A New Year, A New Heart, A New MindDecember 26, 2021 / Philippians 2:1-11
Introduction: A New Year- Time to look back as we prepare to move forward
Scripture often reflects on the past in order to lead us into a God honoring future. The book of Philippians is no different. In it Paul reflects on the work that has been done & the relationships that have been formed in order to prepare the believers to continue to advance the Gospel & live out what they have been taught.
