My prayers that you will be blessed, you would be encouraged and inspired by this message. Thank you so much for joining and God bless today, we’re gonna be talking about the room to rebuild the room to rebuild from the book of Philippians chapter one we’re gonna start right up at Philippians chapter one reading verses three through 11 3 through 11 paul and timothy servants of christ jesus to all the saints in christ jesus who are at philippi with the overseers and the deacons. Grace to you and peace from our God, our father and the Lord jesus christ. I thank my God and all my remembrance of you always in every prayer of mine for you. Making prayer my prayer with joy because of your partnership in the Gospel. From the first day until now and I am sure of this that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of jesus christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all because I hold you in my heart for you are all part takers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel for God is my witness how I yearn for you all with the affection of christ jesus and it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more with knowledge and all discernment so that you may approve what is excellent and so be pure and blameless for the day of christ filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through jesus christ to the glory and the praise of God make room to rebuild room to rebuild. Dear God, I thank you so much for this time, I thank you for this message, I thank you for your people. I thank you for this house. I pray Lord, that is the word goes forth. I pray that you would reach the hearts of those that need to hear it. Father that it would have its intended purpose and fall on good ground. Good soil. Thank you. We praise you in jesus name, we pray these things. Amen, Amen and Amen. So the Book of Philippians paul is, is writing this book to the church in philippi and this, this uh the city of philippi wasn’t initially a well known or sought after city, but due to some political conquest that took place during this time, it becomes a popular city, it becomes a beloved city. Uh and after they’ve become successful and many elite roman citizens or people of elite status want to settle there, Paul becomes to paul comes to preach about jesus and begins a church, there uh some events happen, they end up kicking him out and uh time passes and the church in philippi realizes that paul is in prison. And so they try to go help him out financially, they help him financially, but they also send with him someone, they send to him someone to boost his morale and update paul on what’s going on with them. And paul is writing this letter once he hears the updates, they’re doing well, he has a great relationship with this church, but there’s an issue that they’re facing, that there’s an issue that they’re up against. And paul uh, begins to speak about or write about this issue as he continues to write to this church and the issue that they’re dealing with is the issue of pride. The issue of pride. Uh and paul is writing to encourage them to strengthen them and to remind them, hey, you’re not done. God is not done with you. He can continue to build, he can continue to rebuild. There’s still work to be done, you’re not done yet. Don’t rest on your laurels yet. And I believe that that is what God wants to remind us today, say, hey, hey, bethel, I’m not done with you yet. I want to rebuild. I wanna rebuild. I want to strengthen. I wanna come alongside. I want to encourage, even though you may feel you’re doing well, even though you may think things are going well. I want to rebuild. I wanna make new, I wanna breathe a new, a new life, a fresh vision of fresh, uh, direction, all of these different things into your lives and into your ministry. So I believe that’s the word of the lord for us uh, in this season, in this year, but also at this time for this message for this time today, uh, Kobe Bryant, one of arguably one of the greatest basketball players to ever pick up a ball and dribble to ever play the game on the national platform. On a worldwide stage, Kobe Bryant. Uh, in the 2009 NBA finals, the Lakers were up to and oh over the Orlando magic. And a reporter asked Kobe after, at a press conference after interview after the game, he goes, hey, you’re up to and are you happy because you’re up to and oh, how do you feel? You’re satisfied. And he goes, Kobe Bryant in pure Mamba mentality fashion. He says, what’s there to be happy about straight face stone cold. Just what was, what’s there to be happy about? The job’s not finished. The job’s not done. He says, the job done is the job is the job finished? We want to, and so we still have some games to play, we still have some games to win. He says, this is the job finished. I don’t think so. Ultimately, the Lakers defeat the magic in five games and they win those finals and go on to win their back to back titles and Kobe Bryant and this mamba mentality says, look, even though I’m up to, oh, I’m not stopping even though I’m up to, oh, I’m not even stopping to, to celebrate. I’m just, I’m just going for the kill. The job is not finished, Kobe had this, this, this capacity, this room to continue to grow, to continue to evolve, to continue to get the work