Most of us reading this command will not automatically think of ourselves in connection with such clear violations of integrity as these words indicate. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase The Co…
 
Consider the fascinating word grumble. At first glance it seems like such a minor violation of gracious speech. What's the big deal? Why does Paul command us not to grumble? Because it is a seed-sin. It acts like a mustard seed. From it, bigger things grow. Grumbling yields fruit. Its fruits lead to more serious sins. From The Commands of the Apost…
 
We all have our favorite passages of Scripture. These two are among mine. Matthew 5:37: Let your "Yes" be "Yes." and your "No," "No." (NIV) Later James quotes his brother almost word for word. James 5:12: Let your yes be yes and your no be no. (RSV) From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on …
 
The two brothers, Jesus and James, left the church with many of the same messages, exhortations, and commands. One signature tune they share is this: Listen. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase T…
 
Most are familiar with the tradition behind Jesus' words in the above passage. Many sermon illustrations have explained the right of Roman soldiers in Palestine to compel any citizen to carry their equipment for a mile. To enforce the practicality of the life he would have his hearers lead, Jesus said to carry the burden two miles instead. From The…
 
Speaking and listening are intrinsically linked. Not only are the tongue and the ears physically located in close proximity--the back of the tongue and the two inner ears all function within a couple inches of each other--their seemingly opposite function is not opposite at all. They represent the two sides of the same coin. From The Commands of th…
 
It may seem to some as if we have been talking about gracious speech all along. Now we come to a series of ten commands all focused on Christian speech. What more is there to be said? Is the manner in which we talk and use our tongue really of such importance? Yes. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More…
 
Some of the commands are more difficult to write about, and personally for me to feel that I have laid hold of in a helpful way, than others. This is one of those. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purc…
 
Giving comes in many forms. The least important may be financial giving. That is not to say that financial generosity is unimportant, only that it may be far down the list of virtues emphasized in the New Testament. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be f…
 
Humility in our day has fallen on hard times. Such can be said for most of the attributes of Christlikeness. But humility is especially embattled. The contrast between the world's perspective and that of Jesus is drawn with yet starker clarity when we substitute the word Jesus used to describe humility--meekness. From The Commands by Michael Philli…
 
Judy and I try to live by a maxim which is simply stated: If you are not part o f the problem, and not potentially part of the solution, stay out of it. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase The Co…
 
Foolishness and wisdom are mirror opposite traits about which it is easy to make several wrong assumptions. The most serious of these is the assumption that both are somehow inborn. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Vi…
 
The familiar words of 1 Corinthians 13:5 provide an intriguing example where different translations render a passage of Scripture with distinct shades of meaning. The particular phrase of interest to us here reads, Love..."is not irritable or resentful," in the RSV. The NIV has it, Love..."is not easily angered." Finally, the KJV presents the same …
 
Guilelessness is one of the most intriguing of all the New Testament virtues, possibly because guile is not a word we use in everyday conversation. We know generally what it means. But its subtleties and nuances mostly escape us. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar wri…
 
The Sermon on the Mount is astonishing on many levels. In three succinct chapters, Jesus outlined a revolutionary new morality which was henceforth intended to visibly characterize the life lived and the attitudes held by those who would call themselves his followers. From The Commands by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information …
 
This is one of those commands [that is] an "implied" command which we infer from the actual words. What Paul says in 1 Timothy 6:4 is, "If anyone teaches otherwise...he knows nothing; he has a morbid craving for...base suspicions." From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar w…
 
We all want our own way. We would hardly be human if we didn't. Wanting our own way is in the nature of things. If we would live in the region of love, however, which Paul lays out for us in 1 Corinthians 13, we choose not to insist on it. The word "insist" is this command is the sticking point, the stumbling-block to the flesh. From The Commands o…
 
CY and Jacob talk about Tono & Lims’s chaotic winter event, highly coveted glass pens, Wagner’s past Sailor LEs, extra-stiff Pilot nibs, Japan’s largest stationery show, and how Nagahara explained the King Cobra.

