May 13, 2018: Are YOU a Moralist?

Philippians series message 12

Text: Philippians 3:1-11

The Gospel flies in the face of what most of us conceive our relationship to God to be predicated upon. Not my merits, but His. Jesus' finished work on Calvary. Grace. Even as believers, it's super-easy to fall back into the old way of thinking - somehow, some way, I've got to bring something to the table to "pay the rent" and keep this good standing intact. So here we find a passage dedicated to putting no confidence in the flesh, and glorying in Christ. We'll take two or three weeks on this passage; it's important and very applicable to parenting - raising moralists is not the same as raising a grace filled and bold generation for Christ.
