At Hope Church and Christ Central Soweto, we have been preaching through the book of Philippians this year. It has been exactly what we needed as a church, a staff team and personally as a family.
Hope Church Auckland Park 10am service, May 2019
Together we have learnt much greater relational dependence on the Lord and reminded each other that we are citizens of heaven called to unite in our fight for the gospel of Christ (Phil 1:27-30). We have been encouraged to ‘have the same mindset as Christ’ and ‘value others above ourselves’ (Phil 2:3-4). We have been called to rejoice that Christ is more than enough for us as we long to know him more and more (Phil 3:10) and so find our peace in him through the sufferings that he calls us to (Phil 4:7). It has been a joy as a church to turn away from this world and our situations and turn to Christ, finding our joy and identity and purpose in him.
