Last week we started a new series on the book of Philippians. Paul was writing to his dear friends in the city of Philippi while he was under arrest in Rome. In his letter, Paul describes how every setback and challenge in his life was an opportunity to live for Christ. Paul’s words were more than just mere theory, he wrote this letter while chained to Roman guards. This message, as we study Philippians, we’ll learn about how to keep a Christ-centered perspective in everyday life. Read Philippians 1:12-26 for this message.

This sermon, our message from Philippians will be about Christ-centered friendship. Especially now more than ever right now, friendships and relationships are something we can’t take for granted. In times of difficulty, friends can make all the difference. We see that in Paul’s life throughout the many trials he experienced. We’ll see in Philippians that Paul's friendships were a huge part of his ability to thrive in trials and were core to his effectiveness in ministry. Read Philippians 4:10-23 for this message

This message we’ll continue in our study of Philippians. The big idea of this whole book is Paul encouraging us to stand firm, even when things around us are uncertain. What a perfect book for us to be studying in 2020! We’re starting into Chapter 4 of Philippians this sermon, in which we learn that as Christians we have everything we need to stand firm in an uncertain world because of knowing Christ and being found in Him. Read Philippians 4:1-9 for this sermon

This sermon in Philippians is all about perseverance. It’s amazing how the Bible is so timeless and relevant to life today, in ways we couldn’t have even pictured when we planned this series on Philippians. As we finish chapter 3 of Philippians, Paul reminds us to follow his example. He reminds us that we are citizens of heaven, and we have a place with God beyond this life. It’s living with this perspective that allows us to persevere with our eyes fixed on God….no matter what comes our way. Read Philippians 3:15-4:1 to be ready for this message.