done to continue to rebuild for the next game. And for us as well, we need to be able to have a mentality and realize and say, hey, I may be good at this, but I can be even better. I may be. I may be satisfied with this, but maybe I need a holy dissatisfaction to be able to, uh, rise up and do what the Lord has actually called me to do and not rest on what I’m comfortable with. And so we see that paul is writing to this city to this church in philippi because uh, there’s a song came out years ago back then. They didn’t want me now I’m hot, they’re all on me right back then nobody was checking for filipe, nobody was wanting to know what was going on with phillipe. But as soon as some of these adjustments took place, political adjustments, everyone was moving their roman citizens were uh, finding it like a great place to be. And now Philippians like, oh yeah, look at us, look at us, look at us and the church is doing the same thing. Feeling very prideful. And paul is saying, look, look, look, no, this is not how we need to be as sons and daughters of God, we need to behave differently. And so in his opening text, he grounds them and anchors them by letting them know that he’s been uh grateful for them, letting them know that hey look, this is paul and timothy were writing to you were servants of christ jesus, he lets them know right off the bat, hey, we’re servants, we’re servants. Uh we’ve come to serve and then he says, look to all the saints in christ jesus who are at philippi with the overseers and the deacons, which lets us know that, look, he left this church in good hands, they have overseers deacons, there’s a structure that’s in place and then he says Grace to you and peace from God our father and from the Lord jesus christ, he thanks God for them, always in his prayers and prayers, he’s remembering them and he thanks God with them and he’s he’s so joyful for them. And then he says something interesting. He says, because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now from the first day until now. And then he says in verse seven, it is right for me to feel this way about you all because I hold you in my heart for you all are part takers with me of grace in both my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel. I love this text because it lets us know the first point. And it’s that building, it’s a process. It’s a process. There’s a process to rebuilding and there’s a process to building. There’s a there’s a process, you don’t just do something and boom, it happens automatically. You’re done. You have to lay one brick at a time, you have to get your tools, you have to from building anything, building a relationship to building trust, to building a small shack. So even a tall skyscraper, it’s a process. It’s not an overnight thing. Okay, This isn’t a easy, you know, pop it in the in the microwave popcorn kind of situation. No, no, no. This takes time. There is a process that is involved and paul lets us see that he was not going through this process alone, but had a church that was with him in the process. Who was with him in the process. He says, look, I’m I’m grateful because of your partnership in the Gospel. From the first day that we met from the first day that we connected from the first day that I told you about this good news of jesus christ and that this church was formed and we came together from the first day I appointed these deacons from the first day I appointed these overseers from the first day that I began to put these bricks down from the first day that we’ve been involved with one another until now? I find myself in a different place now in prison and you’re still reaching out to me, you’re still sending loved ones to me, You’re still sending me updates about how you’re doing, you’re still walking with me in this process on this journey. How many of you know, it’s important that we do not go through it alone. We do not go through it alone that we have. People that can walk with us in this process. People that don’t abandon us in this process. People that don’t leave us high and dry in this process, this Philippians Church, amen. Can we get some a men’s in the chat? Can we get some claps, hand claps in the chat? How many of you know what, what’s the song? Have a little help with my friend? Right, well what do you do if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me, lend me your ear and I’ll sing you a song, I will try not to sing out of key again. Right? So, and and it lets you know, hey, like I’m having some some time with with my friends, he’s talking about something different, but it lets you know that in this process. Even if I dropped the ball, even if I sing out of tune, are you gonna walk out, are you gonna stick with me, right, are you gonna walk out or are you gonna continue to build with me? Continue to walk with me in this process? He says from the first day, all the way until now, you’ve been with me, you’ve been a partner in the Gospel. There was nothing that was greater to paul than the gospel, Paul in Romans. 