Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 4/21/2013

Yesterday’s message in the Philippians: Partners in the Gospel series was called Advancing the Gospel, taken from Philippians 1:12-18. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Nothing is more important than advancing the gospel
    A. Advancing the gospel was more important to Paul than his own freedom (12-14)
        1) Paul’s imprisonment allowed him to share the gospel with the whole palace guard (13)
        2) Paul’s imprisonment encouraged other believers to share the gospel more boldly (14)

    B. Advancing the gospel was more important to Paul than his own comfort (15-18)
        1) Not everyone shared Christ from pure motives (15)
        2) Some tried to stir up trouble for Paul in prison (16-17)
        3) Either way, Paul rejoiced that Christ was preached! (18)

II. Nothing can stop the gospel from advancing
    A. God wants to use your present life circumstances as a platform to advance the gospel
    B. The gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes (Romans 1:16)
