    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.

    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

    Fighting For The Bottom: God’s Pathway To Unity Pt.2
    Series: UNITY
    As we continue to fight for the bottom and embrace a life of humility, we can look to Jesus who gave us the perfect example of humility. Jesus, being fully God and fully man, chose to lay aside the glory of heaven and embrace a human body. He also was willing to die the worst death at that time by going to the brutal cross. He did all this to take the wrath of God that we deserved. We should lay aside our pride and embrace a live of humility so we can be unified for the sake of the gospel.

    Fighting For The Bottom: God’s Pathway To Unity Pt.1
    Series: UNITY
    As believers, we are suppose to reflect Christ in the way we have compassion toward others, the way we think, and by our humility. These Christian virtues are not something that we can muster up on our own. It takes the Holy Spirit inside of us to work these virtues in our hearts. As we humble ourselves and seek to become more like Jesus, may we come together in unity to display and declare the good news of Jesus to those around us.
    Scripture: Philippians 2:1-4

    Worthy
    Series: UNITY
    In Paul's writings, he often spends time explaining the character of God and then calls the reader to action. In this passage of Scripture, we are called to live lives worthy of the name of Jesus. Even during times of suffering, we can live worthy, courageous lives by reflecting on the eternal good of the person of Jesus and by knowing that our citizenship is not on earth but in heaven.

    Living For The Advancement Of The Gospel Pt.2
    Series: UNITY
    In his letter to the Philippian church, Paul encourages them that the gospel advances by the example and obedience of God's people. The same is true for us today. When we die to ourselves daily, we are killing the selfish inside us which is the essence of sin. We all can live unselfish lives that advance the gospel of Jesus Christ for the glory of our Savior, the good of the saints, and the good of the lost.
    Scripture: Philippians 1:18-26

    Living For The Advancement Of The Gospel Pt.1
    Series: UNITY
    Many today struggle with finding the true reason for their existence, but we are here to glorify and delight in God and help others to do the same. One of the primary ways we can do all of this is by living for the advancement of the gospel. The gospel advances by the lives and examples of God’s people regardless of the circumstances. Let's live lives worth shadowing and point people to Jesus.
    Scripture: Philippians 1:12-18
