Salvation Sacrifices With Joy

In continuing with our sermon series through Philippians, Pastor Emilio Ramos preached from Philippians 2:17-18, a message entitled “How Salvation Is Worked Out In & By Us – Pt.3“.

  • I. Ministry Is Worth The Pain (Phil. 2:17a)
    • Paul would suffer as part of God’s ordained means to bring the gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 9:15-16)
    • Paul describes himself as a “drink offering” (2 Tim. 4:6)
      • The drink offering came last and would seal the deal symbolizing completion
      • Paul was willing to allow his life to be an offering for this church
      • Self preservation was not Paul’s highest priority in his life (Acts 20:24)
      • The goal in life is not to preserve your life here. It’s to advance the gospel ministry. We’re all on that course. Run the race with endurance!
        • (2 minute audio clip below):
        • [audio:http://mp3.sa-media.com/preview1/71811827220/71811827220.mp3]
  • II. The Faith Of The Church Is Worth The Sacrifice (Phil. 2:17b)
    • Paul was committed to the health/purity/progress of the church
    • “Sacrifice” refers to the ministry that went on through the church (Rom. 12:9-13)
      • That means that everything at Sovereign Joy (Sunday School, worship, setting up and tearing down, evangelism, etc…) is an act of worship and it’s all a part of a bigger picture
        • (3 minute audio clip):
        • [audio:http://mp3.sa-media.com/preview2/71811827220/71811827220.mp3]
    • “Service” of the church stems from all the member’s faith
      • Ministry is about furthering the life, faith, and joy of the church even if suffering is apart of it (2 Cor. 1:24 | Acts 20:28-32, 22-24 | Phil. 1:28-30 | Col. 1:24)

        • [audio:http://mp3.sa-media.com/preview3/71811827220/71811827220.mp3]
  • III. The Sacrificial Joy Of Paul Is Worth The Imitation (Phil. 2:18)
    • Paul strongly urges the church to imitate him
      • Imitation in the Bible (Rom. 12:1 | 1 Cor. 4:16; 11:1 | Phil 3:17; 4:9 | 1 Thes. 1:6; 2:10-14 | 1 Tim. 1:16 | 2 Thes. 3:7-9)
    • Do we sacrifice for the sake of the brethren?
