March 24, 2019 Sermon Handout: Christlike Scripture Reading Philippians 3:8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, Philippians 3:17–21 17 Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us. 18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; 21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. Memory Verse John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. The Definition of Christlike: A way of organizing your life in a world that has radically different values than Jesus and the Kingdom of God The Philippian Context 1. 2. 3. 4. The Warning Philippians 3:18–19 18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. Isaiah 8:11 For thus the Lord spoke to me with mighty power and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, Ephesians 4:17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, Who are the Wrong People To Follow? 4 Ways To Organize Your Life 1. Follow The Example of Jesus Philippians 3:17 Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us. 1 John 2:6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 2. Live As Citizens, Not Enemies Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, Hebrews 11:16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them. 3. Subject Yourself to Christ Philippians 3:21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 4. Stand Firm In These Things Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.
