Joy in Unity

It is a beautiful thing when people unite in harmony and love. Selfish desires, personal preferences, and status become unimportant when people come together. Unity isn’t easy to achieve, but it can happen when a group of believers join in Jesus’ name. There is joy in unity. Sermon Text: Philippians 2:1-4

Joy in Sharing The Good News

God created individuals with different personalities, abilities, and interests. That’s why we all proclaim and share Jesus differently. Preachers have different styles and churches have different types of worship music, but what really matters is that the true Word of God is shared with our community. No matter what it looks like, we can find joy when Christ is proclaimed. Sermon Text: Philippians 1:18

Joy in Teamwork

Humans are meant to be together, uniting in teamwork. God did not create us to be alone. When we work together in our families, with our coworkers, or on a sports team, we can find joy in teamwork. This joy is multiplied when we join as brothers and sisters in Christ, joining Jesus on his mission and sharing His good news. Sermon Text: Philippians 1:3-6

Faith Makes Us Encourage One Another

Paul and the Philippians enjoyed a wonderful relationship: they were gospel partners (fellowship) in ministry. He was not afraid to ask them for help and they were eager to give him support. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:10-20

Faith Believes that Dying is to Live

Christians have the best attitude about life and death. Every day is a joy, because we have a purpose – to live for Christ. And when we die? That’s even better by far. Philippians 1:18b-26

Empty Life

When we’re looking for meaning and purpose in life, the empty tomb shows us how to work for things that really last. Sermon Text: Philippians 3

A Different Kind of King

Our sin is disgraceful. Everything that happened to Jesus—who humbled himself and became obedient to death, even death on a cross—that all should have happened to us. Yet, because of Jesus willing, humble obedience, we are honored in God’s eyes.

“I Have No Power”

When a person feels they have no power or control, fear and hopelessness rob them of any desire to change. God is our strength and deliverer. Philippians 4:10-13

Sharing

As members of God’s family we share our concern for one another, we share our resources with those in need, we share God’s promise that he will always take care of us and meet all our needs. Confidence in God leads to contentment and lasting peace. In this way we can always stay at rest in God’s promises no matter what we face here in this world as we press on toward our real home in heaven. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:10-20

Rejoicing – Keep Calm and Rejoice On

Anxiety can feel crippling. Constant worry can make us want to pull the covers over our head. But God promises to guard our hearts and minds with the peace that transcends all human understanding. As we take God up on his invitation to pray, he wants to replace our worrying with rejoicing. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:4-9

Straining

The most important part of getting spiritually unstuck often is forgetting what is behind, and straining toward what is ahead. We see this especially in the life of the Apostle Paul whose life was radically changed by God when he realized that he could never earn his way into heaven by striving harder and harder. In fact, Paul started moving forward in his faith only when he understood clearly that he could stop striving to earn heaven because it was earned by Christ’s perfect striving. Sermon Text: Philippians 3:17-14

Shining

God’s plan instead is to work in us to change our attitudes and our actions, to bring us closer to him, so that we can shine like stars as we hold out his word of life to our dying world. Sermon Text: Philippians 2:12-18
