Self Absorbed World

It's easy to focus too much on our own well-being and lose track of the world around us. But the Bible encourages us to fight that urge and turn our attention outward towards the well-being of others. In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. Akers takes us through these instructions set down in the book of Phillipians.

Facing Down Hopelessness

It's fair to say that we have all experienced and will continue to experience times of hopelessness, even when we firmly believe in our salvation through Christ. Hopelessness is just a byproduct of being in the world, but luckily God grants us the tools we need to overcome it. In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses hopeless times in the life of Paul, and how he overcame them through Christ.

Ladder to God

A Cure Worse Than The Disease

In this episode Dr. John Akers wraps up our study of the historical books of the Bible by looking at the life of the prophet Samuel. In Samuel's story we can see the consequences that occur when we act on a fast and simple solution to a problem instead of waiting for God's answer to our prayers.
