October 1, 2017 Let Everybody Sing Philippians 2:5 Synopsis: My opening prayer today is found in Psalm 25:1-9, NLT. I invite you to join me in prayer. The title for this sermon is inspired by the fact that verses 6-11 contain the words to a hymn of the early church, and I mean really early. “Let Everybody Sing” is an invitation for our assembly to demonstrate harmony of the early church. There three things I want to emphasize from this passage. 1. Paul’s emphasis on Congregational Harmony Everybody in the church needs to be on the same page: 1-4 2. Paul’s emphasis on Learning the Lyrics Everybody in the church needs to know the words: 5-11 3. Paul’s emphasis on Keep on Singing Everybody in the church needs to this a the song of their lives: 12-13. Just listening to the words of the early church as they sang their praises to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit ought to bring us to our feet in praise. Text (NLT): Psalm 25:1-9; Philippians 2:1-13; Scripture Reading: Responsive Reading # 404 “The People of God” Philippians 2:1-11, NIV

September 24, 2017 Even Better! Philippians 1:21-24 Synopsis: This Sunday I am start a four-sermon series from Philippians. The title for this sermon comes directly from the text (Philippians 1:21, NLT), “Even Better!” This was Paul’s attitude and the attitude he encouraged believers to demonstrate in their struggles of faith (27-29). How do you defeat somebody with this kind of an attitude? This attitude and demeanor sends a clear message to those who persecute you, “Your end is coming (my paraphrase of verse 28).” Paul assures believers, “We are in this struggle together (30).” Knowing that you are not alone in your journey is a great comfort and inspiration. Believers are there for each other and when the end comes it will be “Even Better.” Text (NLT): Philippians 1:21-30 Scripture Reading: Psalm 145:1-8
