Worship Preparation: April 18, 2021

Read the sermon text: Philippians 4:10-23

Read the sermon summary: Are you satisfied? Are you content? If so, why? And if not, why not? In our passage this Sunday, the Apostle Paul tells us he has learned the secret of being content in whatever state he is in. Paul wrote this statement while imprisoned in Rome, chained to a Roman guard. Paul is a great illustration of living a life worthy of the gospel by learning and practicing true contentment. In Philippians, we are commanded to consider others and look out for their interests, to do all things without grumbling, and not be anxious about anything. Obedience to these commands emanates from a heart that has learned the secret of true contentment. And a heart that practices contentment overflows with generosity.

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon: 

All I Have Is Christ
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God's love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah all I have is Christ
Hallelujah Jesus is my life

Now Lord I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
