Filling in the Blanks

Preacher:
Passage: Philippians 1:21

What I value often shows up in my speech, my choices, my reactions—and my banking! What do I really value? One way to find out is by thinking through the following statement: “If I just had ___________, my life would be better, more fulfilling, more meaningful, and happier.” What would go in the blank? Most of the time, that is the thing I value. To be honest, there are a number of things I would put in the blank.

Philippians 1:21 is a statement of what the apostle Paul valued. It is just twelve single-syllable words many have taken for their own declaration. You may be able to fill in the blanks: “For ____ ____, to live is ____________ and to die is ________.” We are going to fill them in this weekend. What does this statement mean? Is it really true for me? What does it look like to live this out? What are the implications for the thing(s) I put in the other blank above?

As we continue The Bible’s Greatest Hits sermon series, I am looking forward to working through those questions as we study one of clearest and most memorable and powerful verses in all of Scripture!
