Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Thought of the day—

The Apostle Paul said of Jesus, ‘He emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant.’ There is a significant difference between doing service for the Lord Jesus and being a servant of the Lord Jesus. The former is an act of finite time and may easily fit into our already crafted weekly planners. This is a false understanding of Christ’s call to a person and does not shape our lives. It simply fits into our lives. The latter, being a servant of the Lord, shapes all we do in life and defines Biblical Christianity. As a servant of the Lord, we know all of life is service to Him – our vocations, our relationships, our parenting, our marriages, our activities, our passions, our desires, our resources, and everything else we have and are. Yes, the call of Christ is a call to servanthood, not service. It will include service, but it is primarily about death to self and a relinquishing of total control over our lives by living it under His complete Lordship (Philippians 2:7).

The Apostle Paul’s Prayer for Experiential Christianity – Part 11

In this message Pastor Jim continues our study in the Prison Prayers of the Apostle Paul. This prayer contains two petitions and the second one is what defines the Christian life and experience – to know the love of Christ in its breadth, length, height, and depth. Should we pray and God answer this prayer, it will be the very essence of a revived church and Christian.

Model of a Holy Life: Our Lord Jesus – Part 2

The chief aim in the life of a Christian is to glorify God by conforming more and more into His image and that of being holy. And our holiness is not measured by conduct foremost but by looking to our God who is holy, holy, holy. In this message Pastor Jim continues to look at the Lord Jesus Christ as the model of our holiness; through the glory of his incarnation. It is by beholding Him, we not only see holiness for what it truly is but are conformed more and more into His image by this beholding.