1 1 6 says 1 16. He says, I am not ashamed of the gospel of jesus christ. And so this gospel is paramount. This Gospel is important. And we see that paul says, look, you were partnering with me in the Gospel from that very first day. All the way until now, I’m in chains. I’m still writing letters to other churches and yet you’re sending someone to visit me to strengthen me both financially and to be a pat on the back in these difficult times. Can we get an amen for the financial blessing somebody? Okay? Can we get an amen for the financial blessing somebody? And then can we also get an amen for the physical restoration? The the strength Hey paul, how are you? It’s it’s so good. Especially in these times of difficulty with with Covid has kept us six ft apart has kept us masked up. But remember the time when you can hug someone and feeling embrace, when you can hug someone feeling embraced and not think in the back of your mind. Okay, am I gonna regret this? We’re gonna regret this later. Right? That’s what paul is experiencing? Even though he’s in in prison, he’s sharing a connection with someone from the church in philippi and what a blessing it is for him. And then he says, it is right for me to feel this way about you all. It’s right for me to be excited about you all. It’s right for me to be joyful to to love this, to love you guys as a church. Why? Because I hold you in my heart, because your part your partners in the Gospel. But then in verse seven, he says, you are part takers with me of Grace. Listen, Saints of God, it’s great to know that you’re not going through it alone, that you have people with you. He says, look, it’d be great if I was having this Grace by myself. Right? When paul prayed to the Lord, he says, what my grace is sufficient for you. So God’s grace is sufficient for me. And that’s a blessing. That’s great. That’s wonderful. But it’s not just enough for me. It’s enough for others as well. Your part takers with me in the in this Grace you’ve tasted and seem like I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is good. We’re linking arms in this journey, walking hand in hand together, your part takers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel. When times get difficult, you’re not gonna up and leave me, the Grace of God is with me, keeping me as I’m imprisoned and as I’m imprisoned, you’re not gonna forget about me, you’re not going to say, oh, we’re having a good holy ghost time up in here in philippi and just leave me to be forgotten in this jail cell. But you are part takers with me of Grace in my imprisonment and in my defense and confirmation of the Gospel. So, as I preach the Gospel, as I defend the Gospel, you two are by my side, partaking with me in Grace Building is a process. It’s a it’s a process and it’s a process that we need to know that we’re not alone in. It’s a process that we need to know that do we have people that are willing to build with us on the journey? Many of us, especially this past uh throughout this pandemic these past two years now, uh we felt the weight of loneliness, right? The weight of social social distancing the weight of quarantining. And it’s it’s been a jarring feeling because the community that we thought we once had, uh we now have to be intentional even more so intentional about chasing after it. And some of us, if we’re not gonna if we’re if we’re being honest, some of us maybe have felt abandoned in this time, some of us maybe have felt neglected and forgotten in this time. Some of us may be felt all that this, this process of of getting through this pandemic season is difficult and I’ve lost some friends along the way, Maybe some of us even have lost some some church church friends along the way or lost some things along the way. And it’s a process. And in the midst of this process, paul is saying for him, okay, this is great. And it’s amazing because I was imprisoned and they’re with me, I’m defending the gospel and they’re still with me and for us, we need people like those in our lives. My prayer is that this church would be a church that’s like that for others, we’re not perfect. No, we have our flaws, but we want to be able to walk alongside people in their process. And as God is building us and as we’re being built, we have to understand that there are those that are willing to walk with us through the ebbs and the flows, the highs and the lows of life. So the first point is rebuilding is a process. It’s a process and it’s one that we want to not do alone. And yes, that means we want people to walk with us. But the second point is that we want to know that God is rebuilding with us. It’s not something that we are doing all by ourselves or even that we’re doing with our brother or sister or neighbor or cousin or friend or wife or aunt or uncle without God’s involvement, God’s hand is ever present. It’s just like in the in the book of Esther you may not read his name, but his hand is is moving in and throughout this book and in the same way when God seems far off, he is still present, he is still working, he is still rebuilding with us in verse six, he says, I am sure of this, paul writes that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of jesus christ, God is building with us, rebuilding in us, rebuilding through us. He says that I’m sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of jesus christ it’s important for us to realize that yes, rebuilding is a process because you know saying, OK, I’m going to revisit this thing that I started to