Grace: The Motivation For Reconciliation

I urge Euodia and Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, my true yokefellow, to help these women who have labored with me for the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.” 

Philippians 4:2-3
Paul, The Apostle of Grace

In Philippians 4:1, Paul concluded his message about the righteousness that comes by faith alone in Jesus alone, telling the Philippian believers: “that is how you must stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.” Paul’s heart was to see them stand firm in what the Lord had done for them, receiving his righteousness by faith, rather than seeking to achieve righteousness through the religious and moral works put forth by the false teachers, whom Paul called “dogs, those workers of evil, those mutilators of the flesh!

The Quickest Way Out Of Relationship Problems

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but in humility consider others more important than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."
Philippians 2:3-4
Paul, The Apostle of Grace

Sometimes people look for the quickest way out of a relationship.

There are times that needs to be done.

But I believe those relationships are the exception rather than the rule.

Rather than looking for the quickest way out of the relationship, we need to look for the quickest way out of the relationship problems.

Philippians 1:6 In Context: "He Who Began A Good Work In You..."

 "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6


One of the most quoted Bible verses is Philippians 1:6 which says, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." 

Even though many people know that God begins a good work in us at salvation, most do not know what the good work is. To understand, appreciate, and experience

Getting Rid Of Anger By Giving Away God's Grace

Anger is an emotion many people allow to control their lives. As a result, their anger causes many problems in their own lives and in the lives of others. Jesus told a story about king's servant who allowed anger to take charge of his life. Consequently, his anger ruined his life. Before we look deeper into the life of the angry servant, let's look at the cause and consequences of anger. 

THE MAJOR CAUSE OF ANGER

Someone does something we wish he or she had not done

When someone does something we wish he had not done, we get mad.

Creating Homes of Grace

Fathers, do not exasperate your children;
instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4

Families are to be educational centers for children to learn about God's grace from their parents. From their parents, children are to learn about the salvation of God's grace which will save them from the condemnation of the law. Specifically, fathers are to be to the first ones in the family to teach the children about God's grace.

In Ephesians 6:4, the instruction of the Lord is the revelation of grace by the ascended Jesus to Paul that he has instructed the families of the church about in Ephesians 1-5.

Creating A Home Of Grace

Fathers, do not exasperate your children;
instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4


Families are to be educational centers for children to learn about God's grace. Specifically, fathers are to be to the first ones in the family to teach the children about God's grace.

In seeking to properly interpret and apply Ephesians 6:4, we must first understand Ephesians chapters 1-5. In these chapters, Paul goes into great detail about the glorious riches of God's grace freely given to us in Jesus.

There Are No Perfect Families

There are no perfect families. There are no perfect marriages. There are no perfect wives. There are no perfect husbands. There are no perfect parents. There are no perfect moms. There are no perfect dads. There are no perfect children. There are no perfect daughters. There are no perfect sons. There are no perfect siblings. There are no perfect sisters. There are no perfect brothers. For all have sinned and fall short of God's perfect love.

Yet, God demonstrated his perfect love for the imperfect, which are all of us, when in our imperfections, our sins, Jesus died for us.
