Philippians 3:17-21

1. The life of a Christian involves learning from others. Jesus instructed us to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). Paul also told us to learn from others (Philippians 3:17). Who are you currently learning from and what are you learning? Who are the people in your life that you have the opportunity, and responsibility to be an example to? Are you leading a life worthy of imitation?

2. Paul says about the enemies of the cross of Christ that they have their minds “set on earthly things”. Obviously we all have to think about getting an education, earning a living, finding a spouse, taking care of our possessions. What is the difference between having a mind “set” on these things versus just thinking about them to be responsible?

3. Read Philippians 3:20-21. Paul reminds us that our citizenship is in heaven. What does the statement "we are citizens of heaven" mean to you? What happens when we begin to get too comfortable on earth and forget to focus on our eternal citizenship?

1. What stood out to you the most from today’s service? What did God speak to you?

2. In Philippians 3:4-6 Paul says “if anyone had a reason to be prideful” it was him and then he lists out his “accomplishments”. Paul could have found his significance in these things.

3. Focus on Paul’s statement in vs 8 that he considers everything else a loss compared to “knowing Christ as Lord”. What do you think that (considering everything as loss) looks like practically for us today?
