What does a follower of Jesus look like? As a group, we are incredibly diverse (thankfully!). Young and old, different ethnicities, some with tattoos, and some without; some are loud, while some are quiet, and the list of our differences could go on and on. There probably isn't a more diverse group around, but amidst all this diversity, should there be some common characteristics - some qualities that define who we are?
Many of the major nations of the world have stereotypes to describe the characteristics of their citizens. When we think of Canadians, Americans, Germans or Australians (to name a few) there are probably attitudes and characteristics that pop into our minds. Regardless of what our passport may say, as followers of Jesus we are citizens of Heaven - and just like the Nations of this world, there are qualities and characteristics that we are to be known for.
The book of Philippians describes a life that is joy filled, focused, humble and content. Who wouldn't want to live a life that looked like that? These are some of the qualities that we are encouraged to display, and be known for, as citizens of Heaven. Join us for the sermons series, "Citizens", as we make our way through Philippians, learning how to live a life described by these qualities.
Step into anxiety to find peace.
