Anxiety, Peace, And Whatever Is True
We Are All Connected
In Philippians 4 Paul actually singles out two women in the Philippian congregation. These two women were apparently experiencing a conflict severe enough that Paul believed that it could threaten the harmony of the entire community. He calls on these two, whom he identifies as women who have ‘contended at his side for the sake of the gospel,’ to adopt the Christ pattern of thinking, feeling, and acting, which he believes will bring peace to this situation.

Unfinished, But Pressing On
In Philippians 3 Paul has set out his past, and how he had to reevaluate his beliefs after encountering Christ. In vv.12-16, Paul then reminds us that he, like us, is unfinished. We are all on a journey, and we aren’t who we will be. Paul here calls us to see ourselves and our pasts through Christ’s continuing work in us.
Timothy, Epaphroditus, Me, You, And Us
This week Josh continues our series through Philippians by looking at chapter 2v19-30. At first, this seems to be a digression–a personal recommendation for some of Paul’s friends who will visiting Philippi–at that it is. However, it is much more than just a letter of recommendation. In these verses Paul ties together and exemplifies the themes he has been talking about: the Christ pattern of life. Could Paul say the same thing about us that he says about Timothy and Epaphroditus?

The Grace Of Humility
Guest Speaker, George Stull shares from Philippians chapter 2 this week as we continue our “I Will Say It Again” series. We discover the necessity of keeping a humble posture throughout every circumstance like Christ’s attitude. The grace of humility leads us to reflect our great God who has created us for this very purpose; to be his hands as servants to the world.
Life In Philippi
This week Josh wraps up chapter 1 of Philippians. In vv.27-30 Paul shifts from talking about his own struggles and response to focusing on what the Philippians are going through. By placing this passage in context we can get a glimpse of what life was like in 1st century Philippi, and we are also confronted with the challenge that Paul’s words present us today.
