The Gospel for the Pharisee

January 8, 2023 Speaker: Keith Kneeshaw Series: Gospel Reset

Topic: Gospel Living Passage: Philippians 3:1–11

In this sermon, we continue in the "Gospel Reset" series by studying Philippians 3:1-11. The Gospel is the good news of salvation and the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. It also frames how believers are intended to live. However, when God's people forget the Gospel, we begin to live in ways that certain character sketches will help us understand. This passage challenges our tendency to live like a Pharisee, pretending to be someone we aren't and establishing our credibility through rule following. Listen as we discover the freedom that the Gospel brings to us.

1) "Good People" Put Confidence in Themselves
      a) "Good People" Put on Appearances
      b) "Good People" Seek to Justify Themselves

2) God's People Put No Confidence in the Flesh
     a) God's People Freely Admit Their Sin
     b) God's People are Justified by Faith in Christ
