There is a difference between standing firm and standing still. In the course of the Christian life, we are encouraged to press on, take hold of, and focus on one thing. We stand firm in the Lord while completing the work He has for us.
In this passage, Pastor Scott explains how we are saved by faith in Christ alone. No amount of good works can earn us salvation. Instead, we need to rest in what Christ has done for us on the cross.
Here is our entire worship gathering:
In today's sermon, Pastor Scott discusses the ordinary examples of Timothy and Epaphroditus. They showed genuine care and genuine devotion as servants of Christ and friends of Paul. We are all ordinary people, but when we demonstrate selfless humility, we are extraordinary in the eyes of the world and the eyes of God. We must be faithful in the little things.
Watch and listen as Pastor Scott jumps back into the book of Philippians and talks about how the radical, joyful obedience to Christ has been exemplified by many others throughout Christian history.
We learned about the mind-set and attitude of selfless humility last week; this week we see it on full display in the humiliation and exaltation of Christ.
In this passage, we see Paul shift his focus from external conflicts to internal conflicts. The church is under attack and we are called to display selfless humility. Christ is the ultimate example of selfless humility.
Paul identifies several marks of a joyful community that is living a life worthy of the gospel.
See below for the entire worship gathering.
In today's message, Pastor Scott looks at Paul's famous verse, "To me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." We are encouraged to not only live a life for God but to die for God as well.
We continue our study in Philippians by looking at Paul's Joyful Perspective while he is in prison. He takes a divine perspective on his circumstances and his critics. Enjoy!
This book contains the mind-set, attitude, and outlook the believer must have if he or she is going to experience the joy of the Lord in a troubled world.
Pastor Scott explains the origin of the church in Philippi and looks at several characteristics of a joy-filled Christian from Philippians 1:6-11.
