NewLSFB535: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Philippians 1 and 2

Chapter one has one of my favorite promises. It’s a promise I rely on when I’m not happy with my progress as a believer. I’ve told you before that I sometimes have a problem with anger or forgiveness. No, don’t worry. I don’t get violently angry or anything like that, but I sometimes do have…

NewLSFB534: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 36-38

In the last chapter we read, chapter 38, Jeremiah gave King Zedekiah some great advice. He told him, “Please obey the Lord by doing what I have been telling you. Then all will go well with you….” I wonder how many Christians are living lives that they could say, “All is well with me”. How…

NewLSFB533: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Ephesians 4-6

In chapter six, Paul mentioned that we are in a battle against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. Sometimes it looks as if we are battling people, but the fight is deeper than that. We are in a spiritual battle….

NewLSFB532: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 33-35

The Lord had Jeremiah invite the Rechabites in for a little social activity, and He told Jeremiah to provide wine to them. When it was offered to them, they declined, saying that their ancestor Jonadab told them not to ever drink wine. In addition, they weren’t to build houses, plant crops or build houses to…

NewLSFB531: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 31 and 32

Almost all of the prophesies that Jeremiah has delivered until these two chapters were fulfilled long ago. But as you listened to chapters 31 and 32 today, you probably heard some things that made you say, “I don’t think that has happened yet.” And you would be right. God gave Jeremiah prophecies of the New…

NewLSFB530: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Ephesians 1-3

I don’t know about your upbringing, how your parents and extended family and others around you treated you, but I’ve been around long enough to know that when a child is taught from his earliest years that he is really something special, that child begins to believe that he really is above everyone else. He…

NewLSFB529: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 28-30

In chapter 29, God told Jeremiah to send a letter to those people who had been taken into captivity by Nebuchadnezzar into Babylon. In essence, God told the people to settle in because they were going to be there for a while. Seventy years to be exact. He told them to go ahead and build…

NewLSFB528: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Galatians 4-6

In chapter 5, Paul said, “A little yeast can change a whole batch of dough…” That sentence might seem a little out of place. Why is it there? What does it mean? Let’s put it in context, shall we? Paul is talking to the Galatians about the fact that they had become influenced by someone…

NewLSFB527: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 25-27

I’m sure you noticed that God chose the evil king Nebuchadnezzar as his tool to bring judgment on His chosen people. Does that seem strange to you that God would use someone like that? Doesn’t God look for righteous people to accomplish His plan? Not always. He is God, and all people are His creation,…

NewLSFB526: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Jeremiah 22-24

Let’s talk for just a few seconds about the figs. God had sent the the people of Judah out of their land into the land of the Babylonians as punishment. These were the good figs. And God promised to watch over them for their good. This was like a loving father who, when he sees…
