Let Your Light Shine

Sometimes doing good just isn’t enough.  We need to do more than that.


In this message, Phil shares principles from the powerful “call to action” from Paul in Ephesians 2:10.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

And then Phil unpacks the “call to action” from Jesus himself, from Matthew 5:16.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Embrace the Mystery

In this teaching session, Phil speaks on the subject of living by faith, not sight.

(Eastside Church, Sunday 17th November 2013)



We have to confess our faith, not based on what we see but on the hope that resonates inside us.

Don’t let a delay rob you of the blessing God has promised you.  You will allow yourself to be robbed if your words contradict the promises of God.

Stay in agreement with what God says.
