Joy in Christ

At the heart of Philippians is the message "Rejoice in the Lord." Philippians chapter three is really a reminder that Jesus is enough. If you have less than Jesus you don't have enough. If you have more than Jesus you have too much. Subscribe in iTunes Subscribe on YouTube

Joy in Loving

It's good to hear a spiritual principle explained, but it's better to see it lived out. That is basically what Phil. 2:1-8 entails. The philosophy of "Joy in Loving" is explained but then Paul adds a face to the teaching in showing them Jesus practicing "Joy in Loving."

The Joy of Serving

In this service, we highlight the special nature of serving as a deacon. In Philippians 1:1, Paul names "deacons" as part of God's plan for the church. In the verses that follow, Paul thanks the Christians for their work and remembers their service in the Lord together, which we connect to "joy."

The Garage

Considering the church is God's household (Eph. 2:19), in the book of Ephesians we might compare Eph. 6 to "The Garage." It's a place to get prepared or geared up to go into the world to face the enemy. Eph. 6:10-24 is like an intelligence briefing for successfully engaging in this conflict.

The Kitchen

In our tour of God’s house from the book of Ephesians we come to the kitchen. If you are a part of a family you know disagreements happen. The best place to settle disagreements is around the kitchen table. Ephesians chapter four is Paul’s appeal for unity. You might call it Paul’s recipe for unity.

The Trophy Room

The six chapters in Ephesians can be compared to rooms in God's house, the church. In Ephesians 3, we compare this to a "trophy room" where something prized or valuable is displayed. In Ephesians, that's the church. We are reminded in this lesson that the church is God's plan to reach the world, amaze the angels and bring glory to God.
