Matt Chandler

The story begins in Philippi, where Paul introduces three individuals that were all enslaved by the kind of things we often choose over the gospel. Lydia, the business woman, the slave girl, the jailer Their lives portray dysfunction and emptiness but are totally transformed by the gospel. True joy and Christ’s love begin to live within them, giving them a life of purpose. In fact, Paul himself was enslaved and then by God’s grace and mercy he could pen these popular and profound words: “to live is Christ, and to die is gain” and “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” In one of the most intimate of Paul’s letters, Matt Chandler, over twelve 30-minute sessions, paints a picture of what it is to be a mature Christian.
