Philippians 3:1-21
Joy of Believing

  • Christians worship God in Spirit
  • We have the circumcision of the heart
  • Verse 8: Everything else is worthless when compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus our Lord
  • We have the righteousness which is of God by faith
  • No amount of law keeping, self-improvement, discipline or religious effort can make us right with God. righteousness comes only from god.  We receive right standing with Him by trusting in Christ.  He exchanged our sin and shortcomings for His complete righteousness. (Also see II Corinthians 5:21 for the gift of righteousness of Christ.
  • Pattern your life after me, Paul said, after someone worthwhile
  • Our citizenship is in heaven
  • Verse 21: He will take these weak mortal bodies of ours and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same mighty power that He will sue to conquer everything, everywhere.

(Side-note: I Corinthians 10:13 Temptation)

Matthew 10:24-26
Subject: "Fear Not"

Verse 31: Don't be afraid; you are more valuable to Him than a flock of sparrows.
Fear depends on our perception of a situation - but we must act appropriately
We must learn to control our emotions
We need to respond instead of react
Stand and fight fear by understanding it from a spiritual perspective
Change the way we look at our situation

Fear =  False   Evidence   Appearing   Real

God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and self-discipline (II Timothy 1:7)
