  • running backsfor the Chicago Bears,
  • 00:02:52.255 --> 00:02:55.024
  • began rooming togetherin the late '60s,
  • 00:02:55.058 --> 00:02:58.728
  • it was a first for both of them.
  • 00:02:58.761 --> 00:03:00.830
  • Gale Sayers had never hada close relationship
  • 00:03:00.863 --> 00:03:02.865
  • with a white person,and Piccolo had never had
  • 00:03:02.899 --> 00:03:05.568
  • a close relationshipwith a black person.
  • 00:03:05.602 --> 00:03:08.037
  • In fact, he had never knowna black person.
  • 00:03:08.071 --> 00:03:11.140
  • During the 1968 season,Gale Sayers suffered
  • 00:03:11.174 --> 00:03:15.912
  • a career-threateningknee injury.
  • 00:03:15.945 --> 00:03:18.615
  • Most pundits thoughthe'd never play again.
  • 00:03:18.648 --> 00:03:21.618
  • But one year later,after the close
  • 00:03:21.651 --> 00:03:23.086
  • of the 1969 season,and having made a full recovery,
  • 00:03:23.119 --> 00:03:28.057
  • Gale Sayers stood at the banquetof the New York Chapter
  • 00:03:28.091 --> 00:03:31.527
  • of Professional Football Writersto accept
  • 00:03:31.561 --> 00:03:34.564
  • the George S. Halas Award
  • 00:03:34.597 --> 00:03:37.133
  • as the Most Courageous Playerin Pro Football.
  • 00:03:37.166 --> 00:03:41.271
  • Sayers and Piccolo had plannedwith their wives to sit together
  • 00:03:41.304 --> 00:03:44.340
  • at the banquet, but instead,Brian Piccolo
  • 00:03:44.374 --> 00:03:48.411
  • was confined tohis bed at home.
  • 00:03:48.444 --> 00:03:50.980
  • He wasn't fightingwith a football injury.
  • 00:03:51.014 --> 00:03:53.316
  • He was battling cancer.
  • 00:03:53.349 --> 00:03:56.185
  • And that night,Gale Sayers accepted
  • 00:03:56.219 --> 00:03:59.255
  • the George S. Halas Award,
  • 00:03:59.289 --> 00:04:02.058
  • but he accepted itfor Brian Piccolo.
  • 00:04:02.091 --> 00:04:05.862
  • As he stood to receivehis trophy,
  • 00:04:05.895 --> 00:04:07.897
  • here's what he said:"You flatter me
  • 00:04:07.930 --> 00:04:10.767
  • by giving me this award,but I tell you here and now
  • 00:04:10.800 --> 00:04:15.471

  • 00:04:23.479 --> 00:04:25.948
  • It is Brian Piccolo's tomorrow.
  • 00:04:25.982 --> 00:04:28.851
  • I love Brian Piccolo,and like all of you
  • 00:04:28.885 --> 00:04:32.422
  • to love him, too.
  • 00:04:32.455 --> 00:04:34.223
  • Tonight, when you hityour knees,
  • 00:04:34.257 --> 00:04:36.826
  • please ask God to loveBrian Piccolo."
  • 00:04:36.859 --> 00:04:42.332
  • I remember that speech,and I remember it did to me
  • 00:04:42.365 --> 00:04:47.704
  • then what it's about to doto me right now.
  • 00:04:47.737 --> 00:04:52.175
  • "I love Brian Piccolo."
  • 00:04:52.208 --> 00:04:56.346
  • For some reason,those reasons sound strange
  • 00:04:56.379 --> 00:04:59.682
  • coming froma professional athlete.
  • 00:04:59.716 --> 00:05:02.452
  • In our culture,grown men do not
  • 00:05:02.485 --> 00:05:05.888
  • usually express their affectionso openly.
  • 00:05:05.922 --> 00:05:11.294
  • But before us now isa letter that is filled
  • 00:05:11.327 --> 00:05:14.530
  • with expressions of love.
  • 00:05:14.564 --> 00:05:16.999
  • As we read this brief letterfrom Paul
  • 00:05:17.033 --> 00:05:19.769
  • to his friends in Philippi,we are immediately struck
  • 00:05:19.802 --> 00:05:23.473
  • by the eloquent wordshe used to describe
  • 00:05:23.506 --> 00:05:26.676
  • the deep feelings of attachmenthe had for all of them.
  • 00:05:26.709 --> 00:05:31.414
  • Dr. John Townsend explainsin modern terms the pain
  • 00:05:31.447 --> 00:05:36.252
  • that Paul was feeling.
  • 00:05:36.285 --> 00:05:39.422
  • He said, "The reason is foundin the law of entropy,
  • 00:05:39.455 --> 00:05:42.725
  • or the second lawof thermodynamics.
  • 00:05:42.759 --> 00:05:46.095
  • This law of physics statesthat things that are isolated
  • 00:05:46.129 --> 00:05:49.132
  • move toward deterioration.
  • 00:05:49.165 --> 00:05:53.069
  • Entropy operatesin the spiritual world as well,"
  • 00:05:53.102 --> 00:05:56.272
  • said Townsend.
