Most Recent Sermon: | Grace Reformed Church
Like I said last week, we simply weren’t able to address all that was in this brief passage in a single sermon, so we return to it today, this section, verses 27-30. We will focus on the second half of verse 28 through verse 30, but I’d like to back up and start reading again at verse 27 and continue through the end of the chapter, actually making it the exact same text we read last week. Listen, this is God’s Holy Word. Philippians 1, starting at verse 27.
The Word comes to us today again from Philippians. We are planning to continue in Philippians until after Thanksgiving, when we’ll have a series of Advent sermons, and then pick Philippians back up after Christmas. I hope you are enjoying this study as much as I am, listening as Paul teaches the Philippian church and our church what it means to be the church. That’s what we’re hearing week after week. Last week, looking at verses 21-26, we were reminded about what we are once we’re in Christ. Both life and death at that point can be looked at not with fear, but with joy and hope.
God’s Word comes to us again today from Paul’s letter to the Philippians, that joyful letter that we’ve been looking at for several weeks now. Thanks to Henry for bringing the Word last week through the meditations of Ligon Duncan. It is convenient that I am learning a lot from Dr. Duncan by reading his and others’ Philippians sermons as I prepare these, so it works out well if I’m gone to have one of those read, so thanks Henry for doing that. Now listen, this is God’s Holy Word.
