Philippians - Honor One Another I: Heaven Here and Now
Philippians 1:8-11, 20-24, 27
Brandon Cook. Paul writes from to the Philippians from prison, wrestling with big questions—he touches on the nature of eternal life and of heaven. In this message, we explore the theology of heaven and what it means to be a follower of Jesus here and now. We see, for example, that part of the work of the contemporary church is to deconstruct the Gospel Americana with its message that the goal is heaven rather than Jesus. This allows us to wrestle with our own big questions: How do we live well here while resting in the hope of eternal life? What does heaven here and now look like, and how would we lean into it?
