Pastor Otte and the Upper Room class continue the discussion between Jesus and Nicodemus. The class tackles several thought-provoking questions regarding the love we receive from God and how it may brush against our human logic.
The Bible commands us not to steal. What are some ways theft is possible? What may some consider stealing, while others may not? Pastor Otte and the class discuss the Seventh Commandment and more on this week’s episode.
Due to popular demand, Pastor Otte provides bonus material of what marriage for God’s beloved looks like, what “to submit” means, how wives submit themselves to their husbands as the Church submits to Christ, and how husbands love and give themselves up for their wives as Christ loved and died for the Church.
In part 11 of our “Living the Life of the Beloved and the Belonged” Series, Pastor Otte and the class discuss what Jesus means when He commands us to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”, and for us to “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” In this session, we also dive deeper into Jesus’s teaching in how to strengthen our personal relationship with God, to not be showmen in our righteousness, and to not make a spectacle of our generosity when helping those less fortunate.
