The Household of Christ, Part 2

  • Sermon Questions
  • Call to Worship: Philippians 2:5-11 NLT

         You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

         Though he was God,
                  he did not think of equality with God
             as something to cling to.
         Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
                  he took the humble position of a slave
                 and was born as a human being.
             When he appeared in human form,
         he humbled himself in obedience to God
                  and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

         Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
                  and gave him the name above all other names,
    10      that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
                  in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    11      and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,
               to the glory of God the Father.

    Scripture Reading: Hebrews 4:12-13 NLT

    12 For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
