01 Jun 05/20/12 The Christian Spiritual Life (Romans 8) (Archive)
BOND Sunday Service, May 20, 2012: Jesse Lee Peterson talks briefly about marriage — one man has trouble with his wife. We then read from Proverbs and Romans 8. The Bible says Christ is our brother. God chooses certain people for a mission; everyone can be born again. We don’t know what good is. No man is good; only God is good. Some people think they do good things, such as to help their mother in financial need. Most of the time, it’s out of guilt or for one’s own ego. In quiet prayer, the Spirit intercedes on our behalf.
Throwback Sunday Services premiere on BOND YouTube channel Wednesdays at 4 PM US Pacific Time (7 PM ET).

Clip (14 mins) – Jesse has people read passages from Psalm 3: 1-12 and Romans 8: 1-30. You should learn to accept correction. Christ made a way for us back to the Father. Some at Church ask: Who are the chosen ones? What about people who never hear about Jesus nor know the Bible?
Clip (10 mins) – Jesse talks about the consciousness, or conscience, that God put in us. No man is good; human nature is evil. But God loves us and is with us. You may not know how to pray, but the Spirit intercedes on our behalf. You can overcome all things. Keep an eye on yourself to realize that you’re no good; take the ego pain, and God will change you. You can get past it.
