sermon series - PHILIPPIANS ­- Finding our place

Who are you? Why are you here, and what is your purpose in life? Written to a bunch of first century believers in Greece, the Apostle Paul wrestles with these questions better than an Olympian and answers them more clearly than any philosopher. His answers lie in the distinctions he makes in the first few words of his letter to the saints “IN” Christ Jesus – “AT” Philippi. What’s the difference? Both are locations, but one is spiritual and the other physical.

Paul teaches how to find our place in Christ, his purposes, and his eternal kingdom to such an extent that our spiritual location (in Christ) trumps our physical location (circumstances)—no matter what they might be. As a result, this faith-driven perspective allows us to see past all current circumstances to find true (eternal) joy that allows us to endure current sufferings with peace and hope knowing that we can do all things through whom we’re located IN.

Join us this Winter as we seek to find our place in Christ and experience all the eternal joy that it brings.
