits Athens in Acts 17, it is clear that he has gospel awareness. That one God who created all things, moves people around so that they would reach out for him. This same God also demands one response before we appear before one judge - the resurrected Jesus.
Bible Text: Colossians 3:18-19
Colossians offers only two sentences on marriage but they are two crucial sentences - one for the husband, one for the wife. Even though broken marriages are part of living in a broken world, these two verses affirm God’s good gift of marriage.
Bible Text: Psalm 90:1-17
There’s nothing more real than death. Thankfully the Bible gives us real answers to real questions from a real God as we live real lives. In Psalm 90, Moses makes three things abundantly clear: that humans are mortal compared to the eternal God; that towards sinful humans God is angry; and for insecure humans, God offers security.
