Philippian Generosity

Deacon Appreciation Day


  • Service is not about comparing ourselves to ourselves, others, the culture, or the world around us (2 Cor 10:12).
  • Service is comparing ourselves with the Standard, the Bible as we look into the mirror of God's Word (Rom 12:1-2).


Key Points 

  1. Sometimes we love and cannot show that love because there is a lack of opportunity to serve (Phil 4:10-13).
  2. When the church at Phillipi had the chance, they served as often as they could (Phil 4:14-18).
  3. Anytime we share our love and appreciation: God sees and responds with supply for us and for others through us (Phil 4:19-20).
