A Prayer for Love in Action – Part 2

In this message we enter into our second study of the Apostle Paul’s prayer for the Philippian believers. As we do, our focus has been on the man praying. What made Paul the prayer warrior he was? What moves his heart and shapes his life? Last message, we saw a man who was Christ-centered, Christ-controlled, and Christ-consumed. We will now look into the heart of Paul in his love for the Philippian believers; a love that always leads to praying for others effectively and affectionately.

A Prayer for Love in Action – Part 1

This message continues our journey through the prison prayers of the Apostle Paul by beginning an exploration of Paul’s prayer for the Philippian believers. This prayer is actually an application of knowing Christ’s love from the prayer of Ephesians 3:14-19. In addition, this prayer shows us the mark of genuine love for others; interceding for them with clear purpose and affection. Paul is instructing the Philippian believers and us to put into greater action the love of Christ they are already experiencing.

Model of a Holy Life: Our Lord Jesus – Part 4

In this message we continue looking at the Lord Jesus Christ as the model of our holiness and specifically, beholding Him in His death on the cross. The cross is central to our faith, not only theologically, but it has personal application toward a life of Christ-conforming holiness. This is the fourth part of a multi-part message on how Jesus models holiness. 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.

Model of a Holy Life: Our Lord Jesus – Part 3

In this message, Pastor Jim continues looking at the Lord Jesus Christ as the model of our holiness and specifically, beholding Him in His obedient servant life. This is the third part of a multi-part message on how Jesus models holiness. 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.

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.
