Read the sermon text: Philippians 1:27-30

Read the sermon summary: In this passage Paul shows how the benefits of the gospel (v. 1-2) and the example of the gospel (v. 6-11) lead the people of God to be unified in love and purpose, motivated out of a radical devotion to building up one another rather than themselves. Paul's aim is that the Philippian believers would be overjoyed at all they had received in Christ and be moved to love one another in the same way that Christ has loved them. This contrasts with our worldly desires of "looking out for number one." Instead of prioritizing our own self-interests or self-promotion, the gospel leads us to sacrifice in love for one another and for the glory of God, thus putting the gospel on display in the way we relate to one another in the church.

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
This I Believe (The Creed)
Our Father everlasting
The all creating One
God Almighty
Through Your Holy Spirit
Conceiving Christ the Son
Jesus our Saviour
I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in One
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus
Our judge and our defender
Suffered and crucified
Forgiveness is in You
Descended into darkness
You rose in glorious life
Forever seated high
I believe in You
I believe You rose again
I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord
Chorus 2
I believe in life eternal
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the saints' communion
And in Your holy Church
I believe in the resurrection
When Jesus comes again
For I believe in the Name of Jesus
