The War To End All Wars

THE WAR TO END ALL WARS “In your relationships with one another, have the same mind-set as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made Himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Did Paul Get It Wrong?

DID PAUL GET IT WRONG? “It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defence of the gospel.

REALLY POSITIVE LIVING “Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel.

The Rule Of Faith

THE RULE OF FAITH “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

The Reward Of Faith

THE REWARD OF FAITH “See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand! Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised.

You Reap What You Sow

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW “Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with his instructor. Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

What You Do Is What You Are

WHAT YOU DO IS WHAT YOU ARE “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies and the like.

The Battle Rages On

THE BATTLE RAGES ON  “So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
