Nothing More Valuable

How do we advance in the Gospel personally? How do we advance the Gospel around the world? We read about Paul advancing the Gospel in his letter to the Philippians. Paul has recognized there’s nothing more important in life than knowing Jesus and nothing more satisfying than sharing the love of Christ. Even though Paul was in jail Paul knew this wasn’t stopping the spread of the Gospel. It only served to spread the Gospel and made many bold in their proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The Fruit of Righteousness

We’ve been talking about the Philippians partnering with Paul in the proclamation of the Gospel. We see that theme through the book of the Philippians and we also see the advancing of the Gospel in our lives. “filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:11 Through the letter we see that God is at work in us to do his good pleasure.

Fear Not

I found the most popular Scripture passage downloaded in 2019 on the Bible app and it was Philippians 4:6-7 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”. In 2020 it was Isaiah 41:10 “fear not, for I am with you…”
* Thanks for the HBL devotional.
* John 5:24 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life.

Are you Calvinists? * Check out our latest YouTube video * Is it appropriate to pray for God’s judgment upon those who do wrong?

Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 27

Freedom is what we get when we couple forgiveness and life. Our sins have been forgiven and we’ve been made alive together with Christ and he has given his life to us. That’s the gift we have been given. God’s goal for us is freedom and that story is really foreshadowed for us in the story of the nation of Israel.

The Privilege of Knowing Jesus

“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.” Philippians 3:7 When Paul met Jesus, Paul let go of everything else for the privilege of knowing Jesus Christ. This is about a personal relationship with Christ. It’s what the whole thing is about.

God is Love

“No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.” John 1:18 Jesus came to make the Father known to us. The enemy has been sewing false ideas about God since the beginning. However the truth about God is revealed in Jesus. God is love.

Founder and Perfecter

Truth and Error

How do we discern truth and error? We are gullible people and have a tendency to believe those who have slick messages and skilled manipulation. Don’t be swayed by these messages. Go into the Word of God to see if what you hear aligns with God’s word. 1 John 4 cautions us to not believe every message but to test the message you hear to see if it is from God. God brings a pure, simple, profound message. Don’t be deceived by a false message but rely on the Word of God to reveal truth to you.

1 John 4
