This world places hope in their skills, their reputation, their accomplishments, their nation, and their nationality. In Philippians 3, the Apostle Paul teaches us that our citizenship is in heaven and that we belong to Jesus. For this reason, our hope is not placed in the rewards that this world has to offer. We are Outsiders. We strive to obtain a different reward — the prize of knowing our true King—Jesus.
We are outsiders because we find meaning and purpose in knowing and pleasing King Jesus.
We are outsiders because we are citizens of the kingdom of heaven.
We are outsiders because we count all worldly prizes as rubbish.
Come to Crossings in 2017 to learn from Philippians 3. Together, we will strive to forget the empty hope of this world. Together, we will press on to know King Jesus and the power of his resurrection. Together, we will be … Outsiders.
