Sermon Notes

   Our last message was an introduction to our series on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. We first saw that the city of Philippi in northern Greece was a great commercial city, a Roman colony, and its importance militarily because of its location. We also saw how the church began from Acts ch. 16.

   This morning we will look at the introduction of Paul’s letter to these followers of Christ. Paul introduces himself and Timothy as “servants” of Jesus Christ. If we are Christians, do we see ourselves as servants of God? Do we have a heart to love and serve God and others?

   Paul then addresses each of the recipients of this letter as “saints” in Christ Jesus. We will look at what that word means biblically and how God calls every Christian to be a saint.
