Philippians - Working Out What God Works In Your Heart

#3 - LOVING OTHERS WITH THE AFFECTION OF CHRIST JESUS

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Philppians 1:7 - 8
#3 in the series "PHILIPPIANS - WORKING OUT WHAT GOD WORKS IN YOUR HEART SERIES"


The love Paul has for these people didn't come from doughnuts, car rallies, movie nights, or home fellowship groups. He says they were partakers with him of God's grace, not just in salvation, but particularly by sharing in imprisonment and defending and confirming the gospel. 


In other words, because they were following Jesus in the same Roman environment Paul was in, they were experiencing the same persecution, paying the same price, and facing the same challenges Paul was facing. They were persevering through the same difficulties for the very same reason. They loved the gospel just like Paul did. And they were paying the price of that love together.


These verses speak to a particular problem in the church. Loneliness. This is a felt need in our busy, impersonal world. People leave church because they didn't have any friends. And churches try everything imaginable to link people together against loneliness.
