Message Notes

An Undeserved Gift // The Letter To Philippi // 07.21.24

It is difficult for some of us to accept gifts. We do not like handouts, or being indebted to someone else. Often we will try to “work” our way out of that debt. On Sunday, hear how and why we should be ready and willing to receive the greatest gift, even though we did nothing to deserve it.

An Undeserved Gift… 


Main Point: Salvation is not a prize that is ____________; it is a gift that is _____________.


1. Humble your _________, so ______ can fill it.

-Philippians 3:1-4 



2.  Don’t Waste Time ____________ ____________, Focus on the ____________ ______.

-Philippians 3:7-11  


“All financial gain, all material gain, all physical gain, all intellectual gain, all moral gain, all religious gain—all these are no gains at all compared with the Great Gain.” 

Guy King 



3. Move toward the ____________ ahead, and forget about the _______________ behind.

-Philippians 3:12-14 

Discussion Questions – 07.21.24 – The Letter To Philippi

Share with your group something about your relationship with your father or a father figure. How has that influenced your thought of God as your Heavenly Father?  

 

1. In Philippians 3:1-3, Paul warns against false confidence. What are some examples of false confidence that people might rely on today? 

 

2. Paul emphasizes the importance of rejoicing in the Lord. How can we maintain joy in our faith, especially during difficult circumstances? 

 

3. What does Paul mean by considering everything as "garbage" compared to knowing Christ (Philippians 3:7-8)? How does this perspective impact our daily priorities and pursuits? 

 

4. How can we discern between legalistic righteousness and the righteousness that comes from faith in Christ, as mentioned in verses 9-10? 

 

5. How does Paul's attitude towards forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead (Philippians 3:13-14) provide encouragement when we face failures or setbacks in our faith journey?