  • 00:05:56.305 --> 00:05:58.040
  • "Whatever is cut offtends toward deterioration.
  • 00:05:58.074 --> 00:06:01.644
  • That's whythe ultimate punishment, hell,
  • 00:06:01.677 --> 00:06:04.647
  • is not defined by loss ofconsciousness or annihilation,
  • 00:06:04.680 --> 00:06:08.351
  • but by its utter and completeseparation from the love of God.
  • 00:06:08.384 --> 00:06:13.289
  • Jesus's sacrifice for usinvolved his separation
  • 00:06:13.322 --> 00:06:17.994
  • from the Father when he criedon the cross,
  • 00:06:18.027 --> 00:06:20.930
  • "My God, my God,why have you forsaken me?"
  • 00:06:20.963 --> 00:06:24.066
  • In that moment,the infinite Son of God
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:26.235
  • felt the awful separationof hell
  • 00:06:26.269 --> 00:06:28.905
  • for each and every one of us.
  • 00:06:28.938 --> 00:06:31.340
  • God created us for fellowship.
  • 00:06:31.374 --> 00:06:33.943
  • He created us for relationship.
  • 00:06:33.976 --> 00:06:36.712
  • And Paul's relationshipwith these intimate friends
  • 00:06:36.746 --> 00:06:40.383
  • had been interruptedbecause of his imprisonment.
  • 00:06:40.416 --> 00:06:42.785
  • But his love for themhad not gone away.
  • 00:06:42.819 --> 00:06:45.488
  • In fact, his opening remarksin this letter are devoted
  • 00:06:45.521 --> 00:06:48.925
  • to a detailed expressionof his love for them
  • 00:06:48.958 --> 00:06:52.028
  • and the prayer that their lovefor him would grow,
  • 00:06:52.061 --> 00:06:55.898
  • and that they would continueto grow
  • 00:06:55.932 --> 00:06:58.734
  • in their love for each other.
  • 00:06:58.768 --> 00:07:01.003
  • As Paul communicates hisfeelings for the Philippians,
  • 00:07:01.037 --> 00:07:03.172
  • he touches on manyof the prerequisites
  • 00:07:03.206 --> 00:07:06.542
  • for loving relationshipsin a local church.
  • 00:07:06.576 --> 00:07:10.880
  • And as he concludedhis opening remarks,
  • 00:07:10.913 --> 00:07:13.583
  • he launched into a prayerfor the growth and maturity
  • 00:07:13.616 --> 00:07:16.719
  • of these associates for whomhe cared so deeply.
  • 00:07:16.752 --> 00:07:20.289
  • So, in these next few moments,let me take you
  • 00:07:20.323 --> 00:07:23.059
  • through these 11 verses.
  • 00:07:23.092 --> 00:07:25.328
  • Let's begin, first of all,with humility,
  • 00:07:25.361 --> 00:07:28.097
  • the attitude of love.
  • 00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:30.733
  • Philippians 1:1begins like this:
  • 00:07:30.766 --> 00:07:33.069
  • "Paul and Timothy,bondservants of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:07:33.102 --> 00:07:39.542
  • We can all do well to rememberthat God did not save us
  • 00:07:39.575 --> 00:07:42.945
  • to become sensations.
  • 00:07:42.979 --> 00:07:44.981
  • God saved us to be servants.
  • 00:07:45.014 --> 00:07:47.917
  • So, as you read this letter,you're going to discover
  • 00:07:47.950 --> 00:07:50.219
  • that humble service isa dominant theme.
  • 00:07:50.253 --> 00:07:53.990
  • Besides Paul and Timothy,there's Epaphroditus.
  • 00:07:54.023 --> 00:07:57.793
  • All of them are held upas examples of what it means
  • 00:07:57.827 --> 00:08:00.696
  • to live your lifein serving others.
  • 00:08:00.730 --> 00:08:03.533
  • And it is Jesus Christ inthe 2nd chapter of this book who
  • 00:08:03.566 --> 00:08:07.537
  • is given to us as the ultimateexample of what a servant is:
  • 00:08:07.570 --> 00:08:12.775
  • "He humbled himself andbecame obedient unto death."
  • 00:08:12.808 --> 00:08:17.246
  • That's what the Scripture says.
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:20.316
  • Humility is the attitudeof love.
  • 00:08:20.349 --> 00:08:23.286
  • "Paul and Timothy,bondservants of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:08:23.319 --> 00:08:28.724
  • Unity, however,is the atmosphere of love.
  • 00:08:28.758 --> 00:08:31.594
  • Interesting,in the 1st and 2nd verses:
  • 00:08:31.627 --> 00:08:34.564
  • "To all the saintsin Christ Jesus
  • 00:08:34.597 --> 00:08:37.667
  • who are in Philippi,with the bishops
  • 00:08:37.700 --> 00:08:40.937
  • and the deacons:Grace to you and peace
  • 00:08:40.970 --> 00:08:43.639
  • from our God our Fatherand the Lord Jesus Christ."
