Series: Tipping Point
Scripture: Philippians 4:10–4:20
We need to talk… No, we aren’t breaking up. Quite the opposite. We have an amazing future. But sometimes you have to stop doing what you normally do in order to assess where you’re at. Sometimes you have to take an honest look at the past and an inspirational look at the future. Our church has been graciously gifted by God with immense growth, but this growth comes with responsibility. God isn’t giving it to us without reason. Things are coming together right now in such a way that we sense that we are at a tipping point of a kingdom epidemic beyond what we’ve ever seen before. Get ready, because you don’t want to miss it. Get ready because you have a part to play.
“Tipping Point” (Philippians 4:10-20)
A. God’s PROVIDEnce is our source of confidence (vv. 10-13, 19)
(1) We must recognize and celebrate God’s gracious gifts to us.
(2) We must understand the incredible opportunity that stands before us.
B. We move past the tipping point when we all give our share.
C. We share in kingdom work…
…because it brings joy to us (vs. 10)
…because it makes us stronger (vv. 14-15)
…because it produces fruit (vs. 17)
…because it brings gladness to God’s heart (vs. 18)
