Balance Sheet

November 4, 2018 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Together: On Mission for Christ

Scripture: Philippians 3:1–3:11

Balance Sheet

Philippians 3:1-11

 

Warning:  Watch out for those who insist on particular behaviors, in order to secure God’s favor.   (vs. 2).

 

We have the Spirit of God to lead us; nothing else is needed for His approval.

 

Paul’s Balance sheet:

        Profit                           Loss

His Credentials

His Name

His Success

His Religious Fervor

 

Correction:  What really counts is Christ’s achievements.

 

New measure of profit:  Knowing Christ.

 

Take Home Idea: When we try to measure up to other’s standards, we miss the unsurpassed greatness of knowing Christ.
