We can ALWAYS be content through Christ.
Philippians 4:13 is one of the greatest verses in the Bible and this week Pastor Matt shows us the seemingly impossible truth that it’s EVEN BETTER than we think!
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
BIG IDEA: We can ALWAYS be content through Christ.
1. What is contentment?
2. What is the secret?
Wait for the LORD when it feels like he’s doing nothing.
In week two of our Isaiah series, Pastor Matt unpacks a BIG IDEA we all need remonding of from time to time: Wait for the LORD when it feels like he’s doing nothing.
(1) He is incomparably great (Isaiah 40:12-26)
(2) He will give you what you need (Isaiah 40:27-31)
God’s Family Has Members
This week, pastor Matt Cohen kicks off our August sermon series on “God’s Family” by showing from the Scriptures that “God’s family has members.” The text is Ephesians 2:18-19. He answers the questions, Why join a local church? And, What are the benefits of joining a local church?
For the sake of joy, think like Jesus
In Philippians 2:5 Paul connects the overarching theme of joy to the way that we think: Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus. That brings us to the big idea of our passage this morning: For the sake of joy, think like Jesus. Daily joy comes as we take on the attitude and mindset, the very thinking of Jesus, specifically in the way that we relate to one another. What kind of thinking characterized the king of glory, born in a manger? 1. He thought of others 2. He thought of God 3. He thought of future glory.
Think Like Jesus
Remember the humility of Christ for you and me – fully God he laid down his place in glory to rescue us. He came as a man to serve and was humbly obedient to the point of death. And God exalted him; Jesus reigns forever as the king of Glory!
Be Content Rather Than Striving After The Wind
Be content rather than striving after the wind because for the sake of justice, forming community, and of worship.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!
Sing glory to Jesus!
