Philippians 4:8–9

Posted:Friday, December 07, 2018

“Keep on doing the things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.” We want to accomplish monumental acts of heroism for God. We want to change the world. But Paul is here calling us to routine acts of faithfulness, and to “keep on doing” them again and again. Those who live by grace don’t think in terms of what they want to accomplish, but in terms of how God is changing the world through the faithful acts of quiet servants.

Philippians 4:2–7

Let your gentleness be known to everyone… 4:5

Paul doesn’t tell Euodia and Syntyche to avoid having conflicts. He does tell them to have the “same mind in the Lord,” and he tells them to conduct the conflicts gently. In fact, he expects the whole church to be known for its gentleness. This is not the same a weakness. Only the strong can be gentle

Philippians 3:4–16

Posted:Friday, November 16, 2018

"…forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal…"

The grace of God disrupts the former plans we had for life, and it compels to let go of the alternative past we could have had. That is the only way we can be free to focus on the goal of using our lives for the work of Christ. As Paul and other biblical lives illustrate, God is not easy on the people who get used for the Gospel. But interestingly, in the end they all want to talk about their surpassing joy.

Philippians 2:1–11

Posted:Monday, November 12, 2018

…at the name of Jesus, every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth…

Living in a very anxious society we strive to find ways to secure our lives, typically by discerning who is to blame for our problems. But the grace of God that binds us to Christ teaches us to conquer such aggression with humility. Grace sounds nice, but it is actually subversive of the prevailing order.

Philippians 1:12–18a

Posted:Thursday, September 27, 2018

These proclaim Christ out of love… the other proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition… 1:16-17

Some expressions of Christianity are embarrassing. Often it appears that the more anti-intellectual, and theologically naïve preachers are the more popular they are. But that should not be our deepest embarrassment. The real problem is the lack of love that sometimes accompanies our theological sophistication.

Philippians 1:1–11

…the one who began a good work in you will bring it to completion…

Postmodern society is suspicious of embracing narratives or even plots. We are now tempted to believe life is a series of disconnected events that have no meaning apart from what we bring to them. But by grace, we have been incorporated into the good work of a Creator who is not done.

Opening Communion Sermon for the 2018–19 Academic Year

Posted:Thursday, September 06, 2018

“Choosing Joy” - Ecclesiastes 9:7–10
Preacher: M. Craig Barnes, President and Professor of Pastoral Ministry
So eat your bread with enjoyment, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God long ago approved of what you do.
We tend to think more seriously about the spirituality of the cross and suffering, then we do the spirituality of having a merry heart. But God has approved our joy.
