March 11, 2018: The Important Thing

Philippians series message 4

Text: Philippians 1:12-18

Have you set your heart to do something godly and then suffered for it? You are actually trying to serve the Lord and bad things happen. In those circumstances, do you ask "WHY???" Paul didn't. He had his grand plans messed up and suffered greatly for it, yet he was tripping over himself to give praise to God. Why is this? Because the Gospel was being advanced in ways he never imagined, and that's all that's all that mattered to him! Paul's resolve and perspective point us to the centrality and power of the Gospel, something we must never forget or diminish. I've especially been reminded of this with Billy Graham's home-.going.
