A topical study of the Christian calling as presented in the epistle to the Ephesians and other scriptural sources.
Paul wrote the epistle to the Colossians to strengthen the faith of the believers there and to warn them of the dangers posed by false teachers in their midst. Paul responded to these false teachers by emphasizing the divine nature of Jesus Christ together with His supreme control of all things. After laying the foundation of a proper understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ, Paul then concludes the epistle by revealing how the Colossian Christian’s faith in Christ should reveal itself in lives of personal godliness.
Paul's Epistle to the Philippians is a personal thank-you note to dear friends for help, which was long-standing and on-going. It is a letter, which radiates joy, love, thanksgiving, hope, and praise from a man "in chains!" (cf. Colossians 4:3). Its main theme can be found in Paul's evangelical admonition, "Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!" (4:4) But how could a man "in chains" rejoice? The answer, as Paul reveals, is found in the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ! May our study of this epistle, which reveals to us the object of Paul's faith and the source of his strength, serve both to instruct and inspire us in our faith-life!
(Solomon - Judah's End)
We again resume our study of Old Testament history, beginning with King Solomon and continuing through the divided kingdom and the captivity of both Israel and Judah.
Our Father, who art in heaven. Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
The Epistle of James is classified as a "General Epistle." It is not addressed to a specific person or congregation or situation; nor does it have one specific topic. Other "general epistles" are 1 & 2 Peter; 1, 2, 3 John; and Jude.
