Philippians 3:1-11 Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you. 2 Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh— 4 though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also.
Philippians 1:27-2:4 Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents.
This will be the fifth sermon I’ve preached on the Psalms. It started out with Psalm 23 in which I wanted to show that familiar Bible passages can be full of glory that we’ve never seen before, simply because we read over them too quickly. The other three sermons have been from Psalm 16, 42 and 130. I plan to continue preaching from the Psalms as much as I can for several reasons, but there is one compelling reason that rises to the top.
Psalm 42:5-6a – Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
Grace Church we are back in the Psalms again this morning. The only difference is, we will be looking mainly at one single verse from a Psalm instead looking at the entire chapter.
