Joy: Joy and Community

January 28, 2018 Speaker: Joe Walser Series: Joy

Topic: Biblical Passage: Philippians 2:1–2:11

Joy and Community

The Bible opens up with it...

 Genesis 2:18, 24

The Bible closes with it...

 Revelation 4:9-11

Survey: The struggle (Paul Tripp)

  • Letting go of a moment of hurt
  • Getting angry at the way teenagers complicate our lives
  • Becoming defensive when challenged
  • Avoiding conflict out of fear
  • Resigned to broken relationships that could be healed
  • Gossiping about others
  • Compromising our convictions to win other's approval
  • Pursuing comfortable relationships and avoiding difficult ones
  • Living in isolation to avoid the pain of community

James 4:1-3

The Focal point is the cross!

   A walk through how the players of the text see the cross!

  • God the Father
  • Jesus
  • Believers

Three Movements

    RELINQUISHING in   Philippians 2:5-8

  • Relinquishing form   Philippians 2:6-7
  • Relinquishing status
  • Relinquishing life   Philippians 2:8

    REVERSAL in

      Philippians 2:9-11

      Isaiah 45:22-24

    RAMIFICATIONS in light of the CROSS

       Philippians 2:1-4

        IF WE HAVE EXPERIENCED THE JOY OF THE CROSS, then JOY IN COMMUNTIY happens when we RELINQUISH!

  1. Our advantage (status, form, rights) over to others
  2. Our desire for superiority
  3. Our LIVES (self promotion) for the good of others (their promotion and advance in the gospel)
