“A Humility That Reflects the Gospel”

Pride and Christianity do not go well together. This week, e take a look at Philippians 2:1-18. In this week’s text, Paul points out a way the Christian can specifically model Christ to the world.

A Gospel Focused Church ……

  • …looks to the interests of others.
  • …reflects the humility of Jesus
  • …lives out its salvation on mission

Questions for Reflection/Discussion:

  • What’s the most successful team you’ve ever been on? What made that team so great?
  • Why is it important that a team or a church be unified? What should unify us as a church?
  • How can selfishness destroy a team? or a family? Or a church?
  • What would it look like to value others above yourself in a church?
  • In what ways does Jesus model this attitude?
  • How have you seen God working in you lately?
  • Why do we grumble and complain? What’s at its root?
  • How does complaining derail mission?
  • Spend some time praying that God might grant us an attitude like Jesus’.

Extra Credit: Read the rest of the chapter and discuss how Timothy and Epaphroditus exemplify this attitude.
