Joyful Living (Philippians)

Star-Quality Christians

Philippians 2:12-18 – March 11, 2013

The world has its stars and God has his.

God’s Promise to You

Philippians 4:13-23 – January 10, 1999

With this sermon we come to the end of our series from the book of Philippians. I have mentioned several times that this book is essentially a thank-you note from the Apostle Paul to the church at Philippi. He is writing to thank them for the gift they sent when they heard he was a […]

Will You Have a Happy New Year?

Philippians 4:10-13 – January 3, 1999

This week I made a list of things to worry about as we start the new year. These things are not personal in nature, rather they touch on national and international issues that affect all of us. 1. The impeachment crisis in Washington No one can say with certainty what will happen when the trial […]

How to Have Joy All Year Long

Philippians 4:1-9 – December 27, 1998

As we come to the end of another year, once again we find ourselves in a world filled with problems, doubts, worries, and fears. We sing “Joy to the world,” but there is not as much joy as we would like. Too many unhappy people walk our city streets. People today aren’t as cheerful as […]

Go for the Gold

Philippians 3:12-21 – December 6, 1998

Students of the New Testament agree that Paul must have been a sports fan. Over and over again—many times in many places—he uses illustrations from sports to make his point. He speaks of wrestling, boxing, running, winning the race, winning the prize, and winning crowns. He talks about the discipline necessary to win and the […]

From Rubbish to Jesus

Philippians 3:1-11 – November 29, 1998

To me the most arresting part of this passage is verse 8. I am struck by one word Paul uses to describe his own life. Listen to what he says, “What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord, for whose sake I have lost […]

Making God’s A-Team

Philippians 2:19-30 – November 22, 1998

Let’s begin with a question that might be slightly embarrassing to some people. Do you like to read other people’s mail? When I asked that question on Sunday morning, I noticed quite a few sheepish grins in the congregation. Before you answer, let me clarify the question. I’m not asking if you should read someone […]

Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?

Philippians 2:6-11 – October 25, 1998

Who is Jesus Christ? Of all the questions that might be posed to modern men and women, none is more important than this. It is no exaggeration to say that this is the central question of history and the most important issue anyone will ever face. Who is Jesus Christ? Where did he come from? […]

Getting Along With Cantankerous Christians

Philippians 2:1-4 – October 18, 1998

Here is the text taken from The Message, a contemporary translation of the New Testament by Eugene Peterson: If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, […]

Joy in the Trenches

Philippians 1:27-30 – October 4, 1998

Dr. Ray Pritchard issues a stirring call to live worthy of the gospel. We can make an impact for Christ in our world if we will stand without division, strive without compromise, speak without fear, and sacrifice without shame.

The Life That Wins

Philippians 1:19-26 – September 27, 1998

This week I was browsing through my library and happened upon a book that I purchased 16 years ago called The University of Success, edited by a man named Og Mandino. As I flipped through the pages, I came to a discussion of the universal qualities of successful people. I was struck with the statement […]

Keep Your Eye on the Donut and Not on the Hole

Philippians 1:12-18 – September 20, 1998

In the 20 years I have been a pastor, a good portion of my time each week has been spent talking with people going through hard times. I suppose it just comes with the territory. When things go well, the pastor rarely hears from people. But when life tumbles in, the pastor gets a telephone […]

How to Pray for Anyone About Anything

Philippians 1:9-11 – September 13, 1998

How would you rate your own prayer life? If you had to give yourself a grade, would it be A … B … C … D … or F? Or as someone suggested, how about the word “Incomplete”? Before you decide on an answer, let’s try the question another way. Is your prayer life A) […]

Joyful Living in a Grumpy World

Philippians 1:1-8 – September 6, 1998

This morning we are beginning a new sermon series from the book of Philippians. By all accounts this is one of the most beloved books in the New Testament. We love to read Philippians and we love to study it and to memorize it. There are many reasons for this, not least of which is […]

Think On These Things

Philippians 4:8-9 – July 24, 1994

Here is God’s prescription for believers trapped in unhealthy living: Think On These Things! Focus on the good, the pure, the true, the holy, the right, the lovely. Find those things that elevate the mind and think on them! Enthrone Christ as the Lord of your mind and your life will be transformed.
