Rejoicing and Warning

Apr 23, 2023

Pastor Young continues with his series in the book of Philippians, preaching from Philippians 3:1-3. Rejoicing in the Lord is key to the Christian life. This is God's heart and His command, to rejoice in the gift freely given us in Christ Jesus. To not rejoice in Him is a serious disconnect of our heart with His, leading us to find pleasure in things that ensnare our heart and mind. We come under the influence and power of what we rejoice in, good or evil. Therefore, we must watch out for things that steal our heart and take our attention away from Him. Keep guard on our heart, so our life characterizes Jesus. Because He is everything, we honor Him with a joyful heart.
