Our Focus (Find Your Place, part 1)


This and next weekend at Eastbrook Church, we are focusing on the theme of finding our place within the church. This weekend, I talked about how finding our place within the church begins not with understanding our spiritual gifts or natural abilities, but with having our focus in the right place. The message was based out of Philippians 2:1-11.

You can listen to the message at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow the RSS feed for Eastbrook sermons or follower Eastbrook Church on Twitter or Facebook.

The outline for the message is included below:

The Way of Jesus

  • Selfless (2:6) – “not … used to His own advantage”
  • Serving (2:7) – “He made Himself nothing”
  • Obedience (2:8) – “humbled Himself…by becoming obedient to death”
  • Reward (2:9-11) – “Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place”

The Way of Believers

  • Selfless (2:3a) – “do nothing out of selfish ambition”
  • Serving (2:3b) – “Rather, in humility value others above yourselves”
  • Obedience (2:12) – “as you have always obeyed…continue to work out your salvation”
  • Reward (2:14-18) – “then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ”