build and I’m going to continue to build it, I’m going to continue to lay some some bricks on this thing that I started, but maybe didn’t finish or I finished and I realized now I have to continue to build on it or continue to redo something else or another portion in it. I need to strengthen this piece and rebuild on it, right, It’s not something that we’re doing alone because paul says, look the same God that began this work, we are his workmanship paul writes created in christ, jesus to do good works, good works that he prepared for us beforehand. And so what we realize is that God the same God that is creating this work in us is building in US, building in us and he’s beginning this good work that’s not gonna be left incomplete. God’s not getting incomplete, it’s going to be completed. The God that started the work is going to be the god that finished the work. The God that started the work is gonna be the god that sustains the work in the middle and continues to work on the work and build on the work when we feel like throwing in the towel, the God that that that called us to this thing and put our hands to the plow is gonna be the God that redirects our hands to the plow and sets our face like a flint. Even when we feel like giving up, even when we feel like running away, even when we feel like throwing in the towel the same God that started with us, it’s gonna be the god that allows us to cross the finish line. Can I get an amen somebody in the chat? Thank you Lord, thank you Lord, thank you Lord, thank you Lord. That you are building us, you are building us and you are building with us. I love paul because he is so confident, he says, I am sure of this, I am sure of this fact that he who began this work will bring it to completion when at the day of jesus christ one day, at the name of jesus christ, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus christ is Lord. And at that day Jesus will either say depart from me, you workers of iniquity, I never, I knew you or he will say well done, my good and faithful servant enter into thy rest. I charge us today to let us know and resolve in our hearts and minds that it’s not done until we hear well done, it is not done until we hear well done, it’s not done until we hear well done. What does paul say? Does he say he’s gonna bring it to completion? Uh when you, you know, you have a giant altar call and you know that this place is, is filled with people and holy spirit comes down like a flood and all you know, all these crazy events are happening, miracles, signs and wonders, that’s when he’s gonna bring it to completion. Does he say that this, this work that he began in, you was gonna be uh brought to completion when you get this job and you’re making those, those those six figures, does he say he’s gonna bring it to completion when you finally have, you know the house you’ve been praying for? We’re looking for, does he say, you know, whatever the situation you fill in the blank, did you say that? No, no, no. He says he’s going to bring it to completion at the day of jesus christ when jesus shows up, cracks the sky and comes on on his horse and and says look, I’m coming as conquering king and every knee bows and every tongue confess is and he says, come my child enter into my rest. Well done. That’s when he’s going to bring it to completion. That’s when he’s gonna bring it to completion. What does the text say in? Where is it jude? Right, somebody is saying that right now they’re following with me JEE. There we go, June 24. Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy to the only God, our Savior through jesus christ. Our Lord be glory and majesty, Dominion and authority before all time now and forever more amen to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy Now him who is able to keep you from stumbling. He can present you blameless in life but also prevent present you blameless when you’re at the throne being judged for your works and your works are saying throw this, throw this person right into the depths right into the pit. But he’s able how many of you know he is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless because the blood cleanses the blood washes the blood redeems the blood makes new. The blood uh rebuilds and regenerates and strengthens and and the blood still works. It’s not going to lose its power. And so for us today, we can take courage in that fact and know that God is building in us, building through us, building with us. He who began this work is faithful to bring it to completion at the day of jesus christ. Let us not forget that Saints of God when we want to throw in the towel, will understand that God is working with us when it seems too difficult to understand that God is working with us. When we think we’ve arrived, understand hey, it’s not done until we hear well done right. It’s not done until we hear well done. God is working in us. God is working through us. God is working with us to will and to do his good pleasure. So it’s important sins of God to know that God is rebuilding. He’s rebuilding with us. It may seem like a difficult task like a daunting task like oh my gosh, there’s so much on my shoulders, but just as good as God told paul, my grace is sufficient. My strength is made perfect in weakness