Sermon on Philippians 1:12-30- Sharing Jesus in the Face of Death

Philippians 1:12-30

In this passage, Paul encourages the believers at Philippi and us to continue sharing Jesus even in the face of persecution and death, because we know that we will get more of Christ either way. It is a win-win situation....if we die, we meet Jesus and if we don't die, we can live for Jesus down here.

First Sermon at Piney Grove- Partnering Together in the Gospel

Philippians 1:1-11

In the beginning of Paul's letter to the church at Philippi, he shares his excitement that they would become partners with him in advancing the gospel of Christ. In this message, I stress the importance of partnering with others in making the name of Jesus known all over our world.

Grateful for an Unequaled Wife

I have been listening to the marriage conference held at Southern Seminary recently online at night with Emily and have been reminded that I, as a husband, have not been faithfully cherishing my wife as I ought. I was greatly challenged by C.J. Mahaney's message that stated the importance to have regular scheduled opportunities for uplifting your spouse and giving her a chance to get away from the mother personality for a short time. I was also challenged by listening to Dr. Russell Moore's message about fighting for your marriage like Christ stood against the Enemy for our good out of his steadfast love.

I as a husband have been blessed with the most unequaled wife of all. There is no other woman on the planet who can come close to Emily Ruth Wynn and I need not look any further than her. She is always utterly encouraging to me and her wonderful love in my life challenges me to be the man God has called me to be. There are several things that I love about Emily. One of the t…

Grateful for a Great Country

Today is the Fourth of July and it reminds me how thankful I should be that I was born and raised in this wonderful country. Thank you for all those who serve or have served our country in the United States Armed Forces and for all the sacrifices you have made so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have. Its great to have grown up in a country where everyone is free to believe what they want, but where the gospel of Jesus Christ is freely shared with all. Although our country is far from the Lord, I am grateful that God has kept us from plunging deeper than we are now.

Thankful for Seminary

I just finished my four year seminary career and man was it amazing. I have learned so much these past four years about the grace that God has given in sending His one and only Son. If someone were to ask me what the number one thing I learned in seminary is, I would have to say that I learned more about God's love for sinners in Christ than anything else. Before going to seminary I talked with one person who had just graduated and I asked them what they thought. They told me it should be called cemetery because this particular person's experience was not very good. I have to say that I don't understand how someone's experience could have been so negative because mine seemed so great. The professors at Southern Seminary are some of the most gifted Bible scholars in the world and yet they are very down to earth and friendly. I have had the privilege to learn the original languages of the Scripture along with courses on Church History and Systematic Theology. I have tak…
