This week Lyndon spoke from Philippians Ch 2. It is all about Humility and Honour. God finds joy in like mindedness, being one in spirit, with the same goal. Humility is the foundation to honour. Without humility we hold no honour. Real humility comes from surrender. We need to get out of the way and let it be ONLY JESUS.
We need to think of heaven in terms of coming down a funnel (A funnel from Heaven), where the top end is wide and large (Heavens end) and the bottom (our end) is small.
Phil 2:5-7 tells us Jesus was a humble man from humble beginnings. His strength was His humility. “Father, not my will but yours be done.”
Phil 2:13-15 If heaven comes down the funnel it can’t help but change that around us – to change our community.
Phil 2:19-29 Paul talks about sending Timothy. He builds him up. As we need to be honouring towards those around us. True honour is not demanded but is a gift. We are called to honour what is God’s, we are all God’s.
Once we get the honour of God working we will get the presence of God as HOST.
