The Case for Christian Optimism
By way of encouragement and examples Paul challenges believers in Philippi (and where you are) to lives of Christian optimism. He helps us see beyond ourselves to a purposeful present and a certain eternity with Christ
Since Jesus’ ascension the anticipation of believers has been not just of being united with Him after death, BUT that He would come back for us as He promised in John 14:1-3. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to further explain this event in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and elsewhere.
Grace for These Last Days

Our weapons are not physical, but spiritual and we can learn to deploy them in winsome ways...but not without effort and difficulty. Let's learn the content of our message and how we can engage the enemies grace and to win them.
