THE BIG IDEA: The gospel empowers service.
THE BIBLE READING: Philippians 2:5-11 (ESV)
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
KEY SCRIPTURE: “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:14)
THE BLURB: The gospel frustrates our desire to be self-made and self-sufficient. Because the gospel shows us that we need saving, that we needed someone to rescue us. And Christ was that Saviour. He came to serve us. This is the essence of the gospel, not that we serve Christ but that He served us. This means our service begins and ends with Jesus. In this sermon we will hear how BPCC – you and I – have been called to serve one another like Christ has served us, for the glory of God and the good of our community.
