The Gospel Centered Life – Philippians 1

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest news that has ever been heard.  It is central to the life of a Christian, and must be our focus in all that we do.  Paul appreciated how the Philippian church was involved in the spreading of the gospel, and he gives instruction to live as those who have been called by the gospel.

Because He Cares For You – 1 Peter 5:6-7 (sermon audio)

What a blessing for God’s people to know that He cares for us.  Jesus assures us of God’s care in the Sermon on the Mount, and throughout Scripture there are multiple examples of God looking after his people.

Submission in Practice – Ephesians 5:21-6:9 (sermon audio)

Submission is a guiding principle in a Christian’s life.  We are to submit to God.  We are commanded to submit to government.  Ane we must also submit to one another.  Sometimes there is a specific order that God has ordained for relationships in our lives, such as in our families or in business.  Paul deals with these things in our text tonight.

A Sermon With No Scripture – Acts 17:22-34 (sermon audio)

Usually we balk at the idea of a preacher not using any Scripture in his sermon, as well we should.  But there is at least one example of the apostle Paul preaching a sermon without referencing any Scripture.  It’s his sermon to the Areopagus in Acts 17, and though he teaches Scriptural truth, he doesn’t quote any Biblical texts as he presents the truth to idolatrous philosophers.