  • 00:08:43.673 --> 00:08:47.944
  • Whenever you see the word"saints" in the Bible,
  • 00:08:47.977 --> 00:08:50.313
  • it will almost always bein the plural.
  • 00:08:50.346 --> 00:08:53.950
  • It hardly ever appearsin the singular.
  • 00:08:53.983 --> 00:08:56.686
  • In fact, I cannot cite one placethat I have found
  • 00:08:56.719 --> 00:08:59.388
  • where it does appearin the singular
  • 00:08:59.422 --> 00:09:02.224
  • in referenceto the body of Christ.
  • 00:09:02.258 --> 00:09:05.595
  • This is a gentle reminder to usthat saints
  • 00:09:05.628 --> 00:09:08.431
  • are not meant for isolation.
  • 00:09:08.464 --> 00:09:10.666
  • They are meant for community.
  • 00:09:10.700 --> 00:09:13.002
  • And where there is community,the leaders are always
  • 00:09:13.035 --> 00:09:16.172
  • the servants and the followersare the saints.
  • 00:09:16.205 --> 00:09:20.109
  • Have you noticed how Pauladdresses them?
  • 00:09:20.142 --> 00:09:22.945
  • He says to them,"Grace and peace."
  • 00:09:22.979 --> 00:09:26.449
  • Did you know that in the Bible,those two words
  • 00:09:26.482 --> 00:09:28.884
  • are never reversed?
  • 00:09:28.918 --> 00:09:30.920
  • You will never readin any of the letters
  • 00:09:30.953 --> 00:09:32.788
  • in the New Testament,"Peace and grace to you."
  • 00:09:32.822 --> 00:09:35.124
  • One reason: grace alwaysprecedes peace.
  • 00:09:35.157 --> 00:09:37.693
  • You can't have peaceif you don't have grace.
  • 00:09:37.727 --> 00:09:41.497
  • You become men and womenof peace when you become men
  • 00:09:41.530 --> 00:09:46.435
  • and women of grace.
  • 00:09:46.469 --> 00:09:48.571
  • So, even in thatlittle salutation,
  • 00:09:48.604 --> 00:09:52.041
  • "Grace and peace,"we learn so much.
  • 00:09:52.074 --> 00:09:55.711
  • Now, we've lookedat the attitude of love
  • 00:09:55.745 --> 00:09:59.682
  • and the atmosphere of love.
  • 00:09:59.715 --> 00:10:01.617
  • Let me take you a little bitfurther into this text,
  • 00:10:01.651 --> 00:10:04.520
  • and let's talk about diversity,the assignment of love.
  • 00:10:04.553 --> 00:10:08.457
  • And most people that I knowof when they come to church
  • 00:10:08.491 --> 00:10:11.160
  • kinda gravitate to the peoplethat they feel comfortable with.
  • 00:10:11.193 --> 00:10:15.331
  • We have an affinityfor some people.
  • 00:10:15.364 --> 00:10:17.833
  • Let's face it.
  • 00:10:17.867 --> 00:10:19.769
  • We get along with some peoplebetter than we do with others,
  • 00:10:19.802 --> 00:10:22.338
  • even in the body of Christ.
  • 00:10:22.371 --> 00:10:23.939
  • That's pretty normal.
  • 00:10:23.973 --> 00:10:25.708
  • But when the assignment is tolove someone who is different,
  • 00:10:25.741 --> 00:10:29.779
  • that can be a challenge.
  • 00:10:29.812 --> 00:10:31.947
  • Have you ever known anybodyand you know
  • 00:10:31.981 --> 00:10:34.483
  • you're supposed to love 'em,and you keep prayin'
  • 00:10:34.517 --> 00:10:38.187
  • that God'll help you figure outhow to love 'em?
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:40.923
  • There's an old little phrasethat goes like this:
  • 00:10:40.956 --> 00:10:42.758
  • "To love the whole worldfor me is no chore.
  • 00:10:42.792 --> 00:10:45.928
  • My only real problemis the guy next door."
  • 00:10:45.961 --> 00:10:49.832
  • You know, we can lovein general, can't we?
  • 00:10:49.865 --> 00:10:51.834
  • We all know how to do that.
  • 00:10:51.867 --> 00:10:53.202
  • Do you love our church?Oh, we love our church.
  • 00:10:53.235 --> 00:10:56.806
  • But I can probably--you probablycould tell me a couple of people
  • 00:10:56.839 --> 00:11:00.476
  • in our church that you love 'embecause you know
  • 00:11:00.509 --> 00:11:03.746
  • God tells you to,but you don't like 'em.
  • 00:11:03.779 --> 00:11:08.784
  • In the church in Philippi,there was
  • 00:11:08.818 --> 00:11:11.220
  • an incredible diversity.
  • 00:11:11.253 --> 00:11:13.055
  • There was a womanin this church named Lydia.
  • 00:11:13.089 --> 00:11:15.858
  • She was a businesswomanwho sold purple cloth
  • 00:11:15.891 --> 00:11:19.562
  • and made so much money,she was able to help
  • 00:11:19.595 --> 00:11:21.831
  • in the establishmentof the church.
