  • The Wisdom of God Media Resource by

  • The Immutability of God Media Resource by

    It is hard for anyone to go a day, even an hour, without changing in some way. Our thoughts and emotions are in a constant state of flux. Even our greatest desires and plans change over time. God, however, never changes His mind or His course of action in the world. He is an immovable rock, a mighty fortress, and the only sure anchor in an ever-changing world. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explores the biblical view of God’s immutability, showing how His character, Word, plan, and salvation never change. View Resource

  • The Omnipotence of God Media Resource by

In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explores the nature and extent of this incomprehensible power. View Resource

  • The Love of God Media Resource by

    Love is a word that is frequently thrown around without consideration of what it truly means. It is often thought of as feeling or attraction, but Scripture provides a much more profound understanding of what love is. Furthermore, it is God’s love that provides the exemplar for all derivative forms of love. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explores the depths of God’s love, which is an infinite and eternally self-giving love. View Resource

  • The Omnipresence of God Media Resource by

    As embodied beings, we are limited by space and time. When confronted with competing demands on our time, we often excuse ourselves by stating that we can’t be in two places at once. God, however, can be in two places at once. In fact, He is everywhere at once. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson unfolds the biblical teaching of God’s omnipresence, demonstrating that there is no place in heaven or hell, nor the entire universe, where God is not present in the fullness of His being.

  • The Holiness of God Media Resource by

    To many people today, holiness is a foreign concept. For the authors of Scripture, however, holiness is one of God’s most prominent attributes. It denotes both His separation from creation as the infinitely superior One and His absolute moral purity. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explains what it means to affirm that God is holy, and how an understanding of this truth affects how we approach the living God and live before Him in humble reverence.

  • The Aseity of God Media Resource by

    Of God’s many distinct attributes, one of the most difficult for finite human beings to come to terms with is His aseity, or self-existence. Unlike us, God has neither beginning nor end, and He is not dependent upon anyone or anything. In this message, as we consider God’s limitless abundance and our own neediness, Dr. Lawson invites us to seek full satisfaction and delight in the one who is the limitless source of all things.

  • The Spirituality of God Media Resource by

    The concept of spirituality is used to communicate a variety of different ideas. For some, this word indicates a conscious commitment to the things of God. To others, to say that someone is spiritual is to suggest that he or she has a generic interest in religious or supernatural matters. However, to speak of God’s spirituality is actually to identify Him as a spirit—an immaterial, invisible, and infinite being that is fundamentally distinct from material, visible, and finite creatures. In this message, Dr. Lawson investigates what it means to affirm that God is a spiritual being and why this aspect … View Resource

  • The Goodness of God Media Resource by

    It is not uncommon for those who face pain and hardship in this life to doubt the goodness of God. But the clear message of Scripture is that God is uniquely good, and that He is the measure for everything we call good. Considered together with His wisdom and power, Christians can be assured that God not only desires to reveal His goodness, but is able to accomplish His good plan in the best possible way. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explores what it means to say that God is good, and how His goodness is operative in the world. View Resource

  • Feet Firmly Planted in Midair Media Resource by

  • A Permanent Birth Media Resource by

    Ironically, we can become so afraid of losing something that we no longer fully enjoy having it. This is true in both everyday affairs and in spiritual matters. People will sometimes keep a prized possession out of harm’s way to such an extent that they no longer use it or enjoy it. Fortunately, Christians can rejoice in the knowledge that the forgiveness of sins, their relationship with God, and their eternal hope can never be taken away. Few truths are as beautiful as God’s promise that those who are born again receive a permanent birth and can never lose their … View Resource
