Teaching Notes: On The Enter-Rest Dynamic Of Prayer

I had the privilege of producing several Christian radio programs during the 1970s. God saved me from atheism when I worked in radio, so it was a wonderful opportunity to be involved in Christian radio for several years.

I began producing programs within months of becoming a Christian, so my work in Christian radio was primarily as a producer and announcer. I worked with several excellent Bible teachers and evangelists to produce their radio programs and schedule airplay on a network of stations in both North and South America.

I also had the opportunity to teach on the radio programs from time to time and these notes are from one of those programs.

Teaching Notes: On Dynamic Christianity – The Beginning

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18

When we say that the Christian life should be “dynamic,” we’re saying it should be “powerful.” The Greek word Paul used in his letter to the Christians in Corinth is δύναμις (dunamis). The English word “dynamic” comes from the Greek and means “power, might, ability, energy” (the French word is dynamique). A dynamic life is a “powerful” life, a life with the energy and ability to achieve mighty things.

The idea of the Christian life being powerful is a central theme of the Bible. With that introduction, I’d like to share a series of Bible studies taught in churches more than 40 years ago. We invite you to read and share with others in any way God leads you.

Teaching Notes: On The Holy Spirit

Teaching God’s Word is one of the highest privileges and responsibilities on earth. I’ve been looking through some Teaching Notes from the 1970’s to see what I studied and taught in the early years of ministry. So far, we’ve looked at Teaching Notes On Teaching, On God, On The Sovereignty of God, On The Holiness Of God, On The Trinity, On Jesus Christ, On Why Jesus Came, On Jesus’ Death And Resurrection, and On The Judgment Seat Of Christ. If you haven’t looked at these notes yet, we invite you to read them and to use them in any way that helps in your teaching ministry.

We turn now to Teaching Notes On The Holy Spirit.

Teaching Notes: On Why Jesus Came

The sermons and lessons that have been and will be preached and taught about Jesus Christ must number in the hundreds of millions, if not billions. Jesus is our life and light, our heart and soul, our reason and purpose, our hope and goal.

In our last Teaching Notes we looked at Jesus Christ as the Second Person of the Trinity. We now look at why He came to earth from Heaven.
