Together for the Gospel

HUMILITY: LIVE WORTHY OF GOSPEL
Philippians 1:27

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,

Summary

Today Pastor Brian taught that we should be unified as citizens of heaven. Our lives, our concerns, our purpose, and our individual agendas should all reflect our heavenly citizenship. In order to fulfill our purposes, we must be unified. That unity only comes through humility.

  • Group unity is produced by individual humility.
  • Unity comes when we both lay down our personal desire or preference and in humility unify around a larger purpose.
  • To maintain unity, we must: Be of the same mind, Maintain same love, Be united in spirit, & Be intent on one purpose
  • Humility comes before exaltation.

Discussion

  • How do we live a life that demonstrates being worthy of the Gospel?
  • What does this humility look like in your life?
  • Share a story of a time when you felt united with group or team?

Prayer

Pray together with those in your home. Thank God for his love that unites us. Ask Him to reveal way that you can humble yourselves. Commit to laying down your own desires for the unity of Gods people.
