Process of Becoming

Process of Becoming

Passage: Philippians 2:1-11

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Family Values

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: accountability, christlikeness, discipleship, spiritual growth

It has almost become commonplace today to speak of the Christian life as a journey. Perhaps the intended thought is a temporal journey, as we manage to move through life, towards death, and into eternity. Perhaps its thought to be a spatial journey as this world eventually gives way to the “new heavens and new earth” of Revelation. And while both of these ideas have merit, the inner journey of the individual, within a faith community, toward Christlikeness, is a key value of UBC. We acknowledge that we all are called to be more like Christ, we all have a long ways to go, but we all have the potential to make progress in that direction. Hopefully, this “Process of Becoming” is a journey that every UBC member is on, and one in which we help each other along the way through example, accountability, challenge, and love. (Phil 2:1-11; 1 Pet 1:13—2:3; Gal 5:13-26; 2 Pet 1:5-9)
