THAT I MAY KNOW HIM: Philippians 3:10-11


OUTLINE

I. Knowing Jesus more is the highest internal goal of a saint (v. 10a)

II. Knowing Jesus more imparts resurrection power to saints (v. 10b)

III. You will know Jesus and his power more as you share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death (v. 10c)

IV. You will know jJsus fully, when he vindicates all your sufferings, becoming like him in his death (v. 10c)

V. You must persevere in the faith—you will persevere only by fixing your eyes on Jesus (v. 11)

DISCUSSION

I. In verse 10 Paul returns to the subject of knowing Christ Jesus. By what “means” does Paul desire to “know him”? Why do you think Paul wants to “attain the resurrection of the dead”?

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We are a cooperating member of The Southern Baptist Convention. We confess the 1689 second london baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the reformationas well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
