These illuminating 'faith lessons' afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life. Church Volume One -- Contents -- Part of a series previously published as That the World May Know, Faith Lessons on the Promised Land focuses on how God put his mark on a people and their land -- a mark that he has extended through ancient Israel to the faithful today. Video One1. Standing at the Crossroads (Tel Gezer) As God called the ancient culture of Gezer to impact the rest of the world for his glory and purpose, so he calls upon us to do the same today.2. Wet Feet (The Jordan River) The same faith that caused Israel to safely cross the Jordan at its flood stage releases his power in our lives today when we commit our lives to him in total trust.3. First Fruits (Tel Jericho) As Jericho was God's first gift to the Jews in the land of Israel, we are to devote to him our 'first fruits'--the possessions and talents he has given each of us. Video Two4. Confronting Evil (Tel Beth Shemesh) Unlike Samson, who succumbed to the evils of the Philistine culture, our lives must be distinctive, virtuous, and godly if we are to effectively influence modern society.5. Iron of Culture (Tel Azekah) Like David, who used the Philistines' weapon-making techniques for Israel's advantage, we must employ cutting-edge technology to positively shape our culture.