when it’s too difficult when it seems like uh there’s so much going on and you you just you just need to to to to to to just give up. God is saying, no, no, I’m with you. I’m rebuilding with you. My grace is sufficient for you. Do not give up, continue to push, continue to pray, continued to lay brick after brick and rebuild. Now. The third piece about us, making room to rebuild is doing just that we need to make room to rebuild. Paul writes at the latter portions of Philippians chapter one he says it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent and so be pure and blameless for the day of christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness, that comes through jesus christ to the glory and the praise of God. And it is my prayer church in philippi and it is my prayer bethel gospel Tabernacle, that your love may abound more and more with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent and so be pure and blameless for the day of christ filled with the Fruit of righteousness. That comes through jesus christ to the glory and praise of God. What I love about paul is, he realizes that this church is struggling with humility, struggling with pride, thinking more of themselves than they ought. And We we see him later on in the text. If we read through the book, we see him address this directly, but right in these opening 11 verses, there’s nothing like putting things in their proper perspective by reminding us that this life is not it, this is not the end, There’s a comma after we breathe our final breath here and it continues on in the next life when we close our eyes. In this life, the text says, many sleep. We fall asleep to wake up again and eternity wake up again to be with jesus, Wake up again to live with the consequences of our decisions. And so paul lets them know. Hey, there’s the day of jesus christ, right? And God is building with us. There’s uh, he lets them know again, he says, uh, you have to be blameless, pure and blameless for the day of christ right again. Hey, there’s more than what we see here. There’s more than what we’re building ourselves up to be here. There’s more than the, the laurels that were resting on here, the Thrones that we may be sitting on here, the notoriety that we may be chasing after here, the salary that we may be running for here, he says, your love may abound more and more, he says, be filled with the fruit of Righteousness. How can we Saints of God be filled with the fruits of righteousness? If we’re filled with pride, how can we Saints of God be filled with the fruits of Righteousness? If we’re filled to the brim resting on our laurels resting on what makes us us resting on uh the great things that we’ve done in the past, How can we be filled with the fruit of Righteousness. If we feel we’ve done enough, we need to make room to rebuild so many times. We look at God’s finished work in one season and think that’s it. Uh huh. Listen, so many times we look at God’s finished work in one season and we think this is it, God is done and I’m grateful. I’m grateful that he’s done hallelujah, thank you, jesus. I’ve reached the peak. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you everyone. Thank you so much. I’ve I’ve reached the peak. I’m I’m done now, I’m done. I’m good. We look at God’s finished work in one season and say, I’m done. God’s done. I’m married. I’m good. I’m single. I’m great. I’m good. I got that apartment. I’m good. I’m done. I got the house. Oh my gosh, I’m, I’m good. I’m done. I went to therapy. I’m done. I’m great. I’m done. I’m making this this amount of money at my job. I’m great. I’m done. I got the car. I’ve been praying for hoping for saving for, I’m great, I’m done. That’s wonderful. I’ve reached this goal, this milestone that I’ve been hoping for and praying for and reaching for for a long time now, that’s that’s great. I’m done. Thank you Lord and we can be earnest and honest about giving glory to God and thanking God and being saying, okay, I’m great, I’m done. Thank you God. But have you ever stopped to consider that God wants to revisit and rebuild. Have you ever stopped to consider that? Yeah, yeah, Yeah. God may have blessed me with this, but just because I have, this doesn’t mean that God won’t want to revisit it and tweak my heart in the process. Mm hmm. We rest on the laurels, we rest on the victories, but we need to attack it like, like Kobe mamba mentality. The job finished and your job is not finished. The Lakers, They did a what? A threepeat threepeat. That means they won the championship, not one time, not two times, but three times back to back to back. Listen, that’s being hungry, that’s being dominant. And for us in our lives many times we can just rest and say, okay, I, I’ve reached this peak here. I’m good. And God allows us to celebrate in those seasons. