How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

My Sermon Notes from October 18, 2020 Full Text:

腓立比書 Philippians 2:1-11

1 所以,在基督裡若有什麼勸勉,愛心有什麼安慰,聖靈有什麼交通,心中有什麼慈悲憐憫, 2 你們就要意念相同,愛心相同,有一樣的心思,有一樣的意念,使我的喜樂可以滿足。 3 凡事不可結黨,不可貪圖虛浮的榮耀,只要存心謙卑,各人看別人比自己強。 4 各人不要單顧自己的事,也要顧別人的事。 5 你們當以基督耶穌的心為心。 6 他本有神的形象,不以自己與神同等為強奪的, 7 反倒虛己,取了奴僕的形象,成為人的樣式; 8 既有人的樣子,就自己卑微,存心順服以至於死,且死在十字架上。9 所以神將他升為至高,又賜給他那超乎萬名之上的名, 10 叫一切在天上的、地上的和地底下的,因耶穌的名無不屈膝, 11 無不口稱耶穌基督為主,使榮耀歸於父神。

1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Discussion Questions:

1. Just like Jesus, in what ways can I look after not only myself but also look after other’s interests?
2. Just like Jesus, In what ways can I give my best to God?
