Gaining Christ (Philippians 3:4-9)

There were certain things that were once “gain” to Paul. The list he gives in verses 5-6 explaining His Jewish heritage and religious efforts can be considered his spiritual resumé. They were all the things that he had by birth and by his own efforts that gave him confidence that he belonged to God....

Gospel Proclamation (1 Corinthians 1:23-24, 2:1-2)

The Scriptures give us examples both of those who sought to honor God by doing things His way, and of those who refused to listen to Him or do things according to His instruction. Nadab and Abihu are an example of ignoring the mandate of God’s word, choosing to do things in a way that “He had not commanded” (Lev 10:1-3). As a result, they were consumed by fire becaus...

Sufficiency of Scripture (Acts 17)

Though Paul still has fresh wounds from his previous beating in Philippi, he is willing, after traveling 100 miles, to face potential hostile hearers once again. He doesn’t change his method at all, but continues to argue from the Scriptures, just as he’s always done. He knew nothing else; no other way to give people what they needed....

A Classic Conversion (Acts 15:30-16:24)

Paul’s first missionary journey initiated several new churches throughout the region. Paul’s heart, however, is not just concerned with seeing new churches begin, but he also desired to see the new converts growing and maturing within those churches. No special guidance drove Paul’s desire, other than a general pastoral desire and duty. God had made it abundantly cle...

How to Obey (Philippians 2:12-16)

To “work out” our salvation is to take real pains and put forth thorough effort in our obedience to Christ. Salvation can come only through faith in Christ, apart from works, but as those who belong to Christ, we are called to put forth effort in becoming more like Him. When a child is adopted, he doesn’t work in order to belong to the family. ...

Unity Through Christ-like Humility (Philippians 2:1-11)

Paul’s greatest concern in these verses is the unity of the church, calling the Philippians to be “of the same mind… same love… united…intent on one purpose” (v 2). Unity among believers is not a peripheral issue in the church, or merely an added bonus to the Christian life. It is essential, both for the Christian’s growth in Christ, as well as for the witnes...

Christian Council (Acts 15:1-35)

Now that some Gentiles had been converted, certain Jews were wrongly telling them what they needed to do in order to really become members of God’s family. They were claiming that in order for a Gentile to enter the Jewish fold, in order to really be a Christian, he had to comply with all Jewish regulations. In other words, in order to receive the full benefits, you must...

First Missionary Journey (Acts 13:42-14:28)

After Paul’s sermon in the synagogue, many of the Jews were “begging” him to speak to them again the next week. The fact that Paul and Barnabas were “urging them to continue in the grace of God” means that many must have become partakers of grace. The sermon had such an impact that it seemed as though “the whole city” showed up to listen to Paul the following...

A Sending Church & A Saving Christ (Acts 13:1-43)

Mission endeavors and efforts are the responsibility of the church. They are not to be reserved solely for the “mission-minded” or only those who sense a particular calling. All Christians, because they worship God, will be concerned for God’s worship in the world. Worship leads to a real recognition that others should know God, which then drives us to prayer that Go...

The Effective Prayer of the God-man (John 17:6-19)

Jesus says twice that those He’s are praying for are the Father’s (i.e. “they are Yours,” vv. 6, 9). He’s expressing the same idea that the Apostle Paul does in Ephesians 1:4 when he says “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him.” Not only are they chosen of the Father, but they are given to the S...
