  • Ancient Of Days
  • All Of This And More
      • Philippians 2.6-8ESV

      • Philippians 2.9-11ESV

  • Main Idea
    Jesus is worthy of our obedience and praise.
    but...
    Why is Jesus worthy?
    First...

    Jesus is worthy because of who He is

    Philippians 2:6 (ESV)
    6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
    We talked about this last time...
    Jesus is fully God.
    If anyone of His disciples wanted to see what God looked like or how God behaved they needed only to look at Jesus.
    John 14:8–9 ESV
    8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
    Jesus is worthy because of who He is...
    Second...

    Jesus is worthy because of what He did

    Philippians 2:7–8 (ESV)
    7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
    Jesus performed the most loving, kind, generous, selfless, hardest, and most challenging thing in all of history...
    He loved and died for wretched sinners like us...
    Jesus is worthy because of what he did
    The last thing I have to say about Jesus’ worth is...
    ONE DAY...

    Jesus’ worth will be recognized by all

    Philippians 2:9–11 (ESV)
    9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
    We see two responses from creation regarding Jesus...
    Complete Obedience
    Verbal Praise
    Leave the slide up
    This is where all of creation is headed. Whether we like it or not.
    The good news is that the reasons for it heading towards this are compelling enough to make us want it to happen this way.
    Think of who Jesus is:
    Perfect
    Sinless
    Loving
    Omnipotent
    Omnipresent
    Glorious in every way
    Think of what Jesus did:
    Go to gospel slide
    Left his glorious throne to come rescue you
    Patiently loved people on earth just like you
    Suffered the way we deserve to
    Died in the wrath of God so we don’t have to
    Resurrected from the grave in order for us to do so too
    Ascended into heaven and promised to come back for us
    You all have amazing glorious reasons to long for this future:
    Point back to slide
    Two responses from creation regarding Jesus...
    Complete Obedience
    Verbal Praise
    What should we do now?
    Turn to Jesus in obedient faith
    Confess to Jesus things you have loved more than Him
    Learn how to enjoy praising Jesus
    Read some of the Bible everyday
    Ask a WSM leader to spend extra time with you
    Grow Group Questions
    Share with the group about someone you know that loves to obey and praise Jesus.
    What does their life look like? Are they perfect? Do they ever mess up? Do they own up to their faults?
    Share with the group about a time when you felt a strong desire to obey Jesus?
    What made you want to do that? Do you still feel that way? Why or why not?
    Share with the group about a time when you felt a strong desire to praise Jesus?
    When was it? Was it during a retreat or service? Has it happened when no one is around?
    Share with the group one area of your life you’d like to see more obedience in that you would like prayer support for.
