1 Peter (Program #12) -Growth in Life and Its Results (2)

At times the apostle Peter’s way of writing in his New Testament epistles seems very strange.  Though his content is quite high, he breaks many rules of composition by mixing metaphors and awkward use of grammar.   For example in chapter 2 of 1 Peter he describes the spiritual nourishment in the word of God by comparing it to the nourishing milk of a nursing mother for her new born babe.  But then without any apparent transition the metaphor changes to Christ being a stone for the building up of God’s house.  As a work of literature we might have a ground to criticize Peter, but as a conveyor of rich spiritual content, we will see today that Peter’s writing is full of the divine thought and deep experiential enlightenment.

Philippians (Program #29) -The Apostle’s Secret of Sufficiency in Christ

In Philippians 4:12 the apostle Paul said he had learned the secret more specifically he said in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to hunger, both to abound and to lack. This secret from Paul’s own experience is the secret of sufficiency or satisfaction and seeing how he wrote this word while in prison in Roman it carries even more weight.

This is indeed a marvelous portion in Philippians, showing that Christ is our secret to enable us to be content in every circumstances that God places us in in His sovereignty.

Paul is not writing from a doctrinal point of view, we may study the book of Philippians or other books in the Bible and have a kind of knowledge.  But really have we tab into the secret of experiencing Christ as his sufficiency puts it in a little different light.

Luke (Program #2) – Introduction, Subject and Contents of the Gospel (2)

The New Testament is the most marvelous book, tremendous composition yet it is mysterious and beyond our natural comprehension as well. One perplexity is that it gives us four different accounts of the life of Jesus. Why four different accounts of one history? Well that’s because each account highlights a different aspect or facet of this most wonderful and marvelous person in the universe, Jesus Christ. What facet do we see in the gospel of Luke? Well, Luke than more all of the rest of the books in the Bible shows us Jesus Christ as the full, complete, perfect and genuine man. A man unlike any other.
