Chuck Swindoll

Three Cheers for the Church, Part 2

March 8, 2023

Churches are like lighthouses in communities, shining the light of God’s Word and sharing the reality of His love in practical ways.

Yet, it’s easy to become cynical after a disappointing church experience. That doesn’t mean you should throw the baby out with the bathwater, though!

Pastor Chuck Swindoll shares from Philippians 1:1–18 and 23–27 that even the apostle Paul experienced disillusionment with those in the church. Consider what Paul concluded, and let your perspective be renewed as you listen.

Every believer should await Christ’s return with eagerness. But some have gone too far by speculating it will happen in this or that generation, year, or even day. Predictably, when the day came and Christ didn’t appear, those who set their hearts on a specific time for Jesus’ return were disillusioned. The Bible instructs Christians that no one knows the hour of Christ’s coming, not even the angels in heaven! From Mark, Luke, 1 Corinthians, and Titus, Pastor Chuck Swindoll helps believers know what they should focus upon to be faithful servants until Christ returns.
