7 THINGS GOD DIDN’T SAY ABOUT MONEY: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 6

Religious people are unfortunately very good at putting words in God's mouth in some cases, saying that He said things that cannot be found in Scripture.  Prepare to have some sacred cows toppled regarding your concept of money.  And prepare to have your mind broadened about God's desire to bless His people. 



WHY MONEY MATTERS: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 4

From Genesis all the way through the New Testament, money and how a person thinks about it and handles it represented a test of the heart.  Therefore, if we want to walk in God's abundance and eat the good of the land, we have to get the money thing straight.  It all starts with the concepts discussed in this teaching.  



MYLON LE FEVRE: We Walk by Faith, Not by Sight

Drawing from 2 Corinthians 5:7 where it says we walk by faith and not by sight, former Grammy Award winning Christian rock artist turned Bible teacher, Mylon Le Fevre, and his wife Christi visited and ministered at BLF, and taught what walking by faith really looks like.   



THE RIPPLE EFFECT: Eating the Good of the Land, pt. 3

God's eternal desire for His people is to see them blessed.  But we are often our own worst enemies.  We so often act independently of God, seeking our own benefit and our own pleasures, and then we pay the price later on.  But God's heart has always been that we obey Him and reap the benefits.  This teaching provides three questions we can be asking ourselves that are related to how to position ourselves for eating the good of the land, and insight on the ripple effect that God intends our lives to have on others.  



Eating the Good of the Land

There are so many people in our world today who are so broken, and so many lives that are dysfunctional.  They have rejected the way of truth, and are now paying the price.  Even many Christians live with a vague sense of dissatsifaction and feelings of unfulfillment in their walks with Christ, and don't know why.  They are not experiencing God's best.  But Isaiah says that those who are willing and obedient will eat the good of the land.  This teaching kicks off the new series by addressing the disconnect between what God desires for His people and what many people are actually experiencing by the choices they have made.  This teaching also features a brief part of Pastor Andy's testimony.

Pam Hull gives her Testimony

BLF member and founder of Iron Aprons Women's Ministry, Pam Hull, takes the podium on this Sunday to provide an extended version of her testimony -- a glimpse into a once very troubled and broken life that God transformed into something beautiful and productive; a life that is now touching the lives of many others.  



FINISHING STRONG: Faith, the Next Level pt. 10

It has been said that strength is the product of struggle, and if you want to finish strong rather than fizzling out at the end of your life, you will need to embrace this universal truth.  Like the Apostle Paul when he wrote that he buffetted his body and made it his slave, we will have to inject energy into our spiritual lives if we want to continue to progress and fulfill God's will for our lives.  This teaching will show you not only what to watch out for in preventing being pulled off course, but also what steps to take to hit the tape at the finish line of your life still running at full steam.  



QUALIFYING FOR PROMOTION: Faith, the Next Level, pt. 9

Christian singer and songwriter, Lincoln Brewster, who provides an object lesson for this teaching, is one of the best modern day examples of God's method of qualifying His people for promotion.  A former lead guitarist for secular artist, Steve Perry (formerly of the rock group, Journey), Brewster had to undergo a wilderness pilgrimage, so to speak, after getting saved before God could use him in the way he's being used today.  The Scriptures tell us that we should consider it all joy when we encounter similar kinds of various trials, because the testing of our faith produces endurance (James 1:2-4).  But many people refuse to submit to God's refining process, not understanding that He has in mind to promote those who withstand that process so He can use them on a larger scale.  This teaching may answer some questions and produce some "aha" moments for people who have questioned why things have happened the way they have.  



HONORING YOUR SERVICE: Faith, The Next Level pt. 8

In one of the longest teachings ever delivered at BLF, this message is packed with life-changing information for those who have ears to hear.  In an era where personal comforts and conveniences rule the day even in the church, this teaching is like a bucket of cold water on a sleeping person, providing perspective on what Christian service really looks like, and how eternal rewards and loss of reward hang in the balance.
