Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room Bible Class continue the trek through the gospel of John with a discussion on the food that perishes versus the food that endures forever, what it means to be doing the works of God, and what Jesus’s love means for you.
This week Pastor Otte and the Upper Room Bible class continue through John chapter 5, talking about who and what the witnesses are that testify to the truth of Jesus as the Messiah. The class also discusses what it means to abide in the Word, and to have the Word abide in you.
Pastor Otte and the rest of Messiah’s Upper Room Bible Class jump back in to the book of John, picking up where we left off with Jesus performing a miraculous healing on the Sabbath. Here the class discuss Jesus’s teaching and proclamation that a time is coming when the dead will come to life again, and those who do good and evil are judged.
Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room Bible Class complete their series over the Red Letter Challenge with a discussion on the principle of “going” to make disciples of all nations. What did Jesus look for in terms of making someone a disciple? What fears may keep us from going forward to be disciples for Christ? The answers to these questions and more on this week’s episode.
Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room discuss what it means to give generously, and how being a grateful receiver of God’s gifts can change our focus from having a “scarcity mindset” to an “abundant mindset.”
Gina Lerhmann is our guest speaker while Pastor Otte is out this week as we continue with the first full week of the Red Letter Challenge. This coming week is all about “being” – being with God and being with His Word. The class discusses what it means to “be” and what it means to “feel”, what earthly treasures we may try to place over heavenly treasures, the importance of rest, and our identity given to us by God.
