Sermons on Philippians
An introduction to Philippians 1:18-26. The Apostle Paul's reckless abandonment led to abundant life.
In Philippians 1:1Paul's greeting cultivates: 1. Christ Exalting Humility 2. Christ Exalting Unity "Remember that the Master who calls you into blessed slavery is the Savior who purchased you for eternity!"
How serious is the sin of complaining? We all have some bad habits when it comes to our attitudes, but can those attitudes be serious enough to keep us from heaven? Really? Well, Paul seems awfully concerned that it could.
What does the process of sanctification look like? How do we go about it? It seems like we can rest in the assurance that God will complete His good work in us. But it also seems like we must be trying with effort to change sinful behaviors and patterns that continue to mask and mute our witness. So, how do we go about the process of transformation?
The Joyful Advancement of the Gospel in the midst of Suffering comes from - 1. Confidence in God's Providential Plan
We can rejoice with confidence in our confinement here on Earth as Christ's ambassadors - Philippians 1.14
In Philippians 1:12-13 God was Providentially: 1. Removing Obstacles through Paul's Predicament 2. Reaching Sinners through Paul's Imprisonment In Philippians 1:12-13 we learn that the Gospel is unstoppable.
Is there a "peace" available to us no matter the circumstances in our lives? Can we actually have an emotional stability in the midst of the storms that will come into our lives? Paul seems to think so. Jesus Christ does as well. In this sermon we will discuss the definition of peace, the counterfeit of peace, the enemy of peace and the recipe for peace in our lives.
In Philippians 1:3-5 Paul joyfully give thanks for those who partner with us personally in Christ’s service. Joyful Thanksgiving Flows out of: Personal Memories - v. 3 Prayerful Ministries - v. 4 Personal Ministries - v. 5
Paul, in the conclusion to his letter, is filled with joy as he reflects upon the love his Philippian church has shown to him. But Paul is not overjoyed with their gift, or even for their remembrance of him, although that certainly must have felt good. Paul expresses joy because they were partnering with him in the Gospel. They were beginning to step out into the life of missional risk and extravagant generosity of spirit that had characterized Paul's life as well. They were beginning to live like Jesus.
