Philippians – Joy

Hey Gang,

have you ever fallen for the old lie that God wants you to be happy? And that if you’re not happy it is probably somebody else’s fault, especially the fault of God, or at the very least the fault of the Church! This is one of the most pervasive lies that brings about such disillusionment with people in the church.

But the Apostle Paul presents a much appealing call for us to be full of JOY. Real, biblical, joy that does not fade with every disappointment life brings us. And to prove it, he wrote a letter to the church at Philippi about the great joy that he possessed--while writing from a prison cell! Trust me, he knew what he was talking about.

For the next several weeks we look on as Paul explains to us why we possess joy in Christ, and how to let that guide our lives.

One of his greatest letters!

Romans 13:8-14

Aloha, Gang!

This time we look at Romans 13:8-14. We start off with the idea that we are on a different team when we come to Christ. So how should we behave on the team? The Apostle Paul gives a list of ideas, chief being to "love for the day is near."

In this short passage, Paul writes of love, obedience, salvation, the deeds of darkness, decent behavior and more. Good stuff!

Romans 15:13-33

Pastor Dain Spore continues with our look at the Book of Romans. This time it's Romans 15:13-33.

Hey, Gang,

Paul reminisces about his travels, and his plans to visit Rome. We get to hear Paul say: “Hey guys, I’m going to come see you when I pass through Rome on my way to Spain!”

Perhaps Paul should have considered Psalm 16:9: "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps."

This ever happen to you? It has me!

Romans 16

Pastor Dain completes his deep dive into the Apostle Paul's great Book of Romans. This time Paul greets the whole gang who love him.

Acts 14

Pastor Dain Spore continues his Chicken Skin Bible series with Acts chapter 14. Wait, Paul and Barnabas are Hermes and Zeus? Well, that's what a whole town thought, and the citizens were ready to worship and sacrifice animals to Paul and Barnabas. Paul ends up half dead, but the Good News of Jesus Christ keeps spreading, even to the pagans. A great chapter about the grace of God.
