Our series takes a different turn this week. The message is titled “DEFINING GOSPEL.” We have been examining Paul’s relationship with the Philippian believers. This week, we are taking a look at Paul’s usage of the word “gospel.” If Paul looks at everything through the lens of the gospel, then we must understand what he means by the term if we are to rightly interpret the rest of the book.
This weekend, our message is titled “STEADFAST.” Paul encouraged the Philippians to stand up under persecution and maintain an eternal perspective on the sufferings of life. He tells them to remain steadfast, but it’s not an individualistic command. Paul tells the Philippians to stand firm together, being unified for the sake of the gospel.
This weekend’s message is titled “PERSPECTIVE.” Paul told the Philippians that everything that happened to him, both good and bad, served to spread the gospel. He even said that God used those who were preaching out of a spirit of competition with Paul to get the message of salvation to the nations.
The title of this message is “GUARANTEED.” Paul wanted the Philippians to understand that God would not start doing something in their lives that He didn’t intend to finish. He is a God who brings things to completion.
