JOURNEY THROUGH PHILIPPIANS

  • Philippians is my favorite book in the whole Bible. It is the only book I have memorized. Believe it or not, I think I can still recite it.
  • Paul doesn't tell us that we can have joy or how to have joy. He is simply joyful, and we learn from his joy.
  • Paul often prayed for his Christian friends.
  • God will finish what He starts in us.
  • His primary prayer for them: that their love would flourish.
  • Everywhere I go, no matter the circumstances, is a pulpit.
  • As long as I'm alive, God has work for me to do.
  • Always live in such a way that you are a credit to God's message.
  • I should be more concerned with helping others get ahead versus me getting ahead.
  • Christians should always be a breath of fresh air in our sin-polluted world.
  • Another classic paraphrase from Eugene Peterson in The Message Bible. In 3:8, Paul considered all his religious credentials as "dog dung."
  • We must keep our eyes on the goal of becoming all that God has for us.
  • Everyday, all day, I should celebrate God.
  • Prayer displaces worry.
  • No matter what my circumstances are, I can make it through Christ.
