Together (Page 2)
We are gospel partners to preach Christ. Preaching Christ means: Unzipping your mouth to speak of Jesus as King For Paul this was more important than… Personal comfort Personal reputation What about us?
Paul’s prayer is a model of how to pray for gospel partners. How to pray: 1. Pray thankfully 2. Pray confidently What to pray: Pray that they would be made ready for the return of the King. Prayer is not pointless – prayer has purpose!
Are you a lone ranger or a team player? Philippians shows us what joyful gospel partnership looks like. It’s a thank you letter from servants of a king, to a people in a place with a purpose, thanking them and God for joyful gospel partnership. The work of the gospel is a team sport – we’re in it together.
