GOD’S MAN Building Life Together – 8 Philippians 2:19–30 Pastor Daniel Cassels May 20, 2018
Paul offers two men as examples of the kind of man who will make a difference in the world:
• Timothy I have no one else like him vs. 20 (NIV) • Epaphroditus ... hold men like him in highest honor vs. 29 (Ph)
1. Discovers _______________ • Men who believe relationships are more valuable than things For I have no one else like-minded who will genuinely care about your interests; all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. Philippians 2:20–21 (CSB)     ... they are all wrapped up in their own affairs ... (Ph)
The Samaritan - Luke 10:30-36
2.  Demonstrates _______________ • Men who put conviction before conformity But you know his proven character, because he has served with me in the gospel ministry like a son with a father. Philippians 2:22 (CSB)
The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out. Prov. 10:9 (NIV)
A righteous person acts with integrity; his children who come after him will be happy. Proverbs 20:7 (CSB) 
3.  Displays _______________ • Men who convey cooperation before competition
I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier ...  vs. 25a (NIV)
So all the men of Israel gathered united against the city. Judges 20:11 (CSB) 
4.  Delivers _______________ • Men who choose Christ before comfort (Epaphroditus) "... is your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs. ... He was ill, and almost died.  But God had mercy on him ... " Philippians 2:25b-27 (NIV)   Faith, by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:17 (NIV)
5.  Develops _______________ • Men who put service before security Therefore, welcome him in the Lord with great joy and hold people like him in honor, because he came close to death for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up what was lacking in your ministry to me. Philippians 2:29–30 (CSB) 
Therefore, brothers and sisters, in view of the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1–2 (CSB)
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me and the gospel will save it. Mark 8:35 (CSB) 
For the eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to show himself strong for those who are wholeheartedly devoted to him. You have been foolish in this matter. Therefore, you will have wars from now on.” 2 Chronicles 16:9 (CSB)
