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.
