Filled with short and reflective vignettes focused on the central theme of having the same attitude as Jesus, Philippians helps readers see their own story as an effervescent expression of Jesus’ story. With words such as joy, glad, and rejoice, Philippians is filled with hope in its tone.
Join ValleyPoint Church as we walk verse by verse through the book of Philippians. The Apostle Paul points to Jesus and presents an unusual view of life – a surprising way to express our love for God and our love for others.
“An Unusual View of Life: The Book of Philippians”
Happy New Year and welcome to ValleyPoint’s “Life Verse” series. Since 2013, this annual series has started the year with an emphasis on choosing a verse (or two) to challenge, encourage, and sustain.
Life Verse 2020 will help us view Scripture as a mentor, guide, and close friend. Life Verse 2020 will help all look to the ancient words of the Bible as something that “humbles us, critiques us, and encourages us with God’s love and grace despite our flaws” (Keller, The Prodigal Prophet, p. 106).
Scripture matters! Join ValleyPoint Church as we choose a life verse and then search together for words to serve as a “lamp to our feet” (Psalm 119:105).
Life Verse 2020
Sunday, December 29th, 2019
Ultimately the narrative of Christmas flows from the sequential events surrounding the birth of Jesus. With his birth came LIGHT. The advent of Jesus was much more than simply a “good day.” The prophet Isaiah spoke of Jesus’ luminous arrival by stating, “The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine (Isaiah 9:2).
Beyond the lights that brighten trees, homes, and other décor, Jesus is LIGHT. “Tis the season” for LIGHT.
Join ValleyPoint Church as we progress through the month of December with expectation, anticipation, and an increase of LIGHT.
