Above Average (Philippians 2:19-23)

Pastor Justin Pratt, September 7, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Are you an average Christian? Or do you go above and beyond the calling to be the best Christian you can? Not for yourself, but for the betterment of the Kingdom of God.

Are you happy with the status quo, just fulfilling the minimum requirements to call yourself a Christian? Do you have the attitude of "I'm saved and going to Heaven, that's all that matters?"

Or do you do all that you can for God? You attend every time the door is open. You share the Gospel with co-workers. You are willing to work behind the scenes, cleaning or repairing things in the church, just so you can serve Him.

God wants us to be more than average. But, he wants us to do it with the right heart; for Him, and not for ourselves. Not so others can say "look at him" but so others can see God in your life. Listen to tonight's message and take the test. Evaluate your life and determine if you are Above Average.

Philippians 2:19-23

19But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. 20For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. 21For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's. 22But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel. 23Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me. (KJV)