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that we should not celebrate the seasons of victory in our lives. That’s not what I’m saying. I don’t want you to go, you know, log off and say, oh, pastor Ron wants me to be a grouch Pastor wants me to look at my house and be unsatisfied with what God blessed me with. No, no, no, that’s, that’s not what I’m saying at all. What I’m saying is I, I want us to be open and honest about how we feel about what God has blessed us with and the space that it maybe has taken up in our lives if God wants us to be filled with the fruit of Righteousness and we’ve become so grateful for the gift, thankful for the gift that we don’t know how to adjust our lives. When God says to adjust in relationship to the gift, then that’s a problem. That’s the problem. We need to be able two not be so full. Ah sometimes we can get so full of what God has done and so restful in the season that he has blessed us with. That we fail to see that he’s not done building that is not done building. He wants to build again. He wants to rebuild in our lives. The blessing of God is just that a blessing. But sometimes the blessing can block us from seeing what God wants to do next. God said to Abraham, Take your son, Isaac the son that I have promised you your only son. And offer him as a burnt offering of sacrifice. Genesis uh he says take your son, your only son and offer him as a burnt offering of sacrifice. And so we realized that it’s it’s a difficult time to let go. But sometimes we have to let go of Genesis. Chapter 22. God tested Abraham and he said to him, Abraham and Abraham says, here I am now God has been through a process with Abraham. Remember we said rebuilding is a process, God changed his name. You know, before God changes his name, he changed his location, changes his location from her and says go to the land that I’m gonna show you. So he goes and ventures on out. Eventually he changes his name and his wife’s name from Abram to Abraham to Sarai to Sarah. And he makes him a promise this is gonna make a great nation out of you. And then he says, you know by this sun this shall happen, you’re gonna have a son with your wife and this is how it’s gonna happen. And uh God tests Abraham and says to him, Abraham and Abraham says, here I am. And God says something that sends a chill down Abraham spine and shocks him. He says, take your son your only son Isaac whom you love. And go to the land of Mount Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall to tell you, jesus Abraham through tears through difficulty is about to go through with it. And the angel of the Lord stops him and says, no, no, no, stop, don’t do with this. Don’t go through with it. And the Lord says later, he says, ah I’ve seen Abraham. Do not lay your hand on the boy verse 12 or do anything to him now for I know now that you fear God, seeing that you have not withheld your son your only son from me. Now, God is not going to ask us to do this in this day and age and in this time God’s not gonna ask us to do this today. But there are some blessings that God has blessed us with that he’s going to have us not have a closed fist with but an open palm with the Isaac was the son that was promised to Abraham and God asked him to to lay it down, lay him down. And in the same way, God may ask us to lay some things down, to lay some individuals down. Some relationships down. Do not let the blessing block you from whatever your next season is for us. It’s important in this time to not uh as we begin this new year to not walk through this life with a closed fist but to walk through it with an open palm as I close. It’s important for us to to to see that we can too easily be satisfied with the blessings to easily be satisfied with what has been built, that we can be so perplexed and confused when God says, okay, now go back and rebuild. And and sometimes in rebuilding, you have to tear down to rebuild again. Listen, listen, sometimes rebuilding isn’t just adding on to something that’s already built, but tearing down to build it again, we’re gonna have fun this year. We’re gonna have fun this year, God is is he’s making moves, he’s making moves for sure. Ah let’s let’s pray, dear God, help us, Lord help us, Lord not to be satisfied not to be satisfied. Help us Lord to develop a hunger and a thirst for righteousness so that we could be filled. Help us Lord to see things, not from our perspective, not from our site, not from our vantage point. Oh God, but from your perspective with your eyes, with your vantage point, help us Father to make room to rebuild. Help us Father to make room to rebuild room to rebuild. I pray Lord for those that are listening are watching and are struggling to make room. They’re holding onto some things that maybe you want them to let go of. They’re not willing to take a step back and just to thank you for what you’ve done and say, okay now what’s the next chapter looking like? But they’re stuck on what you’ve done. It’s a good thing. It’s a great thing. But don’t let the blessing block. I pray Lord that you would allow them to, that you would allow them to be able to move forward in victory. Move forward in confidence, move forward knowing that you are the God that you say you are thank you, I praise you. I give you praise honor and glory. We ask all of these things in jesus name. Amen. Now if you’re here and you heard this message or listening and you heard this message? My prayer is that you would text saved to the bottom of the number at the bottom of your screen. If you don’t know jesus christ. If you don’t have relationship with him I pray you would text saved the number at the bottom of your screen. We have people that would want to pray with.
