Philippians: Sharing Suffering – Michael Acock

Play Video

Today, Michael Acock speaks in the sixth message of a 10-week series as we walk through the book of Philippians. Today, we will be reading in Philippians 3:1-11 and looking at suffering for Christ.

In Philippians, Paul is inviting us to:
1. Consider God’s activities and purposes in creation and salvation.
2. Reflect on God’s calling in our own lives.
3. Embrace a mindset that privileges others above ourselves.

This letter, the book of Philippians, includes the themes of Christ as at once humble Lord and supreme paradigm of Christian life; of unity in Christ that overcomes the forces of dissension; of a readiness to suffer for the sake of the gospel that does not rob us of joy in Christ; of the radical difference between a righteousness of our own and a righteousness from God; and of a life of thanksgiving in mutual giving and receiving.

We hope this message encourages you and helps you know Jesus in a more real way. You can find the full sermon notes and other resources at our website.  Subscribe to us at our YouTube channel, on Apple Podcasts or on Spotify. You can also visit us at Facebook or Instagram.

This was recorded live at Christian Fellowship Church in Columbia, Missouri on June 30, 2024.
