  • Rejoicing In The Lord

    Contributed by Rodelio Mallari on Dec 31, 2010
    based on 14 ratings

    May we thank God for the joy we could have even in a troubled world. May we rejoice in His promise of future joy with Jesus. May we indeed realize what Nehemiah said, “the joy of the Lord is our strength!” (Neh. 8:10). May we ever rejoice daily and consci

    Intro: Can you read the newspaper or listen to the news and rejoice? (Sample typical news) Discouraging isn’t it? Only a true Christian can rejoice due to his special joy in the Lord (Phil. 4:4). Even after reading and hearing of bad news, we can still “rejoice in the Lord” because we have also more

  • Worthless, Worthless Garbage

    Contributed by Steven Simala Grant on Feb 8, 2011

    To be transformed by God is to show that everything that everything else we have pursued so intensely in life amount to no more than "a pile of dung."

    Worthless, Worthless Garbage Phil 3:1-11 Feb 6, 2011 Intro: How many of you know what this is: I’ll give you a hint: it is the world’s third most valuable commodity, after sugar and coffee. I’ll give you another hint – next week is valentines’ day and more

  • Taking Inventory Series

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Mar 4, 2010

    Paul's culture and ours are simular. Likemindeness that Christ provides gives a church the ability to make a difference. It comes down to a spiritual inventory.

    A matter of the heart – Taking Inventory - This week we are looking at another portion of Philippians. The overall theme of this book is an expression of what Paul believes that Christians should be no matter what a person’s or nations physical situation. We know from the letter more

  • 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

  • Our Calling For Tomorrow

    Contributed by Dr. Jerry N. Watts on Jan 2, 2012

    The USA culture is in trouble - and the reason is, for the most part, the church culture in the USA is in trouble. The calling for followers of Christ and the Church of Christ is to show Jesus so the world can KNOW Jesus. This message speaks to our call

    Our Calling for Tomorrow Philippians 3:1-15 * Over the past couple of weeks I have digested large portion of written material by a 20th century preacher/prophet/revivalist named Leonard Ravenhill. He was indeed a man, the likes of which we have not seen in many years. Witnesses say that when he more

  • Knowing Him

    Contributed by David Parks on Aug 6, 2013

    It's know enough to know about him. It's all about knowing Him.

    KNOWING HIM Text: Philippians 3:1-10 Introduction 1. We live in hard times – 2. But none of it compares to what the great men and women of God endured for God. Hebrews 11:36-38 36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, they were more

  • The Joy Of Humility Series

    Contributed by Billy Ricks on Aug 7, 2013

    Paul reminds us there is one reason to be glad, the grace, mercy, and forgiveness purchased by Jesus Christ. He is also calling us to beware. The devil steals, kills, and tries to destroy joy. Be glad about Jesus beware of the joy stealers.

    Intro: Alien cover ups, Kennedy conspiracy, Kardashians, Kanye, Beyoncé and royal babies. What we discover is that our world is full of people with itching ears for something new, something they have never heard before. It amazes me that people seem to come to conferences, classes and revivals more

  • To Do Or To Be

    Contributed by Rick Gillespie- Mobley on Apr 24, 2001
    based on 10 ratings

    This sermon deals with the characteristics of a Christian based on Paul’s life in Philippians 3:1-11.

    "To Do Or To Be" 7/28/95 Text Philip3:1-11 OT Prov. 2:1-8 Matthew 7:13-27 For the Christian, "to be or not to be", isn’t the question, but rather "to do or to be is" the issue that we face. More times than not we opt for doing rather than being. Many people don’t more

    How joy in the Lord provides internal protection to keep us safe, and is really close at hand and is the way of the Kingdom of God.

    Joy: Don’t Leave Home Without it “Finally, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is not troublesome to me, and for you it is a safeguard.” Philippians 3:1 (NRSV) Rejoice in the Lord - as a safeguard - illus. safety belt. A. Internal Protection more

    based on 67 ratings

    Pursuing the goal with Paul

    LAST TIME WE WERE LOOKING AT THE SUBJECT OF …PURSUING THE GOAL .. OR … REACHING FOR THE PRIZE…..IN PHIL. 3:12 – 16 12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13Brethren, I more

  • Following Hard After God Series

    Contributed by Tyrone Garay on Dec 21, 2000
    based on 56 ratings

    The intense desire we are to have in following God and our desire to know Him

    Knowing God Following Hard After God Introduction: Matt 13:44-46 44 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant more

  • Watch Them Dogs

    Contributed by Ken Harris on Jan 22, 2001
    based on 84 ratings

    The purpose of this sermon is to move the hearers to LOOK-OUT for religious leaders (which are spiritually blind, greedy, and lazy) that will attempt to turn them against the principles and teachings of Jesus Christ through their WORDS AND ACTIONS.

    U.S. Army Chaplain (MAJ) Ken Harris Fort Stewart, Georgia References: Acts 21:40 (ex. Of Paul’s ability to address folk in the Hebrew Tongue/Language); Ezekiel 33:2; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Chr. 12:32 (ex. Of the prophets understanding what Israel ought to do); Romans 8:26-27 (… the spirit enabling more

  • Paul's Spiritual Autobiography

    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on Apr 7, 2001
    based on 104 ratings

    Paul frankly discloses his spiritual balance sheet in terms of What he Renounced and What he Received in converting to Christianity, and looking back 30 years later, What he once Counted and What he still Counts.

    PAUL’S SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY Nothing fascinates me more than a good biography. Perhaps, like me, you’re curious to know the motives that are behind the person’s actions and to learn how his character develops. It’s all the more interesting when a great man or woman write their own life story - more
