Introduction to the NEW Sermon Series

The world’s first Christian missionary and his entourage sat in the port city of Troas, waiting for direction from the God who had prompted their mission. They had reached a point that every door they sought to enter had been closed, so they paused and waited for guidance. Guidance came in a vision of a Man from Macedonia, pleading with them to cross over and plant the gospel in the Western world. The group sprang into action and crossed from Asia into Europe, planting the first church in the West in the historic city of Philippi in the Roman province know as Macedonia. Their response to the heavenly vision introduced the gospel to Europe—and through Europe, to America. We Americans owe a debt of gratitude to that original western church. And, the little letter to that church gives us guidance in living out the faith that is part of their legacy to us. Our Declaration of Independence entitles us to “the pursuit of happiness.” Philippians tells us how to live in joy—a word that is found in form or concept over a dozen times in the four brief chapters of this letter. It’s interesting that joy is a dominant theme, since Philippians is written from prison. What we discover is that the secret of joy is found not in circumstances, but in ones relationship with the Savior. Christ still reigns, we still know Him and He knows us; therefore, we can rejoice whatever our circumstances may be. But the overarching theme of Philippians is about THE GREAT PURSUIT that must become the overwhelming passion of our lives. That pursuit: “that I may know Him and become like Him.”
