Sermon Audio

This sermon on Philippians 4:1-3 was preached by Tim Abbott at the 9:00 a.m. service of Redemption Hill Church on December 9th, 2018.


Philippians 4:1-3
1 Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. 2 I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. 3 Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.


1. God can bring unity even through conflict.

  • Where in your life do you find pride, selfishness, or entitlement that reveals a commitment to your own agenda and not the Lord’s?
    Have you seen these cause conflict with others?
  • What do you need to believe about God to see victory over these sins (i.e. God is working all things together for my good so I don’t have to demand my way)?

2. True forgiveness is hard (Ephesians 4:32).

  • Do you find it difficult to truly confess your sin and seek forgiveness?
  • Do you find it difficult to truly forgive others “from the heart” (Matthew 18:35)?
  • What do you need to remember about what God has done for you to help you in seeking forgiveness or forgiving others?

3. God has already brought us reconciliation.

  • Where and with whom in your life is Christ calling you to self- sacrifice? To forgiveness? To reconciliation?
  • What opportunities do you have to be a part of helping others reconcile?
  • How could you take steps toward helping in that situation?



Spend time this week reflecting and rejoicing in the Lord for the ever increasing peace that can only be found in Him. Ask God to remind you of the work of reconciliation He has done to bring you into his peace.
