Weekly Sermon Questions

Questions for Lent 2 (Sunday, March 17th)

Philippians 3:17-4:1
  1. In 3:18-20, Paul makes a sharp contrast between those who live as enemies of the cross of Christ and those whose citizenship is in heaven. Looking at the passage, what contrasts does Paul draw between these groups of people?
  2. In v. 21, Paul contrasts our present bodies (which he calls ‘of low quality’) with the ‘glorious’ bodies we will have in the resurrection. Have you ever meditated on what the resurrection body will be like? How can meditation upon the contrast between our lowly bodies and the promised glorious bodies in Jesus Christ help us to persevere in our heavenly citizenship when this is difficult?
  3. What is one way we can practice our ‘heavenly citizenship’ this week?
