Knocking On Death’s Door For Christ: Philippians Series #15

June 28, 2022

Throughout the book of Philippians, as well as other New Testament books, Paul wrote, constantly thinking about others. Paul has devoted himself to the Lord Jesus Christ and the development of deep friendships.  Have you noticed when you read the writings of the Apostle Paul, how many friends he has? Paul not only knew how to win souls, but he knew how to win friends. For example, in Romans 16 there are at least 35 names of people who were friends of Paul. In this chapter, we will study another one of those friends. His name is Epaphroditus. You probably wouldn’t name one of your sons Epaphroditus, but the name…

One Million Timothies

June 17, 2022

In a rather interesting manner, Paul explains to us what joy is really all about in this life. J. O. Y. JOY. If you want to have joy in your life, you put Jesus first. That’s the “J.” Put others second. That’s the “O.” Then, you put yourself last. That’s the “Y.” When you get it in that order, it spells “JOY.” In chapter one, the emphasis is upon the Lord Jesus. As you read that first chapter of Philippians, you will find repeatedly that he comes back to the Lord Jesus Christ. He emphasizes Jesus. He exalts Jesus Christ. Put Jesus first, in your life. Then, LP when you…

Shining Like Stars In The Universe: Philippians Series #14

June 9, 2022

The Bible abounds in figures of speech, that is, beautiful pictures. In these particular verses, the Bible provides us with lovely images describing the Christian life and what the Christian life encompasses. In our scriptural passage for this chapter, there are many beautiful figures of speech and pictures about the Christian life. In Philippians 2:15, we learn that we are the sons of God. The Christian life is pictured as being a child in God’s family. When you are born again, you become a member of the family of God. In Philippines 2:17, the Christian life is compared to a sacrifice on the altar. In Romans 12:1, we read, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by…

The Inside Job: Philippians Series #13

June 2, 2022

This chapter is focused on humility of life and living a life for others. In Philippians 2:8, Paul states, “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death: death on a cross.” The keyword is the word “obedience.” Jesus obeyed, and the Bible teaches we are to obey. Disobedience is a cause of a great deal of sorrow. The Bible tells us about Adam in Romans 5, “For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.” The Bible tells us that we are…

Others: Philippians #12

May 19, 2022

William Booth was the founder of the Salvation Army. When he became old, they were holding a convocation in the Salvation Army, and William Booth could not attend. So, they said, “Will you send us a word of encouragement? Will you send us a telegram that we can read to the entire convocation?” When the telegram arrived, it had on it one word. The word that William Booth placed on that telegram to be read before the Salvation Army: “Others.” In Philippians 2:1-4, we read: Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make…

The Paradigms of a Prisoner: Philippians Series #11

May 10, 2022

For millions of people, there is a pessimism about life and its meaning. We read in the Bible about those who wasted their lives with riotous living. How refreshing, to turn to a positive statement from someone who has found real meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in life. In Philippians 1:21, the Apostle Paul gives his amazing philosophy of life. He shows us life’s grandest paradigms, by which we view our life. Do you remember when you were in high school English class, and you were asked to write your philosophy of life? Paul figured out his personal philosophy of life and lived it until he could say, “I have finished…

According to God’s Riches In Glory: Philippians Series #10

May 3, 2022

These final words of Paul, to his beloved Philippian church, form a thank you to them for the gift that they had sent to him. The church at Philippi was greatly loved by the Apostle Paul. I think it is possible to build a case that this was his favorite church of all the churches he established. In Philippians 1:3, Paul said, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” They were a source of constant gratitude and thanksgiving. Then, in chapter 4:1, he says “My brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown.” The Apostle Paul is writing to this favorite church, this greatly loved people…

The Mental Makeover: Philippian Series #9

April 26, 2022

We are going to have a check-up from the neck up and discover how to get our thinking and minds right. So many of us need a spiritual formula to deal with depression; to deal with anger; to deal with resentment; to deal with self-pity, worry, and fear. The passage that we study in this chapter is written from a slimy prison; but, as you read it, you’d think he’s writing from a luxurious hotel. You almost expect him to say, at the end, “I wish you were here.” He’s in the Mamertine Prison. What does that have to do with you? Well, there’s more than one kind of prison….

The Great Exchange: Philippians Series #8

April 19, 2022

We read in Philippians 3:1-9: Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he have whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews;…
