Thankful In Thankless Times Pt. 2
Series: UNITY
Paul explains in his prayer of thanksgiving that God is the one who began the good work of salvation in us. God is also faithful to finish our salvation in glorification. If the Holy Spirit did not draw us to Himself, then we would not have sought after Him. When God saved us, He brought us into His family. Let us be thankful for the work He continues to do in us to make us more like Jesus, and let's be thankful for the Christian relationships He has given us.
Scripture: Philippians 1:7-11

    Thankful In Thankless Times Pt. 1
    Series: UNITY
     Even though Paul was writing from prison, he was still able to be thankful. He was thankful to the church of Philippi for their partnership in the gospel. As we partner together and with Jesus Christ to further His gospel, we can be thankful in the thankless times we are living in. May our partnership be real and redemptive for the glory of Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: Philippians 1:3-7

    UNITY: An Introduction To Philippians
    Series: UNITY
    As Paul was writing from prison, he urged the church toward unity for the sake of the gospel. If the church can come together to further the Kingdom of Jesus, true joy will be experienced in the life of each believer. Paul began his letter by identifying as a slave of Jesus Christ. In doing so, he reminded us all of our relationship to the Master. Let's embrace this calling to be slaves of Jesus Christ and be unified in our mission to love God, love people and love our world by displaying and declaring the Good News of Jesus.
    Philippians 1:1-2

    All In: Doing Gospel-Centered Ministry Pt.2
    Paul compared the Christian life to an athlete preparing for the Olympic Games. It takes a lot of self-control and self-disciple to be a follower of Jesus. We need to remember that we were saved to save. Jesus broke our chains of slavery to sin. Let's share that good news with others and pray that He too would free them from their bondage to sin. There is power in Jesus' name to break every chain.
    I Corinthians 9:24-27

    All In: Doing Gospel-Centered Ministry Pt.1
    The great news of the gospel is that Jesus Christ suffered on the cross and endured God's wrath in our place. When we trust Jesus as our Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit regenerates our hearts, we are freed from the bondage of sin and penalty of the Law. Our freedom is suppose to be used to serve others and reach out to others with the gospel of Jesus. We are to meet them where they are and use our freedom to be a co-laborer with Christ and be a light that points people to Jesus.
    Scripture: I Corinthians 9:18-27

    Righteous Living In An Unrighteous World Pt. 2
    As we continue looking through Psalm 1, we see the profile of the blessed man (or woman). In contrast to the wicked, the blessed man is fruitful and prosperous in all he does for the Kingdom. The wicked are useless like chaff. There are only two types of people: the wicked that are thrown out like chaff to be burned. Or the righteous that are firmly planted in God's Word and will have a fruitful life that will make much of Jesus. Which will you choose to be?
    Scripture: Psalm 1

    Righteous Living In An Unrighteous World Pt.1
    The book of Psalms begins with a call to holiness. The Psalmist warns the reader that sin can take root in a person's heart as the individual becomes more involved in it. Jesus provided a way to live a righteous life. As we stay close to Jesus and seek to make much of Him, we will live a pure and holy life. We will be made more like Jesus. Let's pursue Jesus. Let's stay close and stay clean.
    Scripture: Psalm 1

    Breaking The Meta
    Christianity in today's time is very similar to that of Jesus' time. There are many traditions and ways of doing things that men and women have established as the norm. When Jesus came to earth, He challenged many of those man-made traditions and introduced a new way to reach people with the good news. As a church, let's follow Jesus' example and be willing to break the metas that have been established in our church culture to love God, love people and love our world

    Real People
    It's very easy to come across passages of Scripture and skip over the lists of names, but each name represents a person that God used to further His plan of redemption. In Romans 16, we see how the early church was made up of a variety of people with different backgrounds, social statuses and races. God uses real people to further His Kingdom, and He desires to use us to build His kingdom here.
    Scripture: Romans 16
