Like Minded with Christ

Paul’s directions are clear in Philippians 2: Have the same mind as Christ. That sets the bar pretty high. Striving together in one faith, serving others in humility, acting in one accord are all secondary to thinking and acting like Jesus. He humbled himself so that God could lift him up. The goal for believers: do the same.

To Live is Christ

“To Live is Christ, to die is gain.” Well known statement in Philippians 1:21, but what exactly does it mean?

Advance of the Gospel

“All things work together for good” in Romans 8:28 is also a Paul quote. His observations in Philippians 1 is a good example of how that works sometimes.

Intro: Philippians

This is part 1 of a series in Philippians.

Letters were written to individuals and churches for a number of reasons. Who were the Philippians and why was Paul writing to them?

Why the Wise Men?

Advent is the invention of something new or the appearance of something for the first time. The incarnation describes God becoming flesh and walking among us. Epiphany is the celebration of Jesus, the Christ, God incarnate, revealed to the Gentiles. The shepherds were near, the wise men were far off.

And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. -Ephesians 2:17-18

A Real Team Player

Jesus never works alone. From before his birth, through his earthly ministry, the establishment of the New Testament church and beyond Jesus has always been a real team player.

He Is Our Peace

The Old Testament prophets gave Israel a future hope. The Ephesians, like all Gentiles, did not receive the Law and the prophets. When Jesus came, he preached peace to those near and those far.

The Fruit of Faith

The first theme of Advent is hope. The next is faith, specifically the faith of Joseph and Mary as they journeyed to Bethlehem. We’re going to back up to Genesis 15 and start there.

White (Almost) Christmas

I don’t like to mess with the banner image on the website. At different times of the year we change the cover pic on the Facebook page. Back in 2017 we had a rare 4 inch snow in December, while the Christmas wreaths were on the front doors. Ain’t God good like that? Merry Christmas from Plainville.
