Sermon Title: The Path To True Unity

Scripture: Philippians 2:1–11

  

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series from the book of Philippians by looking at Paul’s writing on unity.

  1. True Unity Is Found In The Pursuit Of Humility
  2. True Humility Is Found In The Person Of Jesus

Going Deeper:

 

  • While the division among people is not new, we have many hot button issues that divide us in 2021. How do you experience this division in your extended family or in your workplace?
  • Pastor David shared that the secret to Christian unity is found in the pursuit of true Christian humility. Which of the 5 gospel blessings in Philippians 2:1–4 do you need to embrace above your own preferences and opinions? How can you magnify what brings you together with other Christians?
  • Paul reminded the Christians in Philippi that true Christian humility is found by gazing at the person of Jesus. How can the words of Philippians 2:5–11 be your guide toward deeper humility?
  • Pastor David shared these words from British pastor Charles Spurgeon: “Pride cannot live beneath the cross. Let us sit there and learn our lesson, and then rise and carry it out into practice.” What do you need to change this week so you have time to sit beneath the cross, to learn, and then to put these lessons into practice?

Additional Discovery:

   

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. 

~ Ephesians 3:20–21
