The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 2 – Part 7
We are continuing in the epistle of Philippians. In this series “The Epistle Of Joy Part 2” – We see Churches are filled with people from different races, cultures, and backgrounds. We are to be an example to the world of the power of the new birth, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit. What the world cannot do, the supernatural power of God can.
A sad thing happens when the church starts to live like the world. Paul heard from prison that factions were developing in the Philippian church. Here He writes to remind them of the Holy Spirit who lives in them and the fruit which He produces.
Part 7 – We have now progressed in chapter 2 in Philippians to verses 16 and 17. In tonight’s message, we see from verse 16 that we are empowered to hold out for others the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Walking in sanctification prevents ministers from experiencing vain labor. In verse 17 we see Paul finding joy in the Holy Spirit by the sacrifice and service of his life in the development of the faith of others. Spiritually mature believers look for ways to strengthen the faith of others in their walk with the Lord.
