We Are Not Comic Book Heroes (Philippians 4:13)
March 26, 2017 Speaker: Thomas Gardner Series: The Most Misused & Misunderstood Verses of the Bible
Topic: Sermons Passage: Philippians 4:13–4:13
Dunkin Donuts will tell you that the “World Runs on Dunkin.” Nike advises to “Just Do It.” Microsoft asks us “Where Do You Want to Go Today?” Even Walt Disney will tell you that “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” It seems as if this world we live in is driven by cute and catchy slogans. Anywhere we turn we are told that we can “Be All That We Can Be” or that we had better “Not Leave Home Without It.” Life sometimes seems like an endless billboard of witty sayings or motivational promptings. As Christians, we are supposed to live in the world but not to be of the world. Sometimes however we also latch on to passages of God’s Word that, when used out of context, become merely another motivational catchphrase. This upcoming Sunday we will be looking at Philippians 4:13 with the twelfth sermon in the series entitled “The Most Misused and Misunderstood Verses of the Bible.” This is a great verse with tremendous promise but oftentimes it is quoted in all the wrong ways and for all the wrong reasons. I hope you will come out this Sunday not only to hear how this verse has been confused in our lives but to gain a greater understanding of its true power and promise.
