Sermon #3 – The Unstoppable Gospel Advance (Phil. 1:12-18)

Sermon #4 – It’s a Win Win (Phil. 1:19-26)


Catch up on what you missed from the past two Sunday’s Philippians Series. Next Sunday’s message will continue on through Philippians 1:12-18.

Sermon #1: Phil. 1:1-3

Sermon #2: Phil 1:3-11

This is my first official message to Hope Fellowship Church.

God is good.

I am thankful for His goodness. God has given me the opportunity to be welcomed as the Teaching Elder/Pastor for Hope Fellowship Church. Praise Him for his goodness and praise Him for my new opportunity to preach and teach the Bible to the body. I am humbled at this responsibility and yet confident in God’s grace as sufficient to empower me to complete the task he has already begun in me.

If you would, please pray for Jamie and me, as we begin this new journey. We covet your prayers.

I am excited about preaching at HFC again this Sunday (4/26/15). Here are a few of the themes we will cover on Sunday morning’s message.

2 Samuel 9

Quoted from David: A Man of Passion and Destiny by Charles Swindoll

8 Analogies of Grace

1. Once Mephibosheth had enjoyed fellowship with his father, and so had humanity in the Garden of Eden.

2. When disaster struck, fear came, and Mephibosheth suffered a fall that crippled him for the rest of his life. Similarly, when sin came, humanity suffered a fall, which has forever left us spiritually crippled.

3. Out of unconditioonal love for his friend Jonathan, David sought anyone to whom he might extend his grace. God, because of His unconditional love for His Son and acceptance of His Son’s death on the cross, continues to seek anyone to whom He might extend His grace.

4. The crippled man was destitute and undeserving. All he could do was accept the king’s favor. So, also, we sinners are undeserving and without hope. In no way are we worthy of our King’s favor. All we can do is humbly and gratefully accept it.

5. The king took the crippled Mephibosheth from a barren wasteland and seated him at the royal banquet table in the palace. God, our Father, has rescued us from a moral wasteland and seated us in a place of spiritual nourishment and intimacy.

6. David adopted Mephibosheth into his royal family, providing him with every blessing within the palace. We also have been adopted into a family–God’s family. And He gives us full privileges within His household.

7. Mephibosheth’s limp was a constant reminder of David’s grace. So also, our moral feebleness keeps us from ever forgetting that were sin abounds, grace abounds that much more.

8. When Mephibosheth sat at the king’s table, he was treated with the same respect as David’s own sons. When we one day attend the great wedding feast of the Lamb, the same will be true for us. We will sit with prophets and priests, apostles and evangelists, pastors and missionaries. We will dine with everyone from the apostle Peter to Corrie ten Boom. And we will be there with them because that same tablecloth of grace covers all our feet.

2 Corinthians 1:5 (ESV)

For we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.

2 Corinthians 1:5 (alternate translation)

For as the sufferings of Christ abound for us, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

But what does that comfort look like? We receive comfort through Christ, but how? I take comfort knowing what Christ has done through the gospel for us.

Listen to my sermon: Throne of Grace: Hebrews 4:16

This is a short 20 minute challenge I preached to the students at DCA today. If you have a few minutes please listen to it. I have also put below here the handout I refer to in the sermon for your benefit.

Disclaimer: I have a cold and I only had a 2 days to prepare for this because I was filling in for another teacher. But I trust it will still be a blessing to whomever hears it.

Sermon handout by Jordan Moody adapted from The Cross Centered Life by C. J. Mahaney

“Unloading Condemnation: How the Cross Removes Guilt and Shame” (Chapter 4)

  1. Check your bags
    • Our bags are the burdens we carry with us
    • Condemnation may show itself in grief, guilt, self-denial, regret.
    • Without Jesus condemnation is normal and we deserve to be punished for it.
  2. Low-Grade Guilt
    • Are you more aware of your sin than you are of God’s grace, given you through the cross?
    • “Don’t buy the lie that cultivating condemnation and wallowing in your shame is somehow pleasing to God, or that a constant, low-grade guilt will somehow promote holiness and spiritual maturity.”
  3. An Uninvited Guest
    • Luke 7:36-50
  4. Our Many Sins
    • Though our sins may be like scarlet they are made white as snow.
    • Her guilt is gone. She loves much because she’s been forgiven much.
  5. Lose your luggage and beat condemnation
    • Confess your sin to God.
    • Then believe in Him.
    • Don’t be paralyzed by condemnation but rather exalt God’s grace over your condemnation.
