Philippians - Working Out What God Works In Your Heart

#6 - SHOWING CHRIST TO BE GREAT - THE MEANING OF LIFE (AND DEATH)

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Philippians 1:19 - 26

We all, no doubt, have our moments when we feel our spirituality shines a little more brightly. We have our times when we don't blow it, when we allow Christ to be all in all. What marks Paul's passion for Christ in this letter to the Philippian Christians is the consistency with which all of his life was painted with such a dominating Christ obsessiveness. 

Paul was wonderfully obsessive about magnifying the greatness of Christ. He would never be intimidated by the less dedicated. He would never cave in to embarrassment about His Lord. He would never allow the spiritual numbness of the crowd silence his devotion. 


Many church goers await the discovery that joy abounds where dedication to Christ triumphs over the casual religious tone of the crowd. When Paul says "for me to live is Christ"(21) he means there is no "me" - no Paul - to be hurt or to carry a grudge. Christ lives where that part of Paul used to dominate. This is the incredible joy and unsinkable freedom that rules the heart where everything gets traced back to Christ and His glory alone.
