Anxiety is the most common ailment of the mind that faces humans today. You may have heard of Paul saying ?Don?t be anxious?. That?s all well and good but not very practical. Often times this makes us feel even worse about ourselves when we feel anxiety grow. There is hope, even in the midst of anxious thoughts.
Is there any good in the world around us? Some would say the world is a great place and others say it is rotten to the core. Which is right? Paul the Apostle has some encouragement in how to live in this age and yet serve and reflect the One who made the universe.
Would you consider yourself to be content? Most people don?t and the reason is that this age teaches us to always want more and never be satisfied. Paul the Apostle learned the secret to contentment that he shares freely as he finishes up his letter to the Philippians.
Pastor Tom uses the environment, culture, technology, and language of the ancient world to show God's perfect plan for sending a Savior.
There are three great themes in Philippians that help us understand not only this letter but our relationship to God, the church, and the world. The themes are: Connecting to God, Connecting to Others, and Connecting the gospel to the world.
