How God Supplies Every Need

In Paul’s final remarks, he recognized the church’s maturity due to their willingness to meet the needs of others. God often supplies our needs through the help of one another. God supplies every need by every believer giving every way they can. Philippians 4:14-23 14 Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. 15 And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. 16 Even in…

The Church That Shares Troubles

As Paul suffered in prison, he was able to endure partly due to the church sharing in his troubles. The people of God should be known for their willingness to walk alongside those who are in great need. Philippians 4:14 Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. Notes Sharing in affliction starts from a position of valuing others. Jesus has the power to change the circumstances but greatly values the relationship and therefore meets them in their grief. People…

I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Contents Me

This passage of Scripture is one of the most quoted and most misinterpreted sections of Scripture. The secret of the Christian life is learning how to live it out regardless of our circumstances. PHILIPPIANS 4:10-13 10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me.

When Anxiety Attacks

Making a stance for joy is waging a war against worry. Scripture clearly teaches what a disciple should do when anxiety attacks. The only power that anxiety has is the permission that you give it. Philippians 4:4-9 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests…

When God’s People Don’t Get Along

In any family, conflict is unavoidable, but, in the family of God, it must be dealt with, or else the church will suffer. Paul singles out two disagreeing church members and instructs us all how to reconcile when conflict comes. Personal conflict must be addressed, or else the entire church will suffer. Philippians 4:1-3 4:1 Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. 2 I entreat Euodia…
