February 12, 2017- Philippians: Encouragement

Icon of EpaphroditusAn audio file of the sermon from February 12 is available at this link.

A PDF file of the worship bulletin is here.

From the sermon:

“This advice and instruction comes down to this: We who are Christians are asked to live the gospel and not just to proclaim it. People don’t need any help feeling worse about what they haven’t done for God. No one needs help feeling guilty that your best, most sacrificial effort wasn’t enough. Most especially you don’t need that kind of discouraging, guilt-laden response from people who haven’t tried anything of the kind. What you need in the moment of failure from the church is grace that takes the form, first of forgiveness, and then of encouragement.”
