2017 ~ Joyful New Year!

We begin 2017 with a two-month sermon series from the letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Philippi, the first church God planted on the continent of Europe!  In the past, I’ve always emphasized the incredible “joy” we see in every corner of this “prison” epistle.  But, lately, I’ve noticed another theme: “Work!”  This includes both God’s work and ours.  How do our human efforts dovetail with God divine efforts to produce the fruit of joy?  Let’s “work” our way through Philippians and find out!

 

 

                   “Righteousness Work” (Philippians 3:1-11) Just where does righteousness originate?  Our efforts?  Or God’s grace work? Come find out!

Feb. 12       “Ownership Work”  (Philippians 3:12—4:1)  If righteousness is a gift of God, how do we divide up the work load?  What does God do?  What do we do?  What does it mean to be a citizen of heaven?

Feb. 19 “Peace Work” (Philippians 4:2-9)  Can’t we all just get along?  Who’s job is it to bring peace to our hearts and peace into our relationships?

Feb. 26 “Providing Work”  (Philippians 4:10-23) Can we count on God’s promise to provide for us?  What did Paul mean when he said, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus”?  Is it a blanket promise?

 

May God bless us as we do His “work” in 2017!
