Sermons about Macedonia
Hans discuses Acts 16:6-15, where Paul and his companions are called away from their own plans and told by God to go to Macedonia.
We begin our study of 1 Thessalonians by looking at events recorded by Luke in Acts 16 & 17. What is the religious, political, and cultural climate that serves as a background to the study of 1 Thessalonians?
Paul writes to the Philippians, and with all of his affection and love for them, his prayer is that they would not grow cold to the Gospel, but that they would engage with the living savior. But they must pursue the things that are vital - but how do they know what is vital?
So often we give up the long story of God for the short, momentary story of the things we are facing here and now. We are looking at the backstory of the book pof Philippians, looking specifically at the story of Paul's first encounter with Philippi (the city were the Philippians lived) in Acts 16.
In a message taken from 2 Corinthians we hear how the Apostle Paul taught that we should be cheerful givers even in times of hardship.
Churches often shy away from talking about money, but perhaps this is to the detriment of people's spiritual growth. In the first sermon in this four-week series Pastor Tim looks at the topic of generosity by looking at God's generosity to us.
We normally think that Philippians is all about joy, and that is of course a major theme when it flashes forth 16 times. But it is sparked by the deeper themes of Paulâ€™s letter. Philippians calls us to a particular kind of joy - a joy that was experience by Paul in Roman captivity facing a capital charge while his leadership was being contested. In this sermon we will look at acts 16 and see the journey Paul took to get to Philippi with his companions (Luke, Timothy, and Silas) including the Macedonia call by the Spirit of God. Secondly we will look at Paul's reception by 3 different people in Acts 16 when he arrives at Philippi. Finally, we will look at the occasion for this letter late in Paul's imprisonment at Rom (probably after 62 AD). My desire and prayer is that you will see the servant heart of Paul in fellowship with the Philippians Christians was based on making Christ the center of the letter and the motivation of His joy.
