Will God Really Meet Our Needs? (Philippians 4:14-20)
Take a minute and think very carefully about what your needs are. If you can survive without something it is not a need. When we boil it all down our basic needs are very simple. God calls for those of us to trust him to be generous and in so doing to trust him to meet our needs. The question for each of us is simply this, are we more dependent on our ability to earn income, than we are our ability to truly trust God?

    Mystery Solved (Philippians 4:10-13)
    It does not even take an astute observer to realize that our 21st Century American culture is based on consumerism. We are told we need the latest, greatest, newest, fastest, if we are going to be satisfied. And then if we get it, we are quickly reminded that a newer more improved model is on the way. In our passage today we discover the value of God centered contentment. It is the true path toward satisfaction.

    Staying True to… (Philippians 3:17-4:1)
    A very common current phrase is “stay true to yourself.” It is a phrase that leans toward an individualistic approach to life in which one does not let someone else’s standards define who they are. In one sense there is health there. In another sense it is very self focused. We need balance.

    Too Soon to Quit (Phil 3:12-16)
    Time and again we have been challenged or inspired by those who have completed a race or some other task against all odds. We celebrate the one who gives that final push to the end regardless the obstacle. Do we have that same drive, that same push in our spiritual lives? Are we tempted to ease up at times? Paul reminds us in this passage that it is always too soon to quit in the pursuit of excellence in our relationship with Jesus.

    Evaluating Our Priorities (Philippians 3:1-11)
    Many of us have this desire to know our ancestry. Part of that is a curiosity to know our background and part of that is sometimes a desire to be related to someone famous. As interesting as it is to know where we come from or what our DNA test tells us about our background, we need to be careful to not make our pedigree some kind of idol. We will learn today that in light of Christ we all need to rethink our priorities.

    Two Really Good Guys (Philippians 2:19-30)
    We each have people who have been and may even continue to be role models for us. Role models don’t go out and apply for the job. They just become, due to their faithfulness, their integrity, their grit, and their positive influence in the lives of those who follow them. In our passage today we learn about two guys that Paul put forth as role models for living in a manner worthy of the gospel.

    Making A Difference (Philippians 2:12-18)
    We are very good about making life about us. There is an old adage that there is no “I” in Team. To which someone quipped, but there is a “me.” When we follow Jesus, it is about him. When we look at all we have in Christ, that we did not earn, we begin to understand that when life is not about me, but about us that there is unity that both encourages and strengthens us all as followers of Jesus.

    Worthy of the Gospel (Philippians 1:19-30)
    What does it mean to live a life worthy of the Gospel? To answer that question we will need to understand the concept of Gospel as more than just the good news of Jesus, but as that news which empowers us for daily living. We will need to understand the fact that Gospel is not always a life of ease and comfort and blessing...it is sometimes trials.
