Welcome to week ten of SBC Home Church!
This week, we’re looking at Philippians 3:1-11. In this passage, Paul is going to answer a very important question: what does it take to know Jesus?
Our prayer for this lesson is that we would put our faith and trust in the faithfulness of Jesus and His sufficiency for us.
Before you click the link below, have someone read Philippians 3:1-11 and open in prayer.
(Parents – While watching the sermon, encourage your children to draw a picture of something that sticks out to them about the message. If you have little one’s write “trust in Jesus” in block letters and let them color it during the message.)
Discuss the Word
- What accomplishments are you most proud of in your life?
(What are some things you have done that you are proud of?)
- Why did Paul view his former accomplishments as “rubbish”?
(Why did Paul say the things he was proud of were not important?)
- What sort of things tend to draw you away from Christ?
(What are some things in your life that take your focus away from Christ?)
- Why do we tend to base our worth as Christians on our performance?
(Do you think God’s love for you changes when you make bad choices? What about when you do good things?)
- What do you need to start counting as rubbish for the sake of Christ?
(What things in your life have you made more important than Jesus? How can you make Jesus the most important?)
Practice The Word
Memorize Philippians 3:7-9 “But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.”
Take Action: Make a list of the things in your life that you need to start considering “rubbish” for the sake of Christ and share your list with someone else.
Connect with someone: Call a friend to and ask how you can be praying for them.
Pray The Word
Pray that you would put your identity in Jesus and not in your own accomplishments.
Pray for government officials and church leaders as they make difficult decisions about how to move forward toward gathering again.

Ways to Give
Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God:
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
