Book of Philippians
Philippians is a beloved book of the Bible and for good reason! It is full of joy, warmth and friendship. In this series we refer to the "5G Network" which is "The
"The Philippian's 5G Network"
. Philippians is well known for being a very joyful book! However this letter is actually not about joy, but about that which causes or produces joy. What is that secret of joy? Paul makes it clear in his opening remarks.
"Getting Our Priorities Straight"
. What are you passionate about? You may have various hobbies and interests - but is the Gospel your #1 priority? This sermon explores what it looks like to live a gospel-centered life.
"Living the God Life."
You will have no problem finding promises of the "good life." But how about the God life? This message explores what it looks like to live as citizen's in the Kingdom of God.
"Down is Up and Up is Down."
. The Philippian church struggled with disunity. How can they replace their pride with humility? They need to adopt the attitude of humble Jesus! (Palm Sunday Message)
"The Achilles Heel of the Church"
. Paul continues his discussion about disunity by addressing the specific areas of grumbling and arguing. Such sins are often overlooked as annoying but not particularly dangerous. Paul refutes such logic by showing how a complaining spirit can negate the gospel itself!
"Role Models for Ministry!"
. In a rather unusual passage, Paul details the travel plans of himself and two associates. As role models for us - they paint a picture of gospel-centered living.
"The Power of His Resurrection."
. If you were to die and stand before God - and if He asked, "Why should I let you into heaven?" What would you say? Is your spiritual resume weighty enough to impress the Almighty? Listen into this sermon to find out what is required to turn the key in the gate of heaven. (Easter Message)
Do you like to run? It is a powerful metaphor of the Christian life. Paul calls the church to follow his example as he forgets what is behind and presses on toward the goal! Guest Preacher: Pastor Dave Hentschel.
"When Peace Falls to Pieces."
What do you do when conflict reigns? When believer's fight? Paul addresses two leaders in the church who could not get along, and his instructions have been priceless to the Church ever since.
"The Secret of Contentment - Paul's Thank You Note - Part 1."
While Paul is thankful for the Philippian's gift, he tells them that he really didn't need it because God had already given him perfect contentment! Would you like to be perfectly content? The secret is given here.
"A Gift Within a Gift - Paul's Thank You Note - Part 2."
Paul finishes his expression of gratitude for the Philippians's gift - and in this passage we learn six characteristics of godly giving. Then, Paul finishes his letter with a beautiful benediction - which takes us full circle - back to the 5G Network we started with!
