If you enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles, you know it helps immensely to look at the picture on the box. When we study the final result, it’s a lot easier to fit the individual pieces together. In this message, we’ll see the goal, the ultimate outcome, for Christian living as we consider what the individual pieces of our life should look like.
Take Dead Aim, Volume 1Even as a prisoner, the Apostle Paul remained confident about his direction and purpose in life: “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” When pride and jealousy fostered division among the Philippian Christians, then, Paul redirected their focus to Jesus, the supreme example of sacrificial love. Passionate that all should share in God’s grace, he also provided principles to guide the Church in all generations as we set our sights on Him. In Volume 1 of this series, Alistair Begg examines the loving, Gospel-centered partnership Paul enjoyed with the Philippians. Concerned that neither their fellowship nor their witness would be jeopardized, Paul promoted unity through humility, charity, and practical obedience. By trusting in God’s providence and promises, we too can learn to rejoice in all circumstances and display faith that is attractive to a watching world.
Take Dead Aim, Volume 2The Apostle Paul was in no doubt as to his direction and purpose in life. In the very heart of this letter to the Philippians, he makes his focus clear. "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus" Throughout this letter, Paul urges upon these dear Philippian believers the need for them to be equally focused when it comes to the matter of living for Christ. This series of studies will not only prove useful for the Christian who is seeking to get "back on track," but also to the local church that is seeking to discover its identity in Christ and fulfill the purpose God has for it. The problems that had arisen among Philippian Christians could not be allowed to jeopardize their enjoyment of one another’s company, nor their witness before the watching world. Like a skillful shepherd, Paul establishes them in the truths necessary to live for Christ.
