Job Well Done

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

dreamsOn this Labor Day Weekend I did a message about work.  Work is not a bad 4-letter word.  When you think about it, the very first thing that the Bible records is God doing some work.  This is a pretty thorough Bible study on the topic.  The points include that work is in our nature, the benefits of working, the dangers of working and how to become a better worker.  We spent a lot of times in Proverbs.  I also share about my worst job ever.  We had a fun discussion about it.

Life Training Series

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

Spiritual VisitorsWe recently completed our Summer Life Training Series in our church in downtown Los Angeles.  This time we divided into men and women for our times together.  I taught the men a 3-week class entitled, “Men of Steel and Velvet.”  We looked in depth at the Bible about what it truly means to be a man.  We found that Jesus, the ultimate man, was someone who could be described as a man of steel and velvet.  His steel qualities of strength, determination and responsibility were beautifully balanced by his velvet qualities of compassion and humility.

The women were taught by Tommie Owens from Lancaster, California.  She did a 3-week series on great women of the Bible.  The first week was a study about Elizabeth.  Week two took a look at Ruth.  And in week three the women studied about Rahab the prostitute.

Here are links that will let you download these lessons.  Enjoy!

Living Well 2

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

Living WellThis week I shared a second lesson from the book of Ephesians. This great letter written by the Apostle Paul devotes three chapters to explaining some great truths about God. Then, in chapter 4 he gets very practical about how to live the Christian life. We took some time to understand the “Put-off, Put-on” principle in the Bible and then looked at what Ephesians 4 had to say about our talk and the heart of anger. The goal is to help you to live your Christian life well–according to God’s plan. I did the first part of this lesson last Sunday. We meet at 11 AM at the Roybal Learning Center. The free parking garage is located at 1151 West 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Endurance

perseveranceOn Sunday we were treated to a message by Nathan Morales.  Nathan is a member of our fellowship who manages commercial real estate in Los Angeles.  Nathan provides great leadership in our church and is an exceptional speaker.  On this Memorial Day weekend Nathan spoke about the importance of endurance.  He did a Bible study on Nehemiah.  Nehemiah is an Old Testament figure who was key in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem.  He and the Jews faced many obstacles.  The message of Nehemiah is one of perseverance and endurance.  If you are facing a challenge in your life this message will provide great encouragement.

The Heart of Giving

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

HeartToday we collected our annual Special Contribution.  I did a Bible Study for the church called, “The Heart of Giving.”  We did a brief history of man giving of his personal wealth to God.  We go all the way back to the book of Genesis and see that Cain and Abel are the first characters in Scriptures to make a sacrifice to God.  We stop for a brief visit with Abraham and Moses before heading into the New Testament.  What we discover is that God does not seem all that concerned about about the actual worth of the sacrifice. God DOES concern himself with two things.  The first is our heart. The second is the percentage of our wealth that we give.  It’s a cool study that I hope you find encouraging.
