(This week I invite you to read Philippians 2:1-13 daily with me.)If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same...

. . . striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. Philippians 1:27b-28 Christians are not to look to suffer, but St. Paul...

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Philippians 1:27 How am I to live a life worthy of the gospel? What is my first step? My mind first goes to the 10 Commandments and things I can change to be a better person, but Jesus would have my first thought...

God Redefines Death

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21 St. Paul was not a morbid person. He fought to live, but he was not afraid to die. As Christians we come to trust our lives to God—and also death. When Jesus died on the cross, he took away the sting of death for us. But if...

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:2 It is common to begin a letter writing, “Dear” so and so. In Paul’s world it was common for Gentiles to say, “Joy to you . . .” and Jewish letters to begin with, “Peace to...

Joy in Jail

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear. Philippians 1:14 St. Paul was arrested for sharing the good news of Jesus. Once in jail it seemed as if he kept preaching, only to fellow prisoners...

Love is More Than a Feeling

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

    (Join me reading Phil. 1:1-18 this week.)This is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that...
