The Rise Of David

In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers takes us through the compelling story of the rise of the greatest king of Israel, King David.

The Downfall of Saul

King Saul was the first king of Israel, and a good, strong king at that. but when God raised up David to become his successor, Saul couldn't handle it and he turned away from God. Today, Dr. John Akers shows us what lessons we can take from the story of Saul's downfall.

Unrestrained Anger and Unrestrained Grace

As Saul reached the end of his reign and David rose up for his beginning, Saul became angry and jealous. He attacked David over and over with unrestrained anger, but every time David responded with total grace. In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines the examples set by both men.

The Example Of Saul

Those of us familiar with the story of King Saul may mostly remember his ungodly treatment of David later in his life. But Saul was chosen by God as the first king of Israel for a reason, and in today's Understanding God's Word Dr. John Akers shows us how the early part of Saul's reign stands as a good example of leadership.

Does God Change His Mind?

Today we start a new series in the Old Testament in which we study three of the most important kings of Israel: Saul, David, and Solomon.

Belief And Action

We have been told that we are saved by faith alone, and not by actions. But there sure is a lot of scripture that tells us how and how not to act. So what is the truth? Do we only need to believe? Or is it our actions that save us? Dr. John Akers looks at this question in today's installment of Understanding God's Word.

Committed Disciples

God calls for us to become fully committed to our discipleship. But what does that look like in action? Dr. John Akers talks us through this concept in today's Understanding God's Word.

Parting Words

This week in Understanding God's Word, we look at difficult moment in the life of Paul. As he was writing 2nd Timothy, Paul knew that he was speaking to his closest friend for what was almost certainly the very last time. Dr. John Akers takes us through the final advice of a Godly man.

Laws Of God And Man

We are all subject to the laws of the country in which we live. But we have also chosen to follow the law of God. What do we do when those laws conflict? In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines this question.

Spiritual Goals

Now that we have been saved, what's the next step? Presumably we should be moving forward in our Christian faith, but what does that look like? What are we striving towards? In today's episode of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses these questions.
