Philippians Week 1: Intro and 1:1-11
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our service this Sunday 27th September 2020. We had a great time during the service with John and Trish back after a long time away. It was good to see Harry back as well. Today we start a new sermon series on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. The message is in two parts, the introduction and background to the letter, followed by a deeper look at Phil 1:6, “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” The message in this verse, is that just because we have confidence that we will be completed and perfect when Jesus returns, it doesn’t mean that we do not have to do our part to desire and pray for the Lord to work in us to transform us into the image of Jesus in the here and now.
We enjoyed a warm welcome from Meryl who later led us in prayer. Anne did a great job reading the scripture for us this morning and as always we have some great music for you to join in and sing in the comfort of your own home or wherever you happen to be.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to continue to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
Well friends this brings us to the end of another service. We trust that you enjoyed you time with us as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. Wherever you are in Australia or around the world we bless you in Jesus name. As a special treat I have video clip for you from Sergio and Rhoda, this time beautiful drone footage of Northern Galilee and the Golan region. That dome shaped mountain that you see in the thumbnail below is mount Tabor the traditional site of the transfiguration of Jesus.
