Who is God?

Responses to Questions: Part 17

Responses to Questions: Part 17

We tackle the following questions on Prayer:

1. When we pray to God, is it ok to then ask the Holy Spirit to plead for us as there are times we need to be asking for help or wisdom and don’t even know how?

2. Can we change God’s mind through prayer?

An Inner Spring (Isaiah 41:17-20)

An Inner Spring (Isaiah 41:17-20)

God provided water in the desert for Israel. Several Old Testament texts use the image of water to convey the promise of another event where God would provide water for those who are thirsty. So what does this have to do with Jesus? And with the Holy Spirit?

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go (Romans 8:26-39)

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go (Romans 8:26-39)

The story behind the hymn “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go” is soul-stirring. What’s even more powerful is the text from which its ideas are drawn - Romans 8. We dive into this text in order to see the truths which ground our confidence in a divine love which will not let us go.

Wisdom, Might, and Riches (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Wisdom, Might, and Riches (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Jeremiah 9:23-24 presents us with 2 trios - one describing what we have (Wisdom, Might, and Riches), one describing what we should do with what we have (Steadfast Love, Justice, and Righteousness). We take a deep dive into the terms used and what it means to know God.

  1. Please explain Isaiah 30:20 - “Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them."

  2. According to 1 John 2:20 and2:27, I have received an anointing. What anointing did I receive? And who is the Him when it is “from Him”? Is this God the Father, God the Son, or God the Holy Spirit?

The Fellowship of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:11-14)

The Fellowship of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:11-14)

In signing off from the message of 2 Corinthians, Paul uses the expression “the fellowship of the Spirit” in his blessing to these fellow Christians. The expression is also used in Philippians 2. We explore how God’s Holy Spirit holds His people together in fellowship.

Christ, Our Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Christ, Our Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Prophets, priests, and kings once served in the roles of temporary mediators between God and men. But they were all shadows of a permanent mediator who was to come. We explore the Incarnation of God in Jesus, how He is the perfection of Prophethood, Priesthood, and Kingship, and the implications of His position as mediator.

In Him We Live and Move and Have our Being (Acts 17:24-28)

In Him We Live and Move and Have our Being (Acts 17:24-28)

Your very being is contingent on God’s being. Every breath you take is a gift from Him. We explore the implications of this truth.

As God Sees (1 Samuel 10:21-24)

As God Sees (1 Samuel 10:21-24)

Studies have shown we are generally more likely to trust the people we find attractive or have a “presence” about them. Those who “look the part” are more likely to receive our listening ears, our votes, our willingness to hire them, and our delegation of important roles to them. 1 Samuel highlights how the Israelites, including the prophet Samuel, fall into the trap of relying on the data their eyes are receiving. But God has a strong message about the reliability of our eyes in making value judgments. We explore and apply.
