Part 2: Like-Minded
Series: For One Another: What Jesus Wants Us to Be Famous For
Key Passage: Philippians 1:27-2:11
Speaker: Ben Taylor
Discuss a time you were part of a team/group who was like-minded or unified. What was it that unified you? What challenges did you face? How were you able to stay unified through these challenges?
Study Philippians 1:27-2:11
Observations? Questions? What was most interesting to you?
Respond: As Christians, God is not calling us to be the same, but to think the same about Jesus…to consider others better than ourselves…like Jesus.
Paul tells the Philippians to do nothing out of vain conceit. The essence of the meaning is ‘empty glory,’ or to seek significance apart from Jesus. In what ways do we seek to glorify ourselves apart from Jesus? How can this hurt our unity/like-mindedness?
Read Philippians 2:5-8. Discuss how meditating on this should give us the same mindset as believers.
Discuss how you can show humility to others…value them above yourself in the following areas: worship preferences, benevolent ministry, the newcomer to SBC, praying for our leaders, living out Jesus’ speck/plank passage, with our spouses/kids, empathizing with someone different than us, etc.
