Letters From Prison | This Means More Than You Know | November 24, 2019

 

Philippians 4:10-23

 

At Last! | Philippians 4:10-14
Again, Paul rejoices!
At last? They have renewed their concern?
“Not because I am in need…”
The REAL context of “I can do all things…”
All thingsmay not be what you think
Contentment is not found in our circumstances
Contentment takes strength
Strength comes from Jesus
Again, “it was good of you to share in my troubles”

 

This Means More Than You Know | Philippians 4:15-20
I will never forget your sacrifice early on
Your focus was on the Gospel then…
Where has their focus been recently?
It seems their focus is coming back
This isn’t manipulation, but for their credit
Supplying Paul for the advancement of the Gospel is an offering pleasing to God
My God” will meet all your needs
To our God” be glory for ever and ever!

 

We Are Reaching the World | Philippians 4:21-23
Greet the saintsin Christ Jesus
All the saintssend you greetings
Especially those in Caesar’s household
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit

Letters From Prison The Already & The Not Yet | November 10, 2019 | Philippians 3:12 – 4:1

Letters From Prison | The Already & The Not Yet | November 10, 2019

Philippians 3:12 – 4:1

Lessons We Can Learn From Paul | Philippians 3:12-14
He hasn’t arrived yet. Have you?
He’s determined to “press on”. Are you?
He knows “for what Jesus took hold of him.” Do you?
He’s just like us. He calls us “brothers”.
He doesn’t let the past hold him back. Do you?
This is our calling from God.

 

Major on the Majors | Philippians 3:15-16
Spiritual maturity is demonstrated in agreement with Paul’s view on these things.
Not in agreement? Trust God to help.
We should have unity around what He’s already given us

 

You’re Not Alone in This | Philippians 3:17-19
There are some among you who are following my example. Pay attention to them!
Our mission is too critical! This dying world is breaking Paul’s heart.  Does it break yours?

 

This Is Not Our Home | Philippians 3:20-4:1
Where should our focus be? Luke 9:62
Our Savior is returning and He will…
     bring all things under His control…
     make us more like Him!
Paul’s love is stated 5X before his command…
     This is how you should stand firm!
Then he states it once more.
We should, likewise, take his advice

Joyful… AND Cautious | Philippians 3:1
Again, Paul tells them to rejoice!
Even while there is danger around them 

Q:         Do we need to be reminded of the same?

 

Jews Become Gentiles… And the Gentiles? | Philippians 3:2-6
Beware of DOG
     They are evil mutilators of the flesh!
There is a spiritual reversal
We are the circumcision
We worship by the Spirit of God John 4:23
We take no confidence in ourselves
But… Paul could if he wanted to

Q: Do we take too much confidence in ourselves?

 

A Lesson in Systematic Theology? | Philippians 3:7-11
Not your typical profit / loss sheet
They are worse than rubbish Isaiah 64:6 

Q: Are we relying on these types of things?

Justification—righteousness by faith!
Sanctification—becoming like Him | Philippians 1:29
Glorification—to be raised with Him | Romans 8:17
