United in Gospel Humility

Philippians 2:1-11                      October 5, 2014            Link for audio/video/manuscript

God has called us to meet together and to be united not in our sameness but in our humble one-heartedness for Jesus. He has also called us to set aside the pursuit of our own personal interests so that we can obediently fulfill God’s plan for our lives. We need one another to do so because left to ourselves our common spiritual blindness will cause us to follow our own shadow. We are all equal in that struggle because we all equally desperately need God. But we are not all equal in the roles, personalities and giftings we have been given by God. When we meet there and empty ourselves of ourselves, united in gospel humility, we can be and will be a powerful unstoppable force for Jesus Christ that can and will change the world.
