Series: Unsaved Christians
Unsaved Christians: Achieving vs. Receiving
May 08, 2022 | John Durham
AN UNSAVED CHRISTIAN IS ONE WHO IS CHRISTIAN IN NAME AND CULTURE, BUT IS NOT A NEW PERSON IN CHRIST.
PHILIPPIANS 3:1-2. A great definition of a Christian VS 3:
1) Worship by the Spirit of God 2) Glory in Christ Jesus 3) No confidence in flesh.
A DISTINCT CONTRAST between v2 and v3
• Those who profess to be Christian and those who are new creations in Christ
• Those who are religious (what they do) and those who are righteous (what Christ has done!)
• Those with an outward mark of tradition and those who have had an inward change
V4 If anyone could brag it's Paul. 5 really good things about Paul...5-6
1) GOOD FAMILY HERITAGE:
2) STRONG SOCIAL STATUS.
3) BIBLICAL KNOWLEDGE.
4) RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY.
5) HIGH MORAL LIFESTYLE.
V7-11 THE ONLY TREASURE OF THIS LIFE THAT COUNTS IS JESUS.
In this 3-week series, we look at what it means to fully follow Christ and what it means to culturally follow Jesus.
