SERMON NOTES:

“Broken Already”

 

        This coming Sunday is World Communion Sunday, October 1, 2017. Christians all around the world from many nations, cultures, tribes, suburbs, villages, towns and a variety of different types of Christian churches will remember the “body” and the “blood” of Jesus.

Other the last few sermons we have looked together at being a servant and surrendering to the Holy Spirit’s control in our lives. Salvation is the beginning of everything God has planned for your life. Serving Him, following Him, obeying Him, listening to Him, and being crucified with Him all began at your conversion through His offer of salvation. As you read the Scripture below (Philippines 2:1-13), ask yourself --- Am I working out my salvation with fear and trembling? Is this a key, to being a faithful servant?

 

Philippines 2:1-13 (NKJV)  Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

See you in worship this week… Pastor Harvey
