  • Rejoicing Over Bad Things?

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Mar 17, 2019

    "Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right." Who in his right mind rejoices at wrong?

    Second Sunday of Lent 2019 One of the great themes of Christian literature, both in and out of the Scriptures, is the need for each of us to make a deliberate choice between the Two Ways of living. There is the way of life and the way of death, the way of following God’s will and law, or the way more

  • Five Secrets For Winners – Philippians 3:12-21 Series

    Contributed by Scott Turansky on Apr 2, 2022

    We need to stop and remind ourselves of who we are: Believers in Jesus who are serving him in a marathon, not a sprint, toward his kingdom. Therefore, let us never forget, or even minimize, who were are or what our “upward call” is.

    Paul the apostle must have been a sports fan. I say that because he uses a lot of terminology in the scriptures related to sports. He says – We don't wrestle with just flesh and blood. That's a wrestling illustration. He says – We fight the good fight. That's a boxing illustration. But more

  • The Joy Of Believing

    Contributed by Christopher Young on Mar 29, 2010

    I believe that there are three different type of people in this world, those who see the glass as ½ empty, those that see it as ½ full, and those who wonder why we're not using bottled water. It always amazes me to think about how we all complain about al

  • Follow Me (1 Of 2)

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Feb 25, 2022

    Paul loved the Philippian people, and he was greatly concerned about them. He told them, "Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample."

    WHY DID PAUL TELL THEM TO FOLLOW HIM? If anyone had examined the life of the apostle Paul, they would have discovered that he was following the Lord Jesus. Paul was giving them a PHYSICAL EXAMPLE or MODEL of what it is to follow Jesus. Someone very wisely said, "Don't follow any leader more

  • Follow Me 2 Of 2

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Feb 25, 2022

    In a previous sermon I preached on the importance of following the right people.

    When Jesus was here on earth He stated on one occasion, "...FOLLOW ME, and I will make you fishers of men." It is interesting that the Bible not only records that He told these men to follow Him, but also it records that they were smart enough to obey. Look at Matt. 4:20, it states, more

  • Longing For Belonging

    Contributed by Mark Opperman on May 6, 2015

    Why am I here? Where do I fit in? What is life all about? Who cares about me? Ultimately, we find these answers in the one who created us. God wants each of us to find a place of belonging in His family.

    Longing for Belonging Philippians 3:17 - 21 17 Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 more

  • Can The Contemporary Church Be Salvaged?

    Contributed by Michael Stark on Feb 22, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    We shall either live as followers of Christ or as enemies of the cross of Christ. There is no in between.

    “Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory more

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Jan 18, 2019

  • A Colony Of Heaven

    Contributed by John White on Aug 17, 2018

    In this passage Paul describes some changes that should mark the life of a believer. He sets the bar of Christian living very high for himself and for all those who profess to follow him as he follows the Lord Jesus Christ.

    A Colony Of Heaven Philippians 3:13-21 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ more

    Learn from Paul, who has accomplished great things for God, these four keys to a successful life: (1) face your faults, (2) forget the former, (3) focus on the future, and (4) fight to the finish.

    We are going to look at Paul again this morning, and learn about success in life. • The best way to learn something is to learn it from real life, not from books, from models not from manuals. • I want to look at someone who has accomplished what I want to accomplish. • So we are going to look more
