Philippians 4:13—You Can Do It!

Recently, I’ve had the privilege of preaching through the book of Philippians at my local church. It has been a real rich blessing since Philippians is a rather well known epistle in evangelical circles. The short epistle has so many often-quoted passages in evangelicalism (Phil 1:6, 21; 2:3-4, 6-11, 12-13; 3:7-11; 4:4, 8-9). Yesterday, we…

False Identity in Ministry

But during this past summer, the elders thought it would be a refreshing time to spend some Sundays in the Old Testament. Since…
