As we continue our verse-by-verse study through the Book of Philippians, we're in Chapter 3, with a focus on relying on God's grace not our own works, living for heaven, and knowing God personally.

We talk about weeping for the lost, praying earnestly for people who need Jesus, and aiming our children as ARROWS for God. In this lesson, we focus on a 3rd part of an arrow, the SHAFT (which needs to be straight and solid), representing the solid WORD OF GOD.

Two key verses from Philippians 3:

  • "I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord..."  (verse 8) and
  • "that I may gain Christ and be found in Him..." (verse 9).

In today's episode, we're continuing our verse-by-verse Bible study going through the Book of Philippians, in Chapter 2, verses 1-30. We talk about the surrendered life of Jesus, coming to earth and going to the CROSS out of love for this world, and raising our children to follow His example.

Key thoughts include the power of the Name of Jesus (and teaching our kids to pray "in Jesus' Name"), living lives with self-sacrifice and total surrender to God, obeying God when no one is looking, and as a mission-minded family, the importance of honoring those who have sacrificed for the sake of the Gospel.

We also look at the 2nd part of the ARROW, the 3-vein "fletching," which allows the arrow to spin in flight with accuracy and stability -- representing the importance of training our children to have a personal living and vibrant relationship with our God (the Trinity): God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under th earth, and that every tongue shold confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." --Philippians 2:10-11

"Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." --Philippians 1:12-13

Jul 2, 2018

In today's episode, we're beginning a brand-new Bible study, starting verse-by-verse through the Book of Philippians, Chapter 1, verses 1-30. Key thoughts include being "BONDSERVANTS" of Christ and "SAINTS" (verse 1), living by God's GRACE (verses 2 and 6), and living everyday for God's GLORY (verse 11). Special focus is also about living with NO FEAR, and raising our children to be ARROWS for God.

"Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ." ---Philippians 1:6

Today's lesson continues our series about how to have an "EPIC" New Year. "E" stands for being EMPOWERED everyday by God's Holy Spirit, and that begins by totally surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ.

Much of today's lesson comes from one of our ROCK SOLID Discipleship Course lessons, all about "How do I LIVE for God? And how do I share my faith?" We're talking about the importance of living with total SURRENDER to Jesus, making Him the LORD of every area, and the importance of our personal testimony.
