Religion, or Jesus Christ?

“I threw away my religious life and gained a relationship with Jesus Christ.”  That may be a surprising testimony to hear from a Christian, but that’s exactly what the apostle Paul was saying in Philippians 3:8.  In this section of his letter, Paul writes, “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of [...]

The Joy that Jesus Has

The Bible tells us in Hebrews 12:2 that Jesus “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”  What does it mean that Jesus endured the cross “for the joy that was set before Him”? Ever since [...]

Joy in Humility

It’s been said that humility is one of those virtues that once you know you have it, you’ve lost it.  It’s like the man who wrote a book and titled it Humility and How I Achieved It.  Being humble is a virtue that’s gone the first time we brag about it. The Bible gives us [...]

Ready for Heaven, but Needed on Earth

What a dilemma to be in -- to want to go to heaven, but to still be needed on earth.  Paul says in Philippians 1:23-24, “I am hard pressed between the two.  My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.  But to remain in the flesh is more necessary [...]

God is the Faithful Gardener

Two years ago my parents gave me some Iris bulbs to plant in an empty patch between some Boxwood bushes at the front of the house.  I planted them in the fall, gave them water, frequently made sure no critters had disturbed them, and waited until spring for them to start pushing their green shoots [...]

Blest Be the Tie

I think we all would agree that relationships are tricky and complicated, even among Christians.  It's easy to let people be the reason that our joy is diminished.  That’s why we need Jesus Christ to be not just our source of joy, but also the One who links us together in common salvation and a common work [...]

Reclaiming a JOY that Has Been Stolen

We begin the year 2017 with a new sermon series in the Bible book of Philippians on how to reclaim and secure joy in our life as a Christian.  Join us each Sunday morning for the next few months as we see what God has to teach us about living a life of JOY no matter what happens.
