Rightly relating to reality

Our Men’s Bible Study (aka MBS) had its regular weekly Zoom meeting this Thursday morning with a good turnout of faithful and mature believers in attendance. Today it was again my quarterly turn to share the message. As I go over the editorial comments of my advance reviewers in preparation for the publication of our final book in Course 2, entitled Heaven: Our Ultimate Destiny, I’ve been getting a good dose of reality. God’s plans are real, not speculative, and the only way we can understand rightly how to move forward in our lives is through seeking and receiving His input continuously. The presentation I gave to our MBS group lays out some of the difficulties and challenges that face us in our modern world.

The day before we met, I circulated a handout entitled “Who will take the son?” available for download here. We need to know with security where we are with respect of God and His Kingdom. Are we solidly in or dangling loose out there somewhere? My MBS presentation crowded my one-hour allotment and, as usual, stimulated some lively feedback and discussion. Click here to download and view a PDF of my PowerPoint presentation and/or here (with Passcode u#S0q5f$) to link to a Zoom video recording of the presentation with a split screen showing the PowerPoint. My talk starts at about the 6-minute mark.

PS: The Zoom format has also proven to be an excellent venue for Celebrate Salvation groups. If you’re interested, have any questions about my recent talk or groups in general, or would like some support in getting a group going in your neighborhood or church, please feel free to contact me!
