     | 11,863 views

    In this sermon, we consider Paul's confidence, conviction and conflict that gave him someone to live and die for.

    Introduction: A. Life can often be complicated and confusing! – How is that for an understatement? 1. In his famous “Peanuts” cartoon, Charles Shultz marvelously captured that reality of life. 2. In one cartoon, Lucy was front and center, delivering one of her characteristic lectures. 3. She ...read more

    Happiness is a choice. If you do not have it, it is no one else’s fault. It is because you have chosen otherwise. Arrange your priorities and choose the things that really matter.

    “First things First” Philippians 1:20-30 Here we find the great apostle Paul in prison in Rome. There would be some similarities in prison in that day and today but certainly there are some differences as well. In Paul’s day, the prisoner was often shackled, in chains to a guard. This guard ...read more

  • The Marks Of Maturity

    Only when we can say, 'For me to live is Christ' can we truly say, 'to die is gain'. Spiritual maturity is the outcome of a life truly surrendered to Jesus Christ as Lord.

    INTRO Away back in the 1980’s when I began ministry at Abbeyhill Baptist Church a fellow Minister in the City was faced with a problem. A homeless person had turned up at church and the church did not know what to do with him. Rather than doing nothing this colleague who was the Pastor of ...read more

    How will you honor Christ and be a part of your church in the New Year? If we won’t reach out, or if we won’t work together to do reach others, we've become an exclusive, limiting club filled with Pharisees … which is dangerous ground to be on!

    Looking ahead to 2017 Philippians 1:1-30 Introduction The New Year is always an opportunity to reflect, and to look ahead Today, we will forego looking back (can’t change that) and look forward for Christ We know the current condition of the church, of our lives (some good, some ...read more

    True joy does not come from pleasing ourselves, but from pleasing God and from serving others.

    Philippians 1:19-26 Sunday, February 3, 2002 There are times when we make Paul’s first imprisonment in Rome seem like it was a rather comfortable situation. He lived in his own home. He could have visitors whenever he chose. We even seem to take his eventual release as a foregone ...read more

     | 10,681 views

    Why do we have so little impact on our world? Why are we so much like the world, and so un-like our heavenly Father? The second half of Philippians ch 1 challenges us to get our priorities right - the Gospel is all that matters!

    Introduction Imagine this. You’ve become a missionary. You’ve gone to a foreign country that hasn’t heard the Gospel. You try not to be a foreigner, you try and fit in with them. You take on their customs and habits. You wear their clothes, eat their food, learn their language. You love ...read more

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to go through life day by day with an eternal perspective? Have you ever known that kind of person? Their car breaks down and somehow the service man comes to know Christ. Why? They live with an eternal perspective.

    Read: Philippians 1:18-26 Think of a modern example of a person who keeps an eternal perspective. The person who comes to my mind is Jim Elliott. He was famous for saying, he is no fool to give up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” This flows from the heart of a man who had an ...read more

    May God grant us the courage and willingness to exalt Christ in life and in death!
