Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: Christians must grow to the point God can use them.


We are in the age to seek maturity . We have the steps that lead to mauturity

Given by Paul.

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.

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,

3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

1. Recognizing our limitations.

Paul recognized his need.

He recognized his shortcomings.

To have a true Christian experience we must recognize our own needs.

We must diagnosis before we can be a healthy Christian life

Recognition of needs come before repentance

We must evaluate our limitations

If we are not adequately prepared it would be tragedy

2. Forgetting our failures

Paul looked back and saw his life

Persecution of the church and all Christians

His religion he remembered how he treated all Christians

Legalism is what he studied Roman laws that was all he enforced

Enforced that they wanted to keep all people under hand

Stopped dwelling on the past mistakes

Look for God to take control of us

Obey him do his will
