Philippians 1:19-30 

We can influence how people think about Jesus.  We can live to exalt Christ.

Christ Glorified Always

  • Philippians 1:19-20 -We can influence people towards Christ with our physical body whether we live or die.
  • Matthew 5:14-16 – You life is an example to the world.  Your good works exalt God and show him in a positive way.  We must live to bring others to Christ.
  • Acts 2:46-47 – These people were bringing gladness about Christ to all. 
  • Romans 14:16-18 – Live with gladness so that God approves of us and men approve.  Don’t cause anger, conflict, or separation with your attitudes.  Focus on glorifying Christ.

Christ Glorified in Helping Others

  • Philippians 1:21-26 – Paul believed that if he died he would be with Christ.  He was willing to remain on earth for others to learn more about Christ.
  • Gal. 6:10 – Do good to all when you have the chance.
  • Eph. 2:10 -God saved us for good works.
  • Titus 2:14, 3:8, 14 – We need to have zeal for good deeds.  We must plan to do good deeds.  We glorify God when we do good deeds.

Christ Glorified in Suffering Together

  • Philippians 1:27-30 – When we are willing to join in others’ sufferings we are glorifying God.  We are showing his ways to the world.
  • Philippians 4:14, 2 Timothy 1:15-18 -These are examples of people who joined Paul in his suffering. 
  • Hebrews 10:32-34 – Another example of those who joined together with other’s who are suffering.
