2014 Session 14: The Obedience of Faith

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally opens with a postscript on recent archeological discoveries in Jerusalem. Though not formally announced yet., the Israel Archeological Authority’s Eli Shukron has discovered a cut stone from the time of Herod. What makes the discovery so interesting is how it syncs with the words of Christ in Matthew 21:24, Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes?’” Following a brief discussion of this discovery, the conversation turns to Romans 16:19, and an emphasis on the interconnection of faith with obedience. “Obedience to the Lord requires that we continue providing witness, until the His return.”

Romans 16:19; 1:5-8; 10:18;15:18-19; 16:26; Acts 2:5; 17:6; 28:22; Colossians 1:6; 1:22; Matthew 24:14.

2013 Session 34: Works and Grace

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally takes up an issue that can be confusing.  We are saved by grace. Salvation is a gift from God, and not a status we earn through good behavior, performance of a ritual or mandated task. And while most Christians understand that our gift from God is not something we’ve earned, we are expected to serve God through our works. Whether feeding the poor, attending the sick or pursuing justice, our salvation directly links to tangible work. “How can we perform deep covenantal responsibilities, and yet reconcile those responsibilities to the notion: my yoke is easy and my burden is light?”

Romans 15:18; Ephesians 2:8,9,10; 1 Cointhians 1:30; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 3:7-20; 2 Corinthians 12:2; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 1:25-29

2012 Session 39: Cessation

Today’s discussion continues the conversation on “giftings” within the body of Christ. Though not an exhaustive study, the session touches on bravery, faith and the keen importance God places on Spirit-focused worship. “The age of spiritual giftings did not end with John’s last breath (on Patmos) in 99 AD.” The Holy Spirit was an active force in the Old Testament, and  continues as a dynamic influence in the New. ‘God is either involved with us … or not.”

1 Corinthians 12:4,5,11; Romans 12:3,6; Ephesians 4:7

2012 Session 32: Faith Isn’t Blind

In today’s discussion, Dr. Nunnally emphasizes the Biblical prescription for faith: “It’s vital for believers to remember God’s covenantal faithfulness — what He’s done in the past; we need to recall “redemptive history.”

Psalm 105, 1 Chron 16:22; Genesis 26:11; Romans 13:7
