Real Joy - Real Faith - Real Life: All Things Through Him

Our last lesson in Philippians! In the final chapter of his letter, Paul returns to the main themes of unity and joy and contentment. It was a chilly morning so we enjoyed having Bible study before a crackling fire, which you hear in the audio :)


Real Joy - Real Faith - Real Life: Let Us Hold True

In this lesson, we continue to discuss Paul's single-minded determination to follow Jesus. "One thing I do," he writes, this one thing comprising his life's ambition summarized by forgetting what lies behind, straining toward what lies ahead, and pressing on toward the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. We talk about what seems to be arrogance on Paul's behalf when he urges the church to imitate him and we close with the relevance of his warning about enemies of the cross whose chief desire is to please themselves.
