Christian Life Lessons from Baptist Preacher
Rev Wendell


After prayerful consideration, Rev. Wendell Wharton has developed a series of Bible study lessons, which he refers to as "Life Lessons." These Christian life lessons are Bible-based mini-sermons, which explain a Bible verse in a manner that makes it easy to understand. Each of the Life Lessons is composed of three paragraphs.  They each begin with a quote from The Word of God (Proclamation), which is followed by the context from which the Bible quotation was taken( Explanation). They each end with a brief discussion that relates the verse to our current situation today (Application). To God be the glory!!!

The purpose of these Life Lessons, and the inspirational scriptures from which they were taken, is to encourage and challenge each of us to live a more Christian life. They are intended to provide daily devotional, thought-provoking, and inspirational words to live by. They also facilitate a better understanding of God's Holy Word. You can read the Bible lessons by visiting Rev. Wendell's Facebook or Twitter pages, as well as his blog. On his blog site, there is a listing of all the Life Lessons that he has posted since he began this effort in June of 2010. Below is an example of a recently posted Life Lesson:


GOOD INTENTIONS CAN BE MISUNDERSTOOD

Proclamation:

“The Ammonite commanders said to Hanun, ‘Do you think David is honoring your father by sending envoys to you to express sympathy? Haven’t his envoys come to you only to explore and spy out the country and overthrow it?’ So Hanun seized David’s envoys, shaved them, cut off their garments at the buttocks, and sent them away.” 1 Chronicles 19:3-4 (NIV)

This is for "Footprints In The Sand"
(Poem, Author Unknown)
A person walking on the beach with God leaves two sets of footprints in the sand except during the times when God is carrying them.

Explanation:

When Nahash, the king of the Ammonites, died, his son Hanun succeeded him. King David heard that Nahash had died he wanted to show kindness to his son because Nahash had been kind to him. (1 Chronicles 19:1-2) So King David sent a delegation to Hanun to express his sympathy regarding his father’s death. But King Hanun listened to the commanders of his army and treated King David’s envoy as if they were spies. He humiliated them, shaved off half of their hair and beards, and then sent them away naked from the waist down. (1 Chronicles 19:3-4) Then he formed an allegiance with the Syrians, with the Maakahites, and with the Tobites to prepare for war because he felt that he had offended David. (1 Chronicles 19:6-7) These events are also recorded in the tenth chapter of The Bible Book of Second Samuel.

Application:

The way that we speak to God today is through prayer. However, we should be very careful with respect to the things that we pray for and ask The Lord God to give to us. He hears and answers the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:8 and 15:29) The sincere prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. (James 5:16) Jesus, The Christ, said, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22) He told His disciples that everyone who asks will receive, (Luke 11:10) we just need to make sure that what we ask for will give God glory. We will not receive that which is asked for with the wrong motives. (James 4:3) We should not ask for anything bad to befall a child of God and we should not be selfish with our prayer requests. Remember, Job was blessed with twice as much as he had only after he prayed for his friends. (Job 42:10) There is power in prayer.
