What does the Bible say about how Christ followers are to respond in times of #crisis, like right now with the spreading of #Covid19?  Do we wallow and murmur or are we still supposed to be joyful?  How can we accomplish that?  The first step has to do with our tongue or words.  Step two is about refining of what?  Steps one and two are crucial to step three, which is challenging the culture.  What then are we to dispel?  And whom should we spotlight?  These steps are the how but what is the why?  Jesus, Others, Yourself

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?

There is a lot of #profit that has become #loss lately with all of the #quarantine and #marketcrash going on right now due to #covid19.  Paul, in Philippians, encouraged us not to have confidence in the flesh.  Could that be a lesson God is teaching all of us right now?  Paul listed off all the things he counted on before coming to faith in Jesus Christ.  Why were they not enough?  Was it not sufficient to his salvation that he was born into the right family or that he was extremely religious?  What are you counting on instead of, or in addition to Jesus Christ to save your soul?  Is it money, status, reputation, or something else?

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?

This should have posted last week.

Okay, let’s go back to the beginning of this series on the book of Philippians by Brother Tommy.  What is #joy? How does it differ from #happiness?  From where does true joy come?  Jesus was perfect and therefor had perfect joy.  What were Paul’s circumstances when he wrote this book to the church at Philippi?  How does proper joy produce triumph in all situations?  Once we agree that we need it, how do we receive the joy of Jesus?  What are the risks and rewards of obtaining it?  Where does our citizenship lie, and why does that make a difference?  What are the benefits of this Heavenly joy?

Time is short, there is less than two weeks left on the #Christmas #countdown.  And we are on our second of three messages leading up to the anniversary of the Savior’s birth.  Today we hear the story of Mary, a virgin girl chosen by God to deliver the long awaited Messiah.  Typical of the way God works, the events would not unfold the way anybody who knew the prophecies expected.  Interesting fact, the Bible mentions that Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth when Elizabeth was six months into her own pregnancy with John the Baptist.  An ob/gyn friend of mine said that this is the point in a pregnancy when mothers first feel movement of their child.  To what extent do we or should we revere Mary?  What are some of the extra-biblical ideas being taught about her?  What does the Bible say about her?  Mary was favored by God, did that make her life easier?  When presented with overwhelming news about her future, what was Mary’s perfect answer?

Let’s kick off a series of December messages by Brother Tommy from 2001.  Even back then, he was lamenting the #waronChristmas.  This week, he talks about Joseph.  And in the following weeks, we will cover Mary and Jesus.  Can you think of one Christmas song about Joseph?  What role did Joseph play in the birth and life of Jesus?  What was his background and lineage?  What can we assume abut his faith from this test he went through?  What can we learn about how to treat others by watching Joseph’s treatment of Mary?  What can we learn from his faith in God?

Even though #Einstein wasn’t a #Christian, he did breathe new life into the #logic side of the discussion about the existence of #God with his theories about #physics and #dimensions.  But even more important than these scientific boundaries that were expanded, was the work that Christ did in His ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection.  And what did Jesus tell us to do about it?  Why did the Master wait until the end to send His disciples out into the world?  How urgent is the Great Commission?  If Jesus has the power and authority to send His followers out to spread the Gospel, and I believe He proved that He does, will He then share that with those who obey?
