Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you. 2Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision; 3for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh, 4although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: 5circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; 6as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless. Phil 3:1-6 (NASB)

  1. Rejoicing through Repetition

    1. Repetition is not difficult to do

    2. Repetition builds safeguards for the hearers

    3. Why do we avoid repetition?

    4. In the Lord: for He has saved us

    5. In the Lord: for He has made us righteous

  2. Rejoicing for what reason?

    1. That bad action has no bearing on God's grace

    2. That good action has no bearing on God's grace

  3. Rejoicing in rejection!

    1. Rejecting false legalism

      Rejecting confidence in ourselves

  4. Rejoicing in what way?

    1. Worship in the Spirit: not limited to one location

    2. Worship in the Glory: not limited by one person

    3. Worship in Christ Jesus: by obedience to Him and directed by His example
