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.

    Something Bigger in Mind (Philippians 1:12-19)
    It is easy at times to simply focus on our circumstances and miss the fact that God, who is always at work, typically has something bigger in mind. It is when we can take a step back from what we are facing that we may get a glimpse of what God is doing. The Apostle Paul does this in our passage today and as a result can remind the Philippian church that when our unfortunate circumstances serve to advance the Gospel of Jesus, it is a far greater thing than we often realize.

    Partners in God’s Work (Philippians 1:1-11)
    Philippians is a letter written to a young church from an imprisoned Apostle Paul. He knows what it is like to be bound up inside, as he was in prison in his own house for about two years. We will discover in this book, that while he views his imprisonment from the standpoint of reality, he also has the long view in mind. It is in the long view of our struggles that we can discover the power of real joy. It is about God, not me.
