Philippians series message 1
Text: Philippians 1:1-6
When a guy writes about joy from prison, it's time to listen up. Paul shows us how Christian joy increases as we follow Christ, no matter our circumstances.
Three key concepts:
1) His thoughts toward us (vs. 2): our feelings of inadequacy or unworthiness can be crushing at times.
2) Partnership (vs. 5): pretty much our emphasis on discipleship - we all play a part.
3) His faithfulness (vs. 6): He won't let go, He's with us in the storm, and thank GOD our standing is based on Christ's performance and not ours.
