Joyful Children of God

October 13, 2019 Speaker: Mahlon Smith Series: Philippians - The Book of Christian Joy

Topic: Joy Passage: Philippians 2:12–2:30

Sermon summary - One author has defined joy in this way: “Joy is the flag that flies over the castle of the heart when the king is in residence there.” A child of God ought to have in their life a seeable sense of joy in God. In today’s message, we’re going to discover what the Bible means when it talks about children of God. 
1. Entry point of God’s children – the new birth.
    Philippians 2:12-13
• Young children, naturally, are teachable, trusting, tender, truthful and thirst for knowledge.
• God’s children, supernaturally, are called, converted and desire closeness to God.  
2. Evidences of God’s children. Philippians 2:14-30
• Crave God. 
• Centered on others. 
• Christ-like minds. 
• Concern for their testimony. 
• Committed to scripture. 
• Crave joy in the Lord.
