Christ Is The Answer – How Are You Traveling?

      20000709 Christ Is The Answer - How Are You Traveling - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

It is #vacation time again.  Will you be #hiking, #driving, or maybe #flying?  Which road will you take to get there?  The Bible has a lot to say about our journey through this life.  It says there are two distinct paths.  One is wide and winding and the other is straight but narrow.  Are people aware of which path they are traveling?  Are you aware?  Let’s say you are on the right path, are you aware that there are different ways to travel this road?  In this passage, Paul is warning the Corinthians about carnal Christianity.  They are saved but not growing and not living up to their potential.  How can we move up in our Christian walk away from carnality toward Christ mindedness?

The Ministry of Christmas

      20071230 Analyzing The Annunciation - The Ministry Of Christmas - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

#Fear not.  The #Bible says that enough times that you could read it once a day for a year every where it occurs and just get through them all.  The #angel said it to Mary when he told her that she would bear the Savior, Jesus.  Can you imagine?  Your people have been waiting since the beginning for a messiah to save them and you have just been told that you are going to be a part of that story.  What kind of peace was given to Mary that is available to us?  Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man which was only possible through the virgin birth.  What do Mary’s reactions to this message show us about how we should react to God’s Word?  If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, what should we do with this information?  What does it mean to exalt the name of Jesus?  And how can we extend the fame of Jesus?

The Message of Christmas

      20071125 The Message Of Christmas - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

This month, we are going to break from our series on Mosaics of the Master and focus on the message of #Christmas.  Everybody gets excited about Christmas this time of year, but if it is for the wrong reason there can be a big let down when it is all over.  Here, Brother Tommy focuses on the message given to Mary about the miraculous baby she is to birth.  Did Mary do anything special to be chosen to deliver the Savior of the World?  Are Christ followers saved by anything that they have done?  Have you ever received a gift greater than you deserved?  How does a perfect God reconcile sinful man?  What is grace?  How does it lead to peace with God and with others?

The Joy of Jesus – Serenity In Your Contemplation – Greeting By Provision – Grace

      20060723 Joy Of Jesus - Serenity In Your Contemplation - Greeting By Provision - Grace - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  Who said that?  Was it #Mohammed, #Buddha,  #Krishna or #JesusChrist?  Jesus made that bold claim in John 14:6 and as God’s son he is able to back it up.  He is also uniquely qualified to work in our lives to bring us joy, real joy.  Paul closes his letter to the Christians at Philippi by wishing God’s grace upon them.  What is grace?  Can we earn it through good works or behavior?  What are the means of grace?  What are the types of grace?  Who is our source of God’s grace?

#Want and #need, do you know the difference?  If you put the wrong emphasis on verses like this you wind up with what is called a #prosperityGospel.  Like we talked about last week, the motive matters.  We don’t give to receive, we give to honor God and as a result we receive all our needs.  Have you ever prayed to God for a thing you thought you needed only to realize later that it was really a want?  Are all of our needs good things?  Do we sometimes need correction?  What does it mean when the Bible says ‘according to His riches in glory?’  Well, I haven’t met or heard of a rich man yet who can afford to create a planet full of biodiversity much less a universe.  Oh and don’t forget the qualifier at the end that Paul loves to use – in Christ.

The Joy of Jesus – Triumphant Serving – As Expressed – By Readiness To Go

      20050911 Triumphant Serving - As Experienced - By Readiness To Go - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

If you are under #quarantine or #lockdown right now, you are probably ready to go.  But, if you are a follower of Christ, how should you go?  Take the example of Timothy in Philippians and use it as a model.  Ask yourself if you are doing God’s will.  Are you ready to go despite the cost?  Are you living for Christ or yourself?  How should we emulate the working relationship between Paul and Timothy?  How do you handle the ‘wait and see’ time?

Are you in #quarantine or #selfisolation?  There’s plenty of archived messages on our website to keep you busy for some time.  Today, we hear part one of Paul’s letter to the Philippians about profit or gain from his jail cell.  Talk about isolated.  Last week, we heard about all the things Paul did to be righteous counted for nothing and became a loss.  What did he find that was and for us is profitable?  Have you lost anything to gain knowledge of Jesus Christ?  Is there anything in your life that you would not lose to get more knowledge of the Lord and Savior?  Guess what that’s called?  An idol.  What kind of robe can we receive by trading in our fig leaf?  How deep can our knowledge of Christ become?  What are we to do with that knowledge once we’ve received it?  What can we gain by rearranging our priorities this way?

Have you ever had a #boss who would stop what they were doing to accomplish one of the many things they asked you to do?  It is at first, embarrassing.  But, then you catch on to what their priorities are.  And, if you are wise, you make it your priority.  How much more so, should we copy Jesus Christ, being God and coming down to our level and showing us what to do?  Those of us who are in Christ, should constantly strive to be more like our Lord and Savior.  That means humbling ourselves and serving others.  Where and who was Jesus before He came here?  Why and how did Christ come down to us?  Jesus Christ was perfectly obedient His whole life.  To where did that obedience lead?
