Teaching People the Word of God
A Community of Unity and Humility(Philippians 1:29-30, Philippians 2:1-11)Pastor Blake Wilson, January 31, 2018
Part of the Press On: Joy & Pain series, preached at a Wednesday Evening service
Returning from our new year break we continue with our Wednesday bible study on the book of Philippians. This week we look at Philippians 1:29-30; 2:1-11. At the moment of salvation God grants you the ability to believe. Knowing this should allow believers to walk in unity and humility.

29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake, 30 engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have. (ESV)
2:1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
