Philippians: The Letter of Joy, Week Twenty

Speaker: Matthew Dodd Series: Philippians, The Letter of Joy Scripture: Philippians 1:1– 4:23

Christians can have true joy because of our fellowship with God and one another through Jesus Christ.

  1. We can have deep fellowship in the Gospel (1:1-11)
  2. We have a God who is providentially over everything and a Savior who is worth everything (1:12-26)
  • We are called to live our heavenly citizenship in the here and now (1:27-2:30)
  1. Our heavenly citizenship effects our fight for joy (3:1), for the truth (3:2), to press on (3:12, 14), for the lost (3:19), for unity (4:3), against anxiety (4:6), for thoughts and a life that is pleasing to God (4:8-9), for contentment (4:11, 13), and to use what God has given for Him (4:16)