  • 00:11:21.864 --> 00:11:23.566
  • And many scholars believethe church in Philippi
  • 00:11:23.599 --> 00:11:26.035
  • actually met in her homefor a long period of time.
  • 00:11:26.068 --> 00:11:29.572
  • In that church,there was a jailer.
  • 00:11:29.605 --> 00:11:31.741
  • He would've committed suicideif it had not been for Paul.
  • 00:11:31.774 --> 00:11:35.411
  • In that church was a slave girlwho had been delivered
  • 00:11:35.444 --> 00:11:38.547
  • from a demon.
  • 00:11:38.581 --> 00:11:40.116
  • And you can go onand read the letter.
  • 00:11:40.149 --> 00:11:42.284
  • And if we knew everything thatwas going on in that church,
  • 00:11:42.318 --> 00:11:44.553
  • we would know that churchwas filled with a whole lot
  • 00:11:44.587 --> 00:11:46.489
  • of people who were so differentfrom each other,
  • 00:11:46.522 --> 00:11:49.258
  • but they had unityin their diversity.
  • 00:11:49.291 --> 00:11:53.095
  • And the unity we havein diversity is because,
  • 00:11:53.129 --> 00:11:55.364
  • as Christians, we all havethe same spiritual DNA,
  • 00:11:55.397 --> 00:11:59.635
  • don't we?
  • 00:11:59.668 --> 00:12:01.270
  • We have the DNA of Jesus Christin our hearts.
  • 00:12:01.303 --> 00:12:04.640
  • I know that some of you havea hard time with that.
  • 00:12:04.673 --> 00:12:07.276
  • I read this: "If everybody werejust like me,
  • 00:12:07.309 --> 00:12:10.446
  • the world would sure bea better place to be.
  • 00:12:10.479 --> 00:12:13.949
  • There'd be no murder,for I'm not violent.
  • 00:12:13.983 --> 00:12:16.218
  • No stealing,for I'm not a thief.
  • 00:12:16.252 --> 00:12:19.121
  • No adultery, I'm happily wed.
  • 00:12:19.155 --> 00:12:21.524
  • No atheism, I believe in God.
  • 00:12:21.557 --> 00:12:23.793
  • No ignorance,I've been to school.
  • 00:12:23.826 --> 00:12:25.661
  • If only the world wasmore like me,
  • 00:12:25.694 --> 00:12:28.631
  • surely it would bea better place to be.
  • 00:12:28.664 --> 00:12:32.334
  • Or would it?
  • 00:12:32.368 --> 00:12:34.570
  • For if everybodywas just like me,
  • 00:12:34.603 --> 00:12:36.639
  • there would be nomerry-go-rounds.
  • 00:12:36.672 --> 00:12:38.240
  • I get dizzy.
  • 00:12:38.274 --> 00:12:40.409
  • There'd be no clowns.I'm self-conscious.
  • 00:12:40.442 --> 00:12:43.846
  • No doctors, I hate blood.
  • 00:12:43.879 --> 00:12:46.482
  • No painters, I'm color blind."
  • 00:12:46.515 --> 00:12:48.551
  • I really am.
  • 00:12:48.584 --> 00:12:50.452
  • "No mechanics,I can't fix anything."
  • 00:12:50.486 --> 00:12:52.755
  • This is written about me.
  • 00:12:52.788 --> 00:12:56.258
  • "No elevator operators,I'm claustrophobic.
  • 00:12:56.292 --> 00:12:59.528
  • No home-run kings,I can't hit a curveball.
  • 00:12:59.562 --> 00:13:03.332
  • No balloon riders,I'm afraid of heights.
  • 00:13:03.365 --> 00:13:06.235
  • Come to think of it,if the world was just like me,
  • 00:13:06.268 --> 00:13:10.306
  • it would be an awfullyboring place to be."
  • 00:13:10.339 --> 00:13:14.810
  • Isn't it true thatin the church of Jesus Christ
  • 00:13:14.844 --> 00:13:17.246
  • we have this beautiful thingthat happens?
  • 00:13:17.279 --> 00:13:19.815
  • We come from all thesedifferent backgrounds,
  • 00:13:19.849 --> 00:13:21.884
  • even from differentreligious backgrounds.
  • 00:13:21.917 --> 00:13:24.653
  • When church members jointhe church,
  • 00:13:24.687 --> 00:13:27.089
  • they join the churchnot their church.
  • 00:13:27.122 --> 00:13:29.825
  • We are all part ofthe body of Christ,
  • 00:13:29.859 --> 00:13:32.061
  • and our unity is notabout our diversity.
  • 00:13:32.094 --> 00:13:34.830
  • Our unity is in Jesus Christ,and it encompasses
  • 00:13:34.864 --> 00:13:38.467
  • the diversity of all of us.
  • 00:13:38.500 --> 00:13:41.136
  • Like snowflakesthat God creates,
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:43.939
  • we are all different.
  • 00:13:43.973 --> 00:13:46.742
  • And yet, it is a beautiful thing
  • 00:13:46.775 --> 00:13:48.811
  • to see the people of Godin unity.
