Philippians: Discovering God in the Midst of Life
In today’s Sunday Sermon, Dave begins a new series on the book of Philippians. To begin, let’s ask ourselves a question: “Have I ever been hungry for God’s Word?” Do you ever wake up in the morning absolutely craving to read the Bible just like how you’d crave that steaming cup of coffee or bowl Lucky Charms? For Christians, God’s Word and the relationship between Him and us should be like a refuge or an oasis. It’s understandable that this hunger for God’s Word doesn’t happen every single day, but we should pray about it!
Paul writes of a fantastic illustration of what it is to be true servant of Christ in the book of Philippians. What first pops into mind when you think of servants today? We may have a “typical” image of what a servant may look like, but Paul is talking about a servant of the Church. In beginning of Philippians, Paul describes himself as a servant and further on in the sermon, we can find out how Paul’s role as a servant has served the kingdom of God.
