  1. CHOOSE JOY! (Philippians 1:12-18)
    Our world system makes it pretty clear that joy is something that happens to you if you can just click in all the right things – kind of a roll of the dice. The implication is that it is clearly related to our circumstances. The amazing, counter-intuitive teaching of the Bible is that joy is a choice – largely unrelated to circumstances; that joy is available to everyone, not just the lucky. In fact, joy is listed as one of the tell-tale evidences that the Spirit of God is active in your heart. It is a radical decision everyone has to make: Will I choose joy? Will you?

  2. WHAT GOD STARTS, HE FINISHES
    (Philippians 1:3-11)
    We westerners are obsessed with doing. We think sweat, energy, productivity – and endless doing is the key to everything. When we think of God’s will, we often think, “What does He want me to do?” – as if that’s the ultimate goal. When we follow God’s direction, we look for a completed, packaged product – something. But God’s completed product is us. Our hearts. Who we become – who we are. Who we become lasts for all eternity. That’s why God doesn’t get flustered by hindrances, tragedies, incomplete programs and failures. He has started a work in your heart that He is determined to complete – but He needs and wants your cooperation. The question is – will you FINISH well?

  3. A NEW COUNTRY - GOD'S COUNTRY
    Jesus talked a lot about the Kingdom of God. He literally meant, the span of God’s reign and leadership. The word kingdom brings up a lot of stuff from the middle ages – knights, castles, princesses – stuff that has no real place in what Jesus meant. The word country or nation may make more sense for us. For example, God’s nation is where the basic constitution is about loving God and loving others. There’s a kind of bill of rights. But the way of this nation – is higher ground; the kind Jesus talked about in labeling the roads, the narrow path which leads to life and the broad road which leads to death. In this book, Paul talks about what has been called the principle of the path. That direction – not your intentions – determine your destination!