  • 00:13:48.844 --> 00:13:53.849
  • And then, intimacy isthe action of love.
  • 00:13:53.883 --> 00:13:56.151
  • Look at verses 3 and 4,and 7 and 8.
  • 00:13:56.185 --> 00:13:58.687
  • Here is Paul speakingto his beloved Philippians:
  • 00:13:59.855 --> 00:14:04.493
  • "I thank my God uponevery remembrance of you,
  • 00:14:04.526 --> 00:14:10.432
  • always in every prayer of minemaking request for you all
  • 00:14:10.466 --> 00:14:14.770
  • with joy."
  • 00:14:14.803 --> 00:14:17.039
  • And then Paul says,"Just as it is right for me
  • 00:14:17.072 --> 00:14:19.875
  • to think this of you all,because I have you in my heart,
  • 00:14:19.909 --> 00:14:24.446
  • inasmuch as both in my chainsand in the defense
  • 00:14:24.480 --> 00:14:28.684
  • and confirmation of the gospel,you all are fellowshippers
  • 00:14:28.717 --> 00:14:33.122
  • with me in grace.
  • 00:14:33.155 --> 00:14:35.824
  • For God is my witness,"Paul wrote,
  • 00:14:35.858 --> 00:14:38.861
  • "how greatly I long afteryou all in the fellowship
  • 00:14:38.894 --> 00:14:43.332
  • or affection of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:14:43.365 --> 00:14:46.335
  • Now, it's one thing for usto love someone.
  • 00:14:46.368 --> 00:14:50.639
  • It is quite anotherto express that love.
  • 00:14:50.673 --> 00:14:53.842
  • We were surprised to learn thatGale Sayers loved Brian Piccolo
  • 00:14:53.876 --> 00:14:59.114
  • enough to say it out loudin front of a public meeting.
  • 00:14:59.148 --> 00:15:03.352
  • And if we are honest, we haveto admit that unexpressed love
  • 00:15:03.385 --> 00:15:07.056
  • is useless to us becausethe only kind of love
  • 00:15:07.089 --> 00:15:10.960
  • we can use is the lovethat we feel.
  • 00:15:10.993 --> 00:15:13.762
  • And if we never tell anybodythat we love them,
  • 00:15:13.796 --> 00:15:18.367
  • we run the risk of themnever knowing that it's true.
  • 00:15:18.400 --> 00:15:22.805
  • There's a commercial ontelevision for a hearing aid,
  • 00:15:22.838 --> 00:15:25.774
  • and this son tells his dad,"I love you."
  • 00:15:25.808 --> 00:15:30.012
  • And his dad doesn't hear it.
  • 00:15:30.045 --> 00:15:32.381
  • And you can tell by the lookon his father's face that
  • 00:15:32.414 --> 00:15:34.717
  • he's not getting the message.
  • 00:15:34.750 --> 00:15:37.753
  • And then he goes to this miraclehearing place and he gets these
  • 00:15:37.786 --> 00:15:40.990
  • little implants in his ear,and the next time his son says,
  • 00:15:41.023 --> 00:15:44.927
  • "I love you, Dad,"and he doesn't respond.
  • 00:15:44.960 --> 00:15:48.931
  • And the son says again,"I love you, Dad."
  • 00:15:48.964 --> 00:15:51.233
  • He said, "I heard youthe first time,
  • 00:15:51.266 --> 00:15:52.668
  • but I just wantedto hear it twice."
  • 00:15:52.701 --> 00:15:55.938
  • And don't we all feel that way?
  • 00:15:55.971 --> 00:15:58.273
  • If somebody loves you,they need to tell you.
  • 00:15:58.307 --> 00:16:02.678
  • And Paul does not minceany words as he talks
  • 00:16:02.711 --> 00:16:05.681
  • to the Philippians.
  • 00:16:05.714 --> 00:16:07.449
  • He talks to themabout his love for them.
  • 00:16:07.483 --> 00:16:09.885
  • And one of the greatest lovesthat Paul has for all of
  • 00:16:09.918 --> 00:16:13.022
  • the churches to which he wrotewas his gratitude for them.
  • 00:16:13.055 --> 00:16:17.659
  • He just has this spiritof gratitude in his heart.
  • 00:16:17.693 --> 00:16:20.596
  • I wanna run you throughthese verses real quickly
  • 00:16:20.629 --> 00:16:23.499
  • so you get the impactI got when I read them,
  • 00:16:23.532 --> 00:16:26.335
  • but watch the screen and listen.
  • 00:16:26.368 --> 00:16:29.038
  • To the Corinthians he wrote:"I thank my God
  • 00:16:29.071 --> 00:16:31.840
  • always concerning you."
  • 00:16:31.874 --> 00:16:33.876
  • To the Ephesians he wrote:"I do not cease to give thanks
  • 00:16:33.909 --> 00:16:36.945
  • for you, making mention of youin my prayers."
  • 00:16:36.979 --> 00:16:40.416
  • To the Colossians he wrote:"We give thanks to God,
  • 00:16:40.449 --> 00:16:43.185
  • praying always for you."