What we call common courtesy represents one of the greatest yet overlooked fruits of spiritual maturity. It is not that courtesy alone implies spiritual maturity. Clearly more is involved in maturity than a single virtue. But the reverse is always true: Spiritual maturity will imply courtesy. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. R…
 
The translation of Romans 13:13 is full of interest. It contains relational significance literally every time we encounter another person, whether friend, family member or stranger, whether the meeting is a chance encounter or a lifelong relationship. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information o…
 
One of the fascinating exchanges in the New Testament is recounted in the eighth chapter of Mark's gospel. In it we get a picture of Jesus' frustration with the disciples for not applying themselves to understand. To grasp it, we have to remember the storm at sea that took place after the feeding of the five thousand. From The Commands by Michael P…
 
The term "stumbling block" is familiar to most Christians. We use it in a variety of ways to indicate anything we do or say that in some way hinders or blocks or impedes or "stumbles" the spiritual growth of another. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be …
 
The Bible's commands are so wonderfully diverse...and often unexpected. From the lofty heights of Yield to God and Grow in righteousness, we crash to earth with such unbelievable practicality as, "Associate with the lowly." Truly, the biblical writers leave the self no place to hide. No facet of attitude, character, or conduct is left untouched by …
 
One of the most striking aspects of the command against judgment is that the entire Old Testament image of God was as a fierce and unyielding Judge. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase The Comman…

Ours is a lethally superficial age. In an era of superhuman technological achievement, the facility to think judiciously is on the endangered skills list.

Sometimes the most wonderful scriptural insights are hidden in the most obscure words or phrases. We find one of these in the passage 2 Corinthians 6:11-13. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase Th…

From home and family relationships, the apostolic commands widen to embrace all relationships. As Christian ministry begins in the home and expands into the church, so too does the capacity and training to treat others in ways that reflect Christlikeness. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More informati…
 
Without reading more meaning than probably exists into workmen being worthy of their hire, or elders being worthy of double honor, nowhere in the New Testament can we identify the precedent of huge church budgets for buildings, administrative staffs, music teams, or even paid clergy. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Mi…
 
The commands slice into our flesh in many ways. They slice uniquely and personally into my flesh at precisely the point of my rebellion and my independence. They will slice into your flesh in different ways than they do mine. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read by Michael Kimball. More information on this and similar writing…
 
It is now time to consider the third most frequently given group of Commands that Jesus gave behind Watchfulness and Courage which were considered earlier. That is a group of related exhortations that might be summed up as: Listen with understanding and discerning insight. These we will consider as four related commands: Listen, Listen carefully, B…

More information on this and similar writings may be found at Father of the Inklings. Visit Amazon to purchase The Commands of the Apostles and other books by…
 
If it is a cliche to say that the family is under attack, it is because it is so desperately true. These are perilous times for the values that hold marriage and the family together. The assault is not primarily one of ideas, as important as that is, it is an attack against relationships. From The Commands of the Apostles by Michael Phillips. Read …
 
The Gospel does not come to us one-dimensionally. The teachings of Jesus, while epitomizing simplicity itself, are also intriguingly complex. The intertwining mix of "spiritual" and "temporal" commands is constantly in play. The moment we get too spiritual, Jesus hits us with the parable of the Good Samaritan, urging us simply to be good and take c…
 
If husbands have to recognize servanthood rather than authority as the foundation of their role, where does a wife's half of the servanthood equation begin?

It has almost become a cliche in our time to declare that, "the institution of marriage is under attack." It is a cliche because it is true.

More information on this and similar writings may be foun…
 
Though we have taken the two letters to the Thessalonians as our starting point for the next series of commands, Paul does not directly address home and family issues to a great extent in those letters. Most of his family-specific commands come later, notably in Ephesians and Colossians as well as, interestingly, in the letters to the two single me…
