Joy In Your Life || It’s All Rubbish || Philippians 3:1-11

If you’ve done enough “good things” in your life, you get to go to the Good Place, right? And if you haven’t done enough “good things”, then you’ll go to the Bad Place, right? God says no! The only right way to be right with God is through a relationship with Jesus. It’s not about the things that you do in your life, it’s all about Jesus. Paul, in his letter to the Philippians even says it’s not about Jesus PLUS anything. It isn’t about Jesus plus these few key things, or traditions; it’s just about putting your faith in Jesus. If you think you’ve done too many bad things, so many that God can’t love you, to put it plainly: you are wrong. Anyone who puts their faith in Jesus can receive God’s love and forgiveness.

Joy In Your Life || Work Out Your Salvation || Philippians 2:12-30

Our journey through Paul’s first-century letter to the church in Philippi continues this week, exploring a slightly unusual phrase: “…work out your salvation…”. Tim looks at what this phrase doesn’t mean, to try to understand what it does mean.  What do we do in our lives to ‘work out our salvation’? Tim offers a framework in his talk, which you can find here.

“I’m thankful to God for a wonderful family here, that this can be our family. The range of wonderful people that come through the doors, all sorts of people, from all sorts of walks of life is just wonderful.” – Chris

Our Community

When moving into this area, something which struck me was the strong sense of community: communal vegetable gardens; communal libraries; communal running groups; communal history; communal stories; communal tragedy; and communal triumphs.  It’s a delight to be a part of – thank you Jesus for Nillumbik Shire! God had our community in mind when he made covenant with Abraham!  That his offspring would be a people who knew their God and they would be God’s people.  They would be a…
