Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 39


            Legalism is the key ingredient to self-righteousness, which God hates. For those of you who have ever been burdened by the oppression of religious legalism, you are going to love these next 18 verses, in which Jesus verbally lashes out on 2 religious leaders for legalism and hypocrisy. I find it fascinating that of all the various things that Jesus could have publicly shown anger toward, it was always religious externalism and legalistic hypocrisy that set him off.

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 38


            This is Part 2 of a series on how God sees our prayers. We continue to explore Luke's record of what Jesus had to say concerning prayer and how he felt about it. Prayer isn't an incantation which prompts God to move the way we want, but rather, it's a live conversation of both speaking and listening to a God who desires to build a relationship with us. In this session, we discuss some of the main reasons why God wants us to pray, how to listen to God when we pray and how to defend ourselves from Satan's attempts to destroy our prayer-life. The last thing Satan wants is a Christian praying.

            The most incredible and advantageous gift that God has ever given to His children is the privilege to pray with confidence and without fear. Prayer isn't some mystic ability that only the learned can perform, it is simply the ability to communicate with the God of the universe at the most basic of all levels. If you know how to talk over a telephone, then you know how to pray to God. Unfortunately, Satan has done a great deal to confuse what prayer is all about, even among Christians. In this study, Jesus sets the record straight on prayer and what it's all about. This is Part 1 of a series on how God sees our prayers.
