Pastor Dain - Philippians 2:19-30 - What's My Calling?

We cover Philippians 2:19-30. We have fun looking at the lives of two other solid Christians who were with Paul in Rome. In fact, it dawned on me that Paul’s comments (and great appreciation) about Timothy were likely written down by Timothy himself! Paul is a genius. And we get into the important question, "What's my calling from God?"

Philippians 2:12-18 - Salvation by works? And more... 

Hey Gang,

We take a look at Paul's letter, covering how we interact with God and with each other during our time here on earth, plus other fascinating topics including the sanctification process, and then a simple, easy command from Paul: Do all things without complaint or argument. Piece of cake right?!

Philippians 2:6-11 - Paul's Poem

Hey Gang, 

Today as I studied the unique relationship between God the Father and God the Son, with all the mutual glorification going on…I felt a bit overwhelmed. Verses like this one: "Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will glorify the Son in Himself, and will glorify Him at once" almost started to feel like tongue twisters, and my brain was getting foggy trying to sort it all out.

And yet, perhaps in the light of the fact that this past weekend was a very special one to me because of a wedding, it caused me to see all of our relationships with each other in the context of Jesus’ relationship with His father. If we could even come close to their attitude…what a different world we could have! And indeed, this is the point Paul seems to be making.

We try and sort it all out as we examine the epic poem of Phil 2:6-11.

In the meantime, if you want to get your “egghead” on, check out this fascinating scientific defense of the Biblical Judeo/Christianity by the renowned scientist John Lennox at a conference of faith at Oxford. It’s only about 15 minutes, but keep your finger on the pause button because you will have to stop and digest every few minutes: https://youtu.be/VrIvwPConv0
