Choosing Our Thoughts

Philippians 4:6-8 “Anxiety is a warning sign that we are trusting in something other than God” Anxiety wars against the wisdom of God, the sovereignty of God, and the power of God. God knows everything. God is control of everything. God can do anything. Matthew 6:25-34

Moving Forward

Philippians 3:12-15 Paul’s goal was maturity His vision was to fulfill the Great Commission His confidence was in the work Jesus was doing in him Maturity is connected to obedience not information Obedience is found in complete surrender and dependence on Jesus Obedience is only possible when we pursue our future not focus on the past

Attitude Adjustment

Philippians 2:5-11 He emptied Himself Jesus made the conscious decision to set aside everything that was rightfully His. We must decide to set aside everything that we have “earned”; everything that we “deserve”. Humility is not thinking less of yourself but rather thinking of yourself less.

Purpose Driven By Passion
