Finding Focus in Philippians In our time of growing upheaval, government interference, and revolting, rioting, and looting, we need to return our focus to the things of God. Philippians does just that, giving us five areas of focus. 1. Focus on Proper Aims • 1:9-11 - To never quit growing • 1:20-21 - To magnify God in my body • 1:27-28 - To walk worthy of the Gospel • 2:14-16 - To be blameless lights • 3:12-14 - To always press forward 2. Focus on Foundational Axioms • 1:12-19 - God is working His plan • 1:29-30 - God's gift of salvation comes with the gift of suffering • 3:20a - Our citizenship is in heaven • 3:20b-21 - Our Savior will return 3. Focus on Required Attitudes • 2:1-13 - Unified, sacrificial care • 3:1-8 - Personal emptying • 3:20-21 - Upward looking • 4:4-5 - God anchoring 4. Focus on Defined Approvals • 2:17-30 - Faithful, dedicated, self-sacrificing leaders • 3:17-19 - Good examples (and not good examples) 5. Focus on Commanded Actions • 4:6-7 - Pray in place of worry • 4:8 - Think what God says to think about • 4:9 - Doing what we are learning • 4:10-19 - Giving generously God desires you to live a stable Christian life that leads to productive, eternal service for Jesus. Will YOU focus on that which God has revealed? Northridge Baptist Church – Pastor Kevin Subra – June 7, 2020
