When God works in us, we work better

Another profound statement from Paul for us to consider a while.  Work out that salvation within you for it is God working in you to desire and do according to His good pleasure.  We all could use a good workout, especially of our spiritual life in Christ.  An evidence of His Spirit in us is the desire to work towards being more like Christ.

Also included is one more graduate being honored.  We are thankful and love this generation of young people.

To Live is Christ and to Die is Gain

The apostle Paul inspired generations of Christ-followers with his simple but profound life-statement, “for to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” We examine that statement here in Philippians to challenge ourselves to pursue that ideal with all our being as Paul had found satisfying in his day.

It is also a touching time of year as some of our kids (who have been clandestinely growing up) are hitting the milestone of high school graduation.   We included some audio as we honor two of our guys transitioning to adulthood.  We are indeed blessed with these and many other fine young people.

Working Together for the Next Generation

The message this week is fast and brief.  We were blessed to hear Bro. Jay Norton from the Gideons International share about the power of God’s Word to transform lives and their ministry to get the Word of God there.  We are thankful to help support that mission, both local and global. 

Sorry, but the audio does not contain Bro. Jay but only contains Bro. Brad briefly sharing the importance of investing our lives to knowing God through His Word and sharing Him to the Next Generation.  In the audio, we left in a prayer from Mason if you can hear it.  He’s a blessing to our church.  And it’s a little reminder why you may not hear the entire Sunday morning worship service.  Brad is recording the audio with his phone in his shirt pocket.

Prayer of Thanks for his friends

Tough and passionate, yet the apostle Paul stopped to write thank you notes to those wonderful friends who financially supported his ministry.  And we benefit from that gratitude with the wonderful letter to the church in Philippi.  We take a Sunday to appreciate his gratitude and learn more about prayers of thanksgiving.
