Press On: Living In The Now And Not Yet
Series: UNITY
Pressing on for Christ in the now and not yet is essential to becoming like Christ. If we want to pursue Christ effectively we must have a proper perspective, proper plan, and proper attitude. We must look to the Lord regarding our spiritual maturity, and listen to God regarding obstacles in our lives that keep us from growing in Christ.
Scripture: Philippians 3:12-16

    Sold Out Pt. 3
    Series: UNITY
    The more we know the greatness of Jesus Christ and His character, the more we will value Him. That knowledge should lead us to sell out for Him. As we give ourselves fully to Jesus, we will become more like Him. We can know Jesus in the most intimate of ways as we experience the life changing work of justification, sanctification, and one day, glorification.
    Scripture: Philippians 3:7-11

    Sold Out Pt. 2
    Series: UNITY
    When we truly sell to Jesus Christ, we become set apart for God to live for Him. We serve God in the power of His Spirit in us. We boast in Jesus Christ alone and do not put confidence in our flesh. We gain Christ when we value Him above anything else in this world. May we truly give all to Jesus and live sold out lives so that we can draw closer to Him and show and share His Good News to others.
    Scripture: Philippians 3:3-7

    Sold Out Pt.1
    Series: UNITY
    Compliance, complacency, and apathy rob many from selling out to King Jesus, but true righteousness from God results in believers selling out to Jesus. It's very easy in church to start going through the motions. May we as a church realize the miracle of salvation and seek Jesus every day in His Word. Read it. Study it. Memorize it. Meditate on it. Pray through it, and obey it.
    Scripture: Philippians 3:1-2

    Portraits Of A Model Servant
    Series: UNITY
    When Jesus came to earth, He modeled what it meant to be a servant leader. As servants of Christ, we should reflect His characteristics to the world by genuinely caring for others and sacrificial ministry. It's not enough for us talk about loving our community in Jesus' name, we need to live it out. Let's serve each other and our community by displaying and declaring the Good News of Jesus Christ.

    Shine Pt. 3
    Series: UNITY
    In this conclusion of the subject of shining for Christ in our culture, we are reminded that we can influence our generation for Christ by rejoicing that God is still at work. Even when our circumstances seem dark, we must remember that God is sovereignly working out things for His glory and our good. May we shine brightly and rejoice greatly even in the midst of our struggles because God is still good, and He is still working.

    Shine Pt. 2
    Series: UNITY
    In Philippians 2, Paul encouraged the church to shine in the world by not complaining or arguing. In our culture today, we can shine the love of Christ by the way we react to situations in our lives. May we trust in God's sovereignty in such a way that causes us to rejoice in all circumstances.

    Shine Pt.1
    Series: UNITY
    Sanctification (becoming more like Jesus) is a paradoxical process that shows how God enables us to live an obedient lifestyle. We can influence our generation by living out loud and being Christ's letters of recommendation to all who read our lives. We all can live in such a way that when people read our lives, they will marvel at the God at work in us.
    Scripture: Philippians 2:12-13

    The Hope Of Christmas: The King Is Here
    Jesus is the King of kings. He has and always will be. Even as a child, the Magi recognized His kingship, and Herod was terrified of it. As we observe the way the wise men sought Jesus and worshiped Him, we can see that true worship is costly, joyful and from the heart. May we adore and honor Jesus as the true King of kings and Lord of lords.
    Scripture: Matthew 2:1;12

    The Hope Of Christmas: God Came Down
    The virgin birth of Jesus is incredible because Son of God became man so that men can become sons and daughters of God. The humanity of Christ is a widely debated and very complex theological concept but one that is worth celebrating. The fact that God Himself, Jesus Christ, came down from the glory of heaven to live in this darkened world among His own creation, shows how much He loves and cares for us all. Our God is not distant. Jesus is Immanuel - God with us. He took on flesh to be the perfect and ultimate sacrifice to satisfy God's wrath toward sin.
    Scripture: Matthew 1:18-25