  • 00:16:43.218 --> 00:16:45.554
  • To the Thessalonians he wrote:"We give thanks to God always
  • 00:16:45.587 --> 00:16:47.956
  • for you all, making mentionof you in our prayers."
  • 00:16:47.990 --> 00:16:51.193
  • To his friend Timothy he wrote:"I thank God as without ceasing
  • 00:16:51.226 --> 00:16:54.863
  • I remember you in my prayers."
  • 00:16:54.897 --> 00:16:57.733
  • And to Philemon he wrote:"I thank my God,
  • 00:16:57.766 --> 00:17:00.002
  • making mention of youin my prayers."
  • 00:17:00.035 --> 00:17:04.173
  • Somebody once told me,"If you're full of gratitude,
  • 00:17:04.206 --> 00:17:06.775
  • you can't be angry at anybody."
  • 00:17:06.809 --> 00:17:09.711
  • And then we come to security,the affirmation of love.
  • 00:17:09.745 --> 00:17:13.282
  • In verse 3 and in verses 5through 7 we read:
  • 00:17:13.315 --> 00:17:16.985
  • "I thank my Godfor your fellowship
  • 00:17:17.019 --> 00:17:19.354
  • in the gospelfrom the first day until now,
  • 00:17:19.388 --> 00:17:22.891
  • being confidentof the very thing,
  • 00:17:22.925 --> 00:17:24.560
  • that he who has beguna good work in you
  • 00:17:24.593 --> 00:17:26.261
  • will complete ituntil the day of Jesus Christ;
  • 00:17:26.295 --> 00:17:29.465
  • just as it is right for meto think this of you all,
  • 00:17:29.498 --> 00:17:32.067
  • because I have you in my heart,inasmuch as both
  • 00:17:32.101 --> 00:17:34.837
  • in my chains and in the defenseand confirmation
  • 00:17:34.870 --> 00:17:37.573
  • of the gospel, you all arepartakers with me of grace."
  • 00:17:37.606 --> 00:17:43.011
  • As Paul expressed his lovefor the believers in Philippi,
  • 00:17:43.045 --> 00:17:45.714
  • he remembered the longand consistent care
  • 00:17:45.747 --> 00:17:49.418
  • they had provided for him.
  • 00:17:49.451 --> 00:17:51.520
  • He described that care as,"fellowship in the gospel."
  • 00:17:51.553 --> 00:17:55.591
  • And then he uses three pointsof time to sorta set
  • 00:17:55.624 --> 00:18:00.395
  • all this in context.
  • 00:18:00.429 --> 00:18:03.132
  • He said, "From the first day."
  • 00:18:03.165 --> 00:18:06.368
  • The first day was the dayPaul walked in
  • 00:18:06.401 --> 00:18:08.370
  • to that little village,met the woman at the water,
  • 00:18:08.403 --> 00:18:11.507
  • and the little church began.
  • 00:18:11.540 --> 00:18:13.876
  • He said, "From the first dayuntil now."
  • 00:18:13.909 --> 00:18:16.912
  • Now he's talking aboutthis church that had grown
  • 00:18:16.945 --> 00:18:19.581
  • to maturity and had actuallyeven flourished
  • 00:18:19.615 --> 00:18:22.251
  • while Paul was in prison.
  • 00:18:22.284 --> 00:18:24.353
  • And then he addsthe third reference to time.
  • 00:18:24.386 --> 00:18:27.489
  • "From the first day until now."
  • 00:18:27.523 --> 00:18:29.791
  • And in the next verse he says,"Until the day of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:18:29.825 --> 00:18:34.329
  • Paul said that the churchin Philippi had started right,
  • 00:18:34.363 --> 00:18:41.303
  • it had continued right,and by the grace of God
  • 00:18:41.336 --> 00:18:44.373
  • it was going to finish right.
  • 00:18:44.406 --> 00:18:47.910
  • If Jesus Christ should tarryin his coming for, let's say,
  • 00:18:47.943 --> 00:18:51.313
  • another 50 years or 100 years--if we put 100 in that equation,
  • 00:18:51.346 --> 00:18:56.251
  • none of us'll be here.
  • 00:18:56.285 --> 00:18:59.655
  • But wouldn't it be somethingto see this church growing
  • 00:18:59.688 --> 00:19:02.891
  • and flourishing and reachingits generation
  • 00:19:02.925 --> 00:19:05.794
  • in even a greater waythan it is now?
  • 00:19:05.827 --> 00:19:08.430
  • Because it started right,it continued right,
  • 00:19:08.463 --> 00:19:11.466
  • and it's goal isto finish right.
  • 00:19:11.500 --> 00:19:14.036
  • How many of you know that isa rare thing in our world today?
  • 00:19:14.069 --> 00:19:17.339
  • I wanna tell you thatthe affirmation of love
  • 00:19:17.372 --> 00:19:20.809
  • from Paul to this church isan example for all of us.
