THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE PHILIPPIANS

CHAPTER 4


BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE

BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE QUOTES WITH BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE


          Welcome back! Great to have you here again at Daily Bread and this time weíll be finishing up our study of Paulís letter to the Philippians. Paul starts the conclusion of his letter by telling the Philippians how close they are to his heart.

          Therefore, my friends dearly beloved and longed for (missed), my joy and my crown, stand firm in the Lord. I ask that Eudoias and Syntche be of the same mind in the Lord.

          From that last sentence, we can assume that these two people had a disagreement that was serious enough for Paul to find out about it all the way in Rome. It only takes two people in a church, being at odds with one another or with others, to interfere with the progress of the whole congregation and their service to the Lord. Of course there will always be small disagreements about things, but if they get in the way of the common goal, thatís a different story. Be aware of whether youíre ever hindering the church from moving forward because of something that youíre not like-minded about and fix it fast. Thatís a good thing to remember in any situation.

          And I ask you also, true helper, help those women who worked with me in the Gospel, with Clement also, and other fellow workers of mine whose names are in the Book of Life.

          Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice.

          Let your moderation (gentleness) be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

          Now, thereís a challenge for us. Let our gentleness be known to all? But what about our toughness? What about our independence? What about our physical and emotional strength? These things are sometimes necessities, but donít let them overshadow your meekness. Think of Jesus. He wasnít demanding, abrasive, adamant, insistent, loud or controlling in any way. He was meek. Show your Jesus side.

          Be anxious for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God, and the peace of God, which is beyond understanding, will preserve your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE LESSON WITH BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE EXPLANATION

          Do you ever pray with thanksgiving? Thank means do you thank God in advance for the things you ask Him for? When you do this, youíre showing the strength of your faith and your lack of doubt (James 1:5-7). (Make sure) youíre not being presumptuous by doing this, youíre showing praise. Hereís an example:

Dear Father,
In the name of Christ Jesus,
At one with the Holy Spirit,
If it be according to your will,
Make your request here
I believe that with you, all things are possible.
Thank you for answering my prayer.
Glory and praise to you, my Almighty Father.
I love you.
Amen.

          Finally, my friends, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest (noble), whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report (with good reputation), if there be any praise (honor) think (meditate) on these things. Do the things that you have learned, received, heard, and seen in me, and the God of peace shall be with you.

          I rejoiced in the Lord that lately your care of me has flourished again. I know you were anxious to help me, but had no opportunity. (When Paul was in Corinth, the Philippians helped Paul by providing some things that he needed. If Paul didnít have to work for his necessities, it gave him more time to dedicate to spreading the Gospel, 2 Corinthians 11:9).

          Iím not talking about want, because Iíve learned that no matter what I have, to be content (1 Timothy 6:6 Godliness with content is great gain). I know how to be made low (I know how to humble myself), and I know how to be prosperous. Everywhere and in all things I am instructed to be both full and hungry, to be prosperous and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

          This reminds me of something. How many times has there been something you wanted (not needed, just wanted) so badly, you just HAD to have it. Then once you got it, two weeks later it meant nothing to you. Imagine how much of the time and money you spent on those things could have been used to better serve God. And we do it repeatedly! Now letís get back to Paulís letter.

BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE INFORMATION WITH BEING CONTENT BIBLE VERSE MEANING

          Nevertheless, you have done well that you helped in my troubles. Now you Philippians also know that in the beginning of the Gospel, when I left Macedonia, no other church worked with me concerning giving and receiving, but only you. Even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent things now and again for my needs. Iím not seeking a gift, but I desire fruit that may be added to your account (Treasures in Heaven). I have all I need and am full. Epaphroditus gave me the things that you sent, an odor of sweet smell (probably incense), a good gift, well pleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

          This is an interesting thing that Paul is saying. Pay close attention here because this may help you to understand something that you may have experienced. Paul just said (in so many words), Youíve given me a gift and it made God happy. Iím not going to return the favor, but GOD will supply all your needs according to His riches. Have you ever received a gift from someone and felt like it was so thoughtful or so expensive or so much that you couldnít possibly accept it or ever give them anything in return that would compare? You get this feeling in the pit of your stomach that youíll be obligated forever to that person. Youíre almost ashamed.

         Maybe that wasnít their intent, and they donít expect anything in return, they were just being generous out of the kindness of their heart. Okay now, put that thought away and ask yourself, has there ever been a time when you helped someone (not the same person we were just talking about a second ago), and you knew that the depth of their gratitude could never be expressed or paid back to you? Well, you really didnít expect them to pay you back, you did it out of genuine love in your heart. Alright, now, from Godís perspective, do you think things are even? You may not ever in a million years be able to pay someone back for something theyíve done for you or given you, just as there are those who cannot pay you back, but it all balances out because somewhere down the line, or in the past, in the eyes of the Lord, you will do something, or have done something of equal value. It may not be money for money, or time for time or gift for gift, but God makes sure that we all get what we need, and we also get the opportunities, not always to pay it back to the same person who gave to us, but to pay it forward to another of His children in need.

          So, to repeat the wisdom that Paul wrote to the Philippians, My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

          Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

          Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren that are with me greet you. All the saints greet you, especially those from Cśsarís household (remember that Paul is writing from prison in Rome). The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

          Thanks for studying along and congratulations on completing another book of the New Testament. Join us again next time as we begin our study of The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians, right here at Daily Bread. God Bless.
