Enjoy this excerpt from today’s sermon focusing on Philippians 1:27-30. And following you will find links to our devotional pdf’s for this message and all the others in our “Partners and Partakers” series.
The takeaways for us as a young church are clear.
Our penalty of sin has been paid.
Jesus’ goodness has been given to us.
We are privileged to follow Jesus’ life.
Therefore we will suffer for His sake with a hope and expectation of future grace.
And as we grow in unity in believing these things, we will own a spirit of freedom that will enable us to obey the scriptures, serve God, serve one another, and serve our community. And we do this without fear, why? Because we are already accepted by God in and through Jesus Christ. And we will do these things not out of guilt. No, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
We will believe, obey, suffer, serve, and worship out of heart of gratitude and together we will strive for the Gospel. We will have…
A gratitude for the Father and His grace to choose us.
A gratitude for Jesus who suffered to provide salvation for us.
A gratitude for the Holy Spirit who lives within us and guides us towards greater worship and service of God.
