Philippians - Working Out What God Works In Your Heart

#7 - A LIFE WORTHY OF THE GOSPEL

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Philippians 1:27 - 30

Paul may live and Paul may be executed. He thinks he may come to see those in Philippi again, Lord willing (25-26). But he's not certain. And it's almost as though he lifts his warning finger in their faces as he says "Only remember this...."(27). Paul may come to them and he may not. Speculation about Paul's future or theirs isn't the point. Theres only one point. And Paul uses that first word of verse 27 to separate the important from the speculative - "Only" - "This is the only thing you need to remember at this point!"


 

The only thing they need to concentrate on is then made clear - "Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ...."(27a). Like Paul, they may live and they may die. But right now they live. And this is where they must shine the light of the gospel. And Paul is clear they must not only believe the gospel. They must manifest life-styles that are "worthy of the gospel of Christ"(27). The rest of today's text tells us how this is to be done and why it must be done.
