Perseverance from Prison Part 2

“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable to His death” Philippians 3:10.

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon look at what it means to “know” Jesus as they examine Philippians Chapter 3.

Paul writes this letter to the saints in Philippi from prison. In this part of the letter, we find perseverance being expressed.

Once a relationship with the Lord is developed, then it takes perseverance from whatever prison you might be in to move on in growing in that relationship. All relationships take time, effort, interest, care, compassion, patience, etc. and definitely perseverance.

Perseverance from Prison Pt. 1

“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not troublesome, but for you, it is safe” Philippians 3:1.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon move to Philippians Chapter 3 where Paul perseveres with the saints in Philippi. He reminds them of the things he has told them before. He shares with them the importance of pressing ahead and to keep God first in their life. He encourages them to rejoice in Jesus Christ, for He is the source of their joy.  You can be an earthbound Christian or a heaven-bound Christian; that is a choice we are given to make. The time that we have on this earth is the boot training camp where we are being trained on how the Lord has called us.

Principles From Prison Part 2

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life” Philippians 2:14-16. 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon continue their discussion in Philippians Chapter 2 where Paul shares principles for Christian living from prison.

There are many times that we are bound by chains that are not necessarily physical. It can be health issues, financial circumstances, or any number of situations that cause us to feel like we are in a prison. Paul gives us an example to live; in that, although he was in chains, he still encouraged those around him.

It’s not always easy to wear a happy face when struggles are so difficult but when we spend time with the Lord and know what He thinks toward us, we can have hope and joy in the midst of those struggles.

Remember that Christianity is a journey we live out each day; growing, maturing, and working out our own salvation with fear and trembling.

Principles from Prison Part 1

“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any compassion and mercies, fulfill you my joy, that you be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind” Philippians 2:1-2.

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon move into Philippians Chapter Two where Paul shares some principles for Christian living from prison. This letter reveals a unity of love that Paul feels for the saints in Philippi.

Paul is sharing these principles so that the saints will be encouraged to care for one another. We can care for others with our prayers. We can be sensitive to the needs of others by understanding things from their perspective. Unity comes through the fellowship of the Spirit in these ways; prayer, sensitivity, comfort, love, and compassion. Let our joy be filled with all love.

Sharon shares a little more about the struggles she is facing with her diagnosis of cancer and moving forward with the cure through chemo.

Prayers From Prison Part 2

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon look at Philippians Chapter One and the prayers Paul shares from his prison cell.

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon continue their discussion on Philippians Chapter One and the prayers Paul shares from prison. The saints at Philippi are learning to boldly speak out as they see the way Paul is handling his circumstances in chains.

They are praying for Paul and their prayers are giving him strength, so they are sharing in the suffering with Paul for his deliverance.

Many of the circumstances that we face in life are not easy roads to travel but when we can suffer to the glory of God others are strengthened and encouraged to boldly stand in Christ. When we pray for each other through the trials, then we participate in their deliverance. How sweet it is when the saints work together in unity of Christ.

What the Bible Says About Child Training

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green digs into What the Bible Says About Child Training by J. Richard Fugate

Ginger Green explores What the Bible Says About Child Training by J. Richard Fugate. The book is based solely upon the Biblical viewpoint and acceptance of the Bible as the final authority of truth. There are many conflicting theories about how to train children, disagreements on means of discipline, and confusion on the definition of love. “The need for clear guidelines for parents to be successful in child training is dramatically evident in our society today.” But more important than helping parents be successful in training their children is the hope to save our nation.

Prayers from Prison Part 1

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon look at Philippians Chapter One and the prayers Paul shares from his prison cell.

 

 

We can have joy in every trial that we go through as we allow God to give us the strength to endure them. The sweetness of joy can overflow into our situation because of the promises we have in Christ. There is nothing more excellent than what the Cross of Christ has done for us. As we look at our situations in light of Paul’s words we can find the same hope he had from whatever “prison cell” we may be facing. Sharon shares her diagnosis of breast cancer and all that the Lord is teaching her along the way.

Know Who You Believe

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green digs into Know Who You Believed by Paul Little.

 

 

Do you question whether God knows or cares about you in your everyday life? Would you like to be connected with God? Do you feel you need to know a little more about God before connecting with Him?

If so, come be a part and join author Paul Little as he helps you to closely examine the central truths about God and enable you to know with confidence in whom you believe!

This 3rd volume was published after the death of Paul Little by his wife Marie Little from a cache of Paul’s files, tapes, and a previous book entitled The Answer to Life. Marie has used Paul’s voice on every page…the thoughts and theology are his. Marie has added some updated terms and references, but whenever she does, she has set them off from the main text.

I so appreciate the work she has done. To me, it is such a blessing that Paul’s wonderful insights were not lost due to his untimely death.

It is not enough to know about God’s Word, ways, and attributes. It is not enough to preach about these, proclaim the Good News, or promote Bible study. What the deciding factor is of whether or not we are in-dwelt by the Spirit of God and on the road to eternal life is that we know God.
