Philippians 1:12-26 What gives purpose and focus to your life? In today’s message we meet a man who had every reason to feel sorry for himself. In prison, disparaged by rivals, and possibly facing the death sentence …. he could have been overcome with despair. But shining through, despite his circumstances and even through his circumstances, we see his overwhelming passion to magnify Christ. “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” What a motto to…
Philippians 1:1-11 The Philippians are Paul’s faithful partners in the gospel (1:5) as those who share with Paul in God’s grace (1:7). Paul’s desire is that the gospel would continue to grip the hearts and minds of the Philippian church, resulting in changed lives, to the glory of God. Paul’s prayer here ought to shape ours. Let us be joyfully giving thanks and interceding for those with whom we are partners in the gospel.
Ephesians 2:1-10We’re all searching for a life of purpose. Listen as we think about why true purpose is so elusive and what it means for us to find and live out our true purpose in Christ.

Let us come to him and have our thirst quenched.

Matthew 28 The resurrection was God’s final word against sin, Satan and death. Jesus then speaks some final words of instruction to those who claim to follow him. Listen as we consider what it means for us to make disciples of the risen Jesus.
Matthew 26-27 How are Christians supposed to feel about the death of Jesus … sad? angry? happy? In this message Pastor Murray explores this question. Certainly the events leading to the crucifixion are excruciating. The graphic nature of the gospel accounts is meant to fill us with horror. What Jesus suffered on our behalf was unbelievably cruel. But there was a divine twist to this cruelty. In the tragedy of the cross, God was defeating Satan and opening the way…
Romans 12:9-13 The Christian community is a family that includes much diversity. But if we are going to live as a family, we will need to have a love for each other that reflects God’s love; in Quality, Commitment and Expression. We need to be mastered by the love of Jesus.
