Passage: Philippians 1:7-8       Series Philippians
  Description: “Together In The Gospel” Philippians 1:7-8 True joy comes from serving together in gospel advance 1. God At Work... In and Through You All On the premise that God is “at work” in you (plural)... Philippians 1:6 “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:13 where and why is “God at work”? “for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” 2. Together in Gospel Ministry (Philippians 1:7-8) Paul’s reason for his joy (1:4) and love for the Philippians What does “Partakers” look like?

WE + GOSPEL ADVANCE = JOY Do you believe that God is “at work” in all of you (plural)? Do you want to be part of God’s “work”? Do you want true joy?

That He who _______________________________ (past), will______________________________________(future)! The word “work” is related to the Roman colony (Acts 16:12). In context, “work” is likened unto a unified army engaged in battle together. This is the theme of the book: Philippians 1:27 “conduct...standing firm...striving together” Philippians 2:12-13 where and why is “God at work”? Philippians 3:13-14 we “press on” toward what? Philippians 3:20 our “citizenship” is where? Conclusion: Do you believe that God is “at work” in His church? Are you “confident” God will complete the “work” He began? Do you want to be part of God’s “work”? God’s “work” is all about the gospel of Jesus Christ!
