Upside Down and Backwards
Bible Text: Philippians 2: 1-11 | Speaker: Rev. Doug de Graffenried | Series: Philippians | Paul was chained to a soldier. At any minute another soldier could enter the room and haul Paul off for trial and execution. Yet Paul told the Philippians “to make my joy complete.” How could they do that? By living upside down.
An important word in this time has been kenosis…. emptying. What have we let go of? How have we learned the truth of what Jesus said, “those who seek to save their lives will lose them.” How have we lived out this idea of emptying ourselves and becoming obedient.
