Together for the Gospel

Contentment: Give And Support For The Gospel

Philippians 4:13-14

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction

Summary

Today Pastor Brian reminded us of the most important characteristic of participating in the greater progress of the gospel, contentment in Christ. The satisfaction we find in Jesus gives us the strength to walk through any circumstance. It also gives us the power to sacrificially give in support of the spread of the gospel.

Discussion

  • What stood out to you most from today’s sermon?
  • Describe a difficult circumstance when you struggled to keep your satisfaction in Jesus. What did God teach you?
  • Describe a time of abundance and prosperity. How can we look to Jesus as our real satisfaction in good times? Why is this important?
  • How does contentment revive you and offer a joy to sacrificially give and support the Bigger-Story of God?

Prayer

Pray for God to give you the strength to support the work of the gospel in our community. Confess where you have fallen short. Ask God to lead you to find real satisfaction in Jesus. Commit to sacrificially giving to support all that God is doing to spread the gospel through Valley View Church.
