Sermons about Content
What did Paul do with his "care package"? First, he explains how he has learned the secret of being self-sufficient in Christ and that they really did not need to send the gift. Second, he tells the Philippians that the did good . . . nor "good enough" . . . REALLY good!
If you had to write a Christian "to do" list, it might be close to this passage in the book of Hebrews. As we try to live out our salvation in our lives, the wisdom of Hebrews 13 should come into play. Let's take a look at this good, practical advice.
Pastor Nolan continues the series in Philippians by looking at the ability to be content in Christ through all things. We apologize that this is only a partial sermon.
The exhortation from the Apostle Paul to Timothy to preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching
For the past 15 weeks we have been studying through the book of Philippians in a series entitled "The Christian's Secret to Contentment and Joy". We are now arriving at the conclusion ... and you'll notice today the phrase in vs 11 "I have learned ... in whatever situation I am to be content" is repeated in vs. 12 "I have learned ... the secret" whether I have plenty or I have nothing. So one of the first things we notice is that the contentment we ought to experience ... is something we can learn ... and secondly it is something we need to learn ... b/c we live in a world that not only promotes but depends upon our discontentment.
Be content! Walk with the Lord wherever you are. Neither ethnic identity nor social position are relevant to spiritual status. Bloom right where you have been planted.
