Following Jesus is not like running in a neat circle; we must learn to move creatively in and about the obstacles of life. In this first video, meet the Ignition 7 Team and watch incredible free running footage, comedy clips, and a message to keep you sustained in grace. John Driver and his friends (Illusionist Brock Gill and Comedian Jonnie W.) speak truth in an engaging and entertaining way to help you embark upon a lifelong journey to becoming a disciple rather than just fizzling out in a fleeting emotional moment. Among many other things, in these seven days, we want to help you learn to read the Bible in small segments. So by the end of this week, you will have read the first chapter of Philippians.
The LUP Bible passage for today is Philippians 1:1-6. Watch the video, read the passage, and then use these LUP questions for additional reflection.
1. Why is it important to know who wrote this letter (vs. 1)?
2. What do Paul’s words in verses 3-5 show us about his love for the people of Philippi and his own personal spiritual habits/disciplines?
3. What is Paul sure of in verse 6? What does this mean for us?
