Sermon - "Jesus' Recipe for Success"

Last Sunday, Rev. Joshua Patty preached on Paul's letter to the Philippians, where the apostle sent encouragement to the congregation at Philippi while he was in prison.  Drawing upon his own experience, Paul suggested that his own faithful life was doubly blessed, despite his own suffering -- on earth he could help others learn about Christ; after death he would go to heaven to be with Christ.

In fact, Paul said that this was how Jesus himself lived on earth.  Instead of worrying about how he deserved to be treated as God, Jesus instead worried only about how to help others around him, in whatever way they would allow him.  The best that Christians can do, in whatever circumstances and challenges they find themselves in, is to follow his example and do the same, humbly.
