Philippians Webinar

View the Live Recording of Matt talking about Philippians Here.

Friends, we had a blast doing the Phil webinar. Wow, live video is so much fun and anything can happen. As many of you know the office building we were using and the entire block of buildings in Dallas had a power grid failure. Welcome to Texas Heat in the summer.

But, God reigns and made it happen. I felt like Matt did an amazing job sharing his heart and highlights of the To Live is Christ & to Die is Gain series.

The point that stands out the most to me so far in this study is that if we get everything else right, moral, legal, religious, but don’t get Jesus, love relationship with Him, we have missed the point. Matt says and asks in the series, what is the scariest verse in all the Bible, “depart from me for I never knew you.” I know some out there will think there is scare tactics or fear in that, I am not going there, I am just commenting that many of us have grown up in a ‘religious’ environment and ‘done’ church. True love, peace, purpose, and power that changes lives is when we Know Christ and He fills our lives. Then we are different. Then we can make a difference for Christ and eternity, not for a ‘religious’ group.

This study in Philippians has absolutely challenged me to know the Word better and to pray and know Christ more intimately. I don’t want ‘business as usual’ in my walk with Christ, I want to experience Him, and His power and Love.

Let’s discuss…

Matt Chandler and Philippians

Our passion at SOS is the Bible and how it communicates God’s love and truth to us. The greatness of the Bible and God, His written down, literal word, is that it catches us wherever we are at any moment in life.

If you sense at this moment you are at the top of your game, at the lowest point in a long time, bored with life or even fulfilled at the moment, God is always relevant and ready to speak truth in your life.

Matt Chandler, Pastor of The Village in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area does an amazing job bringing the meaning of the book of Philippians to live. Our title for this series is To Live is Christ & To Die is Gain. Sound familiar? Of course, it is straight from the scriptures.

Matt starts by taking a look at the first 3 ‘characters’ mentioned in the letter. It is so important to me that when you read scripture, especially New Testament letters that you ‘get into the story.’ Remember, these are literally letters written from a person to a group of people. Of course the words and meaning are inspired directly from God, but there is personality and insight that comes from the text.

So, over the next few days or so, we will look at a profile of these 3 characters, and for fun, you can all vote on which one of these folks you and your story with Christ is most like.
