Mar26ThuMarch 26, 2020Philippians 3:17-2017 Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach,...

Philippians 2:17-18 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
Sacrifice and service are poured out of our faith. All who belong to Christ are poured out…in so many different ways....

Philippians 2:15b-16a “…in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life…”
We hold the Word of Life within us by the Spirit. The Spirit of Jesus lives inside of us, making us like shining stars to our world.
This is what John said about the Word: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word...
