In today’s sermon, we look at Paul’s call to the Philippians to avoid false teachings and doctrines.

United in Humility—Philippians 2:1-30

In today’s sermon, we unpack Philippians 2. We see Paul discuss the importance of humility in the Christian life, and he cites Christ’s humility as the model for believers to emulate in their own lives. Paul encourages the Philippian believers–and all believers–to pursue humility, as it ensures unity within the church. Paul reminds the Philippian believers that the church’s unity is of the utmost importance, for it is only when the church is unified that it can do the work that God has left for it to do.

In this sermon, we begin studying Paul’s letter to the believers in Philippi. Though Paul wrote this letter from prison, he was rejoicing in his trials. In chapter 1, we explore how Paul began the letter by encouraging the Philippian believers to seek unity amongst themselves and to lead lives worthy of the Gospel of Christ.
Are You Mad?—Jonah 4:1-11

In this sermon, we explore the final chapter of the Book of Jonah. We look at Jonah’s furious response to God’s mercy towards Nineveh, and how Jonah’s anger causes him to spiral further into irrationality. Despite Jonah’s fury and irrationality, God responds calmly and forces Jonah to change his perspective.
