Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus: To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons. 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you, 4 always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 7 Indeed, it is right for me to think this way about all of you, because I have you in my heart, and you are all partners with me in grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. 8 For God is my witness, how deeply I miss all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, 10 so that you may approve the things that are superior and may be pure and blameless in the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God.
Our Gospel Identity
“Some of us need to pause and realize that there is nothing we have to do to earn God’s grace.”
“The gospel frees us to be honest about our sin because our past doesn’t define us, Jesus defines us.”
“Pastor, you’re not defined by your performance.”
Our Gospel Partnership
“There is a supernatural affection for one another that comes because we partner around the gospel.”
“Prayer is a reminder through the gospel that we can’t, but he can.”
“When you’re pleading with difficult sinners in difficult situations your confidence had better be in the gospel and not in people.”
“I have no bread. But the beauty of the gospel is this, that because of the finished work of Jesus Christ I know exactly where to go for bread.”
