February 18, 2018: The Faithful One!

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.
