Philippians 4:2-7 - The Peace of God!

Hi, Gang... 

Have you ever been involved in a work project at church, and either witnessed, or been a part of a disagreement about how the job could “best be done?” Then you’ll appreciate Paul’s comments regarding a “beef” that had occurred at the Church at Philippi. His response is to explain to us that since we have all been yoked together, it is imperative that we “agree in Christ” so that we might get to the important work at hand...the presentation of the Gospel! There it is again. Paul’s great contention about the importance of the Church working together in unity to promote the soul-saving gospel. It is of an immensely more importance than our personal needs. We cover this and also the great JOY we have in Christ.

Philippians – Citizens of Heaven

Hey Gang,

Once again this world that we live in has broken my heart. The latest round of terrorism in the Israel has really shaken me to the core. Perhaps what bugs me the most is when I try to imagine scenarios in my head that would solve the complex problems of the world. The answers I come up with are at best juvenile fantasies, and at worst are so violent and hateful that I have to repent to God for even thinking such things. Which is why I was so excited to see what verses we would be covering from Philippians this time.

If you didn’t know already, I have traveled fairly extensively all over this planet, and have always had the easiest of entrances into foreign countries because I carry with me a passport from the USA. It is like the golden ticket to being welcomed somewhere. Therefore I always keep close tabs on my passport at all times and guard it very carefully. But there are many other times when I find myself disappointed with the state of the world, and simply being an American is nowhere near satisfactory. That is why when I read this verse from Philippians today I wanted to jump out of my chair and shout for joy!

"But our citizenship is in heaven" (Phil 3:20).

Hallelujah! This world is not our home, we’re only passing through! And our leader is not an elected official but the all powerful, sovereign, mighty, just, and loving Creator of the Universe. He is the King of Kings, and I am a citizen of His Kingdom first and foremost, now and forever. Amen!

Philippians – Joy

Click or tap the image to view video

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!
