"LET US DO AND GOD WILL DO MORE IN 2008"

In this outline sermon that can be used for any year that we face, deals with God’s plan that we be doers of the Word and not just hearers. If we will put our faith in ACTION God will do more in our lives. In active faith binds the hand of God’s blessing and leading in our lives. We will begin with the Apostle Paul and his letter to Philippian church. We believe that Paul life and testimony is the secret to successful overcoming Christian Life.

Phil 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If

any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might

trust in the flesh, I more:

Phil 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel,

of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews;

as touching the law, a Pharisee;

Phil 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching

the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Phil 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted

loss for Christ.

Phil 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for

the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my

Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all

things, and do count them but dung, that I may win

Christ,

Phil 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own

righteousness, which is of the law, but that which

is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness

which is of God by faith:

Phil 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his

resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings,

being made conformable unto his death;

Phil 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the

resurrection of the dead.

Phil 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were

already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may

apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of

Christ Jesus.

Phil 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:

but this one thing I do, forgetting those things

which are behind, and reaching forth unto those

things which are before,

Phil 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high

calling of God in Christ Jesus.

I. Paul the Apostle was a man that if anyone could brag it was Paul. He had all the credentials and credits.

A. He was a Doctor of Doctors.

1. What did he think of them, though he bragged of them with the comparison to the Calling of Christ on his life?

Phil 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for

the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my

Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all

things, and do count them but dung, that I may win

Christ,

B. Paul declared he was a great sinner.

1 Tim 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all

acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world

to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

1. Only the Lord Jesus can change a person like that. Paul was made a new person.

2. The Lord will do it for anyone who comes to Him with an open and sincere heart.

2 Cor 5:17 (AMP) Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!

C. The Lord changed him to be the chief of the apostles.

2 Cor 12:11 I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled

me: for I ought to have been commended of you:

for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest

apostles, though I be nothing. .

2 Cor 12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among

you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds. .

D. Paul did suffer for the cause of Christ!

2 Cor 11:22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites?

so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.

2 Cor 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool)

I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes

above measure, in prisons more frequent, in

deaths oft. 2 Cor 11:24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 2 Cor 11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I toned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

2 Cor 11:26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 2 Cor 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
