Introduction: I have taught lessons in the past on community and mainly because as we do the Church thing we must be careful to do the Church things and NOT TO THE CLUB THING.
You know we can all create a club – I mean that’s pretty easy you find a lot of people just like you, they look like you, and they think they smell they talk like you.
But that is not what we are called to create is the Church. So with that in mind - Let’s move on to today’s lesson: and it is called - Counting the Cost of Community:
If you are going to build a church if you are really going to do it the way the Lord would have you do it – IT’s GOING TO COST YOU SOMETHING.

Philippians 2:1-11 – This will be form the New Living Translation

Paul was is here sitting the Church down a Philipi and challenging them to get back to basics

Starting at verse (1)

1Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love?  Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic?

(What is he saying there - He is saying this is a football)

2Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, AND WORKING TOGETHER WITH ONE HEART AND PURPOSE.

    3Don't be selfish; don't live to make a good impression on others. BE HUMBLE, THINKING OF OTHERS AS BETTER THAN YOURSELF.

4Don't think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing.
   
5Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had.

6Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God.