  • 00:19:20.842 --> 00:19:26.114
  • Let me finish with whatwe'll call the maturity of love,
  • 00:19:26.148 --> 00:19:29.284
  • the ambition of love.
  • 00:19:29.318 --> 00:19:31.553
  • Paul prays this prayer.
  • 00:19:31.587 --> 00:19:34.323
  • He says, "And this I pray,that your love may abound still
  • 00:19:34.356 --> 00:19:38.093
  • more and more in kindnessand knowledge and
  • 00:19:38.126 --> 00:19:40.996
  • in all discernment,that you may approve the things
  • 00:19:41.029 --> 00:19:44.199
  • that are excellent,that may be sincere
  • 00:19:44.233 --> 00:19:47.002
  • and without reproachtill the day of Christ."
  • 00:19:47.035 --> 00:19:51.840
  • When Paul used the word to,"abound in love,"
  • 00:19:51.873 --> 00:19:54.910
  • he uses a word that isa beautiful picture.
  • 00:19:54.943 --> 00:19:57.479
  • It's a picture of a littlebucket sitting under a powerful
  • 00:19:57.512 --> 00:20:01.550
  • waterfall, and the wateris going in the bucket,
  • 00:20:01.583 --> 00:20:05.621
  • but most of it's just flowingall around the bucket
  • 00:20:05.654 --> 00:20:08.490
  • 'cause the bucket's too smallto contain the flow
  • 00:20:08.523 --> 00:20:11.627
  • from the waterfall.
  • 00:20:11.660 --> 00:20:15.097
  • Paul uses that expressionand he says,
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:17.232
  • "I want your love for oneanother to be like the waterfall
  • 00:20:17.266 --> 00:20:20.636
  • that abounds,that the love is everywhere.
  • 00:20:20.669 --> 00:20:24.239
  • Don't be happywith where you are
  • 00:20:24.273 --> 00:20:26.008
  • in your current relationships.
  • 00:20:26.041 --> 00:20:27.776
  • I want your relationship of loveto grow more and more."
  • 00:20:27.809 --> 00:20:32.848
  • And then he uses somedefining words to describe
  • 00:20:32.881 --> 00:20:36.385
  • how this is to happen.
  • 00:20:36.418 --> 00:20:38.854
  • This growth andspiritual devotion is the love,
  • 00:20:38.887 --> 00:20:42.157
  • the agape love that we havefor God that is translated
  • 00:20:42.190 --> 00:20:45.694
  • into the love we havefor each other.
  • 00:20:45.727 --> 00:20:47.696
  • "Agape" love is a,"love which loves without
  • 00:20:47.729 --> 00:20:50.299
  • any desire or recognitionof love being returned."
  • 00:20:50.332 --> 00:20:55.937
  • It's a selfless love.
  • 00:20:55.971 --> 00:20:57.472
  • It's a love that doesn't love
  • 00:20:57.506 --> 00:20:58.907
  • because of whatit returns to you.
  • 00:20:58.940 --> 00:21:01.376
  • It's a love that is from God.
  • 00:21:01.410 --> 00:21:04.112
  • And then he talks about growthand spiritual discernment.
  • 00:21:04.146 --> 00:21:07.182
  • He said, "That you may approvethe things that are excellent."
  • 00:21:07.215 --> 00:21:09.985
  • Most scholars translatethat little phrase,
  • 00:21:10.018 --> 00:21:13.221
  • "Things that are different."
  • 00:21:13.255 --> 00:21:15.590
  • Paul says, "I want your loveto be the focus of your life
  • 00:21:15.624 --> 00:21:19.394
  • in such a way thatyou will know
  • 00:21:19.428 --> 00:21:21.763
  • how to makedifficult decisions."
  • 00:21:21.797 --> 00:21:25.267
  • Growth in spiritual devotion,growth in spiritual discernment,
  • 00:21:25.300 --> 00:21:30.706
  • and growthin spiritual development.
  • 00:21:30.739 --> 00:21:34.042
  • He said,"That you may be sincere
  • 00:21:34.076 --> 00:21:36.144
  • and without offenseuntil the day of Christ."
  • 00:21:36.178 --> 00:21:42.184
  • Sincerity speaksof an absence of hypocrisy.
  • 00:21:42.217 --> 00:21:46.955
  • Sincerity is bein'who you are all the time,
  • 00:21:46.988 --> 00:21:49.458
  • wherever you are,no matter who you're with.
  • 00:21:49.491 --> 00:21:52.160
  • It means you don't havetwo selves.
  • 00:21:52.194 --> 00:21:55.364
  • You just have one.
  • 00:21:55.397 --> 00:21:57.332
  • And then the Scripture sayswe're to be,
  • 00:21:57.366 --> 00:21:58.900
  • "Sincere and without offense."
  • 00:21:58.934 --> 00:22:02.437
  • That refers to the ever-presentdanger of offending somebody
  • 00:22:02.471 --> 00:22:06.808
  • who is a follower of Christ.
  • 00:22:06.842 --> 00:22:08.877
  • The word herein the Greek language
  • 00:22:08.910 --> 00:22:10.712
  • is the word "skandalon."
