Download the Sermon Notes for March 8, 2020.


Introduction...

How do we properly define the Christian life?

The Christ-life is not what you do for God but rather but what God does in and through you, to make you effective in your service for Him.


- Is your conduct worthy of the gospel? (Phil. 1:27)

- Do you have the mind of Christ? (Phil. 2:5)

- The Design of Discipline - To live a life worthy of the gospel we must be...


I. BURDENED IN OUR OBEDIENCE (vv. 12-13)

A. You Work OUT Your Salvation.

- You must be disciplined!

- The Quietist v. the Pietist view

B. God Works IN His Sovereignty

A. Right Attitudes - Supporting the life of the church

B. We Do Not Run in Vain.
