In today's passage, Paul moves from sharing about his own circumstances to to those of the Philippians. He has been preparing them to see their situation with a gospel-centered perspective-how to live worthy of the gospel. Two things stand out. First, we must have blodness in the midst of opposition. Second, we must have unity in the midst of division. The key to unity is humility.

Paul not only past discusses his circumstances in light of the gospel but also his future ones as well. Paul is certain that he will experience the deliverance of God but he is not referring to being released form prison. He also shares his great dilemma-whether to continue to serve Christ or depart and be with Christ. This passage is remarkably helpful as we wrestle with life's purpose as well as thinking of the after life.

As we move into the heart of the letter to the Phillippians,Paul shares his circumstances with them. However, Paul is doing more than relating information, he is modeling for them how to view one's circumstances in light of priority of the gospel. In whatever situation God wants to use us to advance the gospel if we will be available.

After sharing his deep affection for the Phillippians, Paul prays on behalf of them. We have much to learn from this intercessary prayer. Though brief, each phase is loaded with important truth that informs and empowers our prayers.

Prayer is so vital. However, prayer is one of our biggest struggles n the Christian life. Fortunately, God give us models for us to follow. We have one here in this passage. The first part concerns thankfulness. We'll see why Paul was thankful and what that means for our prayer loves.

Being a faithful servant of God-or slave of God, as Pastor Bryan taught last week-is our response to the amazing gift of eternal life He offers. Like the servants in Jesus'parable of the Talents, we either receive what He offers and gain the blessing of doing His work in this world, or we reject His offer and lose all. When each of us individually move forward in our lives as the Lord directs, we as a church will impact our community and the world for Him beyond what we can imagine. And we also experience tha abundant life Jesus promises- a meaningful life, full of joy, in God's blessing and fellowship with one another. Even more, we anticipate that day when we will meet Him face to face, and long to hear those wonderful words,"Well done, good and faithful servant..Enter into the joy of your Master."

Are You a Saint? The greetings of Paul's letters are often packed with important truths that we should not skip over. For one thing, Paul, as he often does,in his letters calls the believers "saints." Most people assume saints are elite Christians but the new testament teaches otherwise. What does that mean? Also, we read Paul's customary greeting: grace to you and peace. These are not just a nice way of saying hello but speak of deep Christian truths.

In Christian circles, people often gladly identify themselves as "servant" of Christ. Certainly, this is true, but scripture also gives another description that goes even deeper: slave of Christ. We explore this powerful metapher that is widely used in scripture and what this means for Christian living

In this message, we explore the fascinating background to the book of Philippians. The church at Philippi began on Paul's second missionary journey after he received a vision from God. Once there, Paul discovers both people ready to receive the gospel and to perseute them. This and other information, helps us to understand Philippians much more next week