  • 00:22:10.746 --> 00:22:12.714
  • It's from the wordwhich we get "scandal"
  • 00:22:12.748 --> 00:22:16.017
  • in the English language.
  • 00:22:16.051 --> 00:22:17.919
  • And Paul's passion was thatthese believers would live so
  • 00:22:17.953 --> 00:22:21.690
  • that no one would ever stumblebecause of their behavior.
  • 00:22:21.723 --> 00:22:25.827
  • He wanted them to growin spiritual development.
  • 00:22:25.861 --> 00:22:30.999
  • And the final part of his prayeras we end this early section
  • 00:22:31.032 --> 00:22:34.970
  • of Philippians is for theirgrowth in spiritual deportment.
  • 00:22:35.003 --> 00:22:39.241
  • It reads like this in verse 11:"Being filled with the fruits
  • 00:22:39.274 --> 00:22:42.444
  • of righteousness,which are by Jesus Christ,
  • 00:22:42.477 --> 00:22:46.081
  • to the glory and praise of God."
  • 00:22:46.114 --> 00:22:50.152
  • Now, some of you who are asold as I am will remember this.
  • 00:22:50.185 --> 00:22:53.722
  • But when I was going to schoolas a young man,
  • 00:22:53.755 --> 00:22:56.191
  • we had two little sectionson our report card.
  • 00:22:56.224 --> 00:23:00.228
  • One section of the report cardwas for your grades,
  • 00:23:00.262 --> 00:23:04.399
  • but there was another sectionthat was called "deportment,"
  • 00:23:04.433 --> 00:23:08.770
  • your deportment grade.
  • 00:23:08.804 --> 00:23:11.440
  • And I learned early on,I could get straight A's,
  • 00:23:11.473 --> 00:23:14.376
  • but if I messed up onthe deportment grade,
  • 00:23:14.409 --> 00:23:16.311
  • I was in big troublewhen I got home.
  • 00:23:16.344 --> 00:23:19.014
  • What is deportment?
  • 00:23:19.047 --> 00:23:20.348
  • Well, it's how you deportyourself.
  • 00:23:20.382 --> 00:23:22.651
  • It's how you handle yourself.
  • 00:23:22.684 --> 00:23:24.453
  • It's how you live.
  • 00:23:24.486 --> 00:23:26.021
  • It's what you do.
  • 00:23:26.054 --> 00:23:27.355
  • And so, in those earlygrade cards--
  • 00:23:27.389 --> 00:23:29.090
  • anybody remember those,those early grade cards?
  • 00:23:29.124 --> 00:23:31.560
  • You got a gradefor your academic doings,
  • 00:23:31.593 --> 00:23:33.962
  • and you got a gradefor your deportment.
  • 00:23:33.995 --> 00:23:36.431
  • My parents were usually moreconcerned about deportment
  • 00:23:36.465 --> 00:23:40.502
  • than they were about academicsbecause the grade
  • 00:23:40.535 --> 00:23:43.872
  • on deportment told them if I wasbehaving myself in class.
  • 00:23:43.905 --> 00:23:48.510
  • And Paul wanted the believesin Philippi to get high marks
  • 00:23:48.543 --> 00:23:51.379
  • in deportment.
  • 00:23:51.413 --> 00:23:53.014
  • In fact, he prayed thattheir hearts and their lives
  • 00:23:53.048 --> 00:23:55.984
  • would producea rich spiritual harvest.
  • 00:23:56.017 --> 00:23:59.454
  • If their rootswere in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:23:59.488 --> 00:24:01.590
  • then the harvest would bethe fruit of righteousness.
  • 00:24:01.623 --> 00:24:04.359
  • If "godly love" is defined as,"seeking the best interest
  • 00:24:04.392 --> 00:24:07.562
  • of the one loved,"then Paul's love
  • 00:24:07.596 --> 00:24:09.764
  • for the Philippianscertainly qualifies.
  • 00:24:09.798 --> 00:24:12.000
  • How blessed they were to beamong his disciples
  • 00:24:12.033 --> 00:24:15.570
  • and to receive this incredibleletter we know as Philippians.
  • 00:24:15.604 --> 00:24:20.575
  • As wonderful asthe introduction is,
  • 00:24:20.609 --> 00:24:22.711
  • it's only the beginning.
  • 00:24:22.744 --> 00:24:24.579
  • Paul said that the love he hadfor the Philippians and the love
  • 00:24:24.613 --> 00:24:29.784
  • they had for him had totallytransformed everything
  • 00:24:29.818 --> 00:24:35.757
  • so that even in prison,he could write a letter of joy.
  • 00:24:35.790 --> 00:24:43.198
  • And that kind of joy thatsurvives the worst that life
  • 00:24:43.231 --> 00:24:48.870
  • can throw at us is the goalof the Christian life.
  • 00:24:48.904 --> 00:24:53.475
  • Jesus said he wants usto have his joy,
  • 00:24:53.508 --> 00:24:57.679
  • and that joy is at our graspif we will walk
  • 00:24:57.712 --> 00:25:03.451
  • in the Spirit and in faith.
