We are moving forward. Some of you are finishing up the last section of the stewardship book and some of you are moving forward into Philippians. Over the past years, in Life Groups, we have never handled a specific book of the bible to journey though together as a group. I am excited about Philippians because this letter paints a picture of what it looks like when Christ is the Center of your life.
Here’s a fly by of the upcoming five lessons:
Lesson One: Whatever circumstance that we go through, whether good or bad, we can have complete joy in Christ. (1:1-20)
Lesson Two: Our purpose in life is to live as Christ. (1:21-30)
Lesson Three: How do we live like Christ? With humility. (2:1-30)
Lesson Four: We understand the purpose of life. (3:1-21)
Lesson Five: Joy with contentment. (4:1-23)
My hope is that each of you will be able to walk away and understand the truths communicated in the book of Philippians and apply them to your life. I promise you if you apply the truths in Philippians you will be a better husband, wife, coworker, etc… but this doesn’t happen without application and accountability.
Throughout these next coming weeks my goal is to provide you with little illustrations, reminders, or nuggets on Paul’s letter so that we might truly place Christ at the center of our lives.
In closing, keep in mind the words of Paul, “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”
