THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE PHILIPPIANS

CHAPTER 3

BIBLE VERSES

          Happy youíre here once again to share more Daily Bread. Weíre in the middle of our study of Paulís epistle to the Philippians, and here we get a bit of history concerning Paul, kind of a testimony of his life and how now Jesus is his hero. Paul urges the Philippians to follow Jesus as he did, so they can be a people united for the same cause and work together in service to God.

          As you know, Paul is a very colorful writer, and the phrases he uses certainly add dimension for those receiving his messages, so lets take a look at it together and enjoy his teaching as he illustrates how Christ was his model of humility and service and see if we can put these principles into practice in our own lives.

          Paul writes, Finally my friends, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you (to repeat himself), to me in fact is not troublesome, but it is to protect you. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. (Circumcision had by now lost it's spiritual significance and was now considered a senseless mutilation.)

          Letís look at these things one at a time.

  • Beware of dogs. Paul isnít referring to manís best friend here. Heís talking about the other kind of dogs. They bite and devour things, they go astray, they bark, they growl, they howl. Have you ever seen a dogfight? Theyíre relentless and they destroy each other. Beware of people who are like dogs seeking fights.

  • Beware of evil workers. This is pretty much self explanatory. It is also mentioned in Psalms 119:115.

  • Beware of the concision (Romans 2:28-29). For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

          Paul goes on, For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

GOAL SETTING BIBLE VERSES LESSON WITH GOAL SETTING BIBLE VERSES EXPLANATION

         Though I might also have confidence in the flesh (though I may think that my life [on earth] means something). If any other man thinks that he has reason to trust in his life, I have more reason.

         I was circumcised the eighth day, of the stock (a descendant) of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews, concerning the law, a Pharisee (following the law to the letter), concerning zeal (enthusiasm), persecuting the Church (thinking that he was doing a God service, see Acts 22:3,4); in reference to the righteousness which is in the law (being considered righteous for following the law), blameless.

        But those things that were gain (profitable) to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yes, doubtless, and I now count all things loss for the Excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the Faith of Christ, the righteousness which is from God by Faith, that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship (sharing) of His sufferings, being made conformable (similar, submissive, following in unbroken sequence) to His death, if by any means I might attain (obtain, achieve) unto the resurrection of the dead, not as though I had already achieved, or were already perfect (complete), but I pursue after, if that I may apprehend (understand) for which also I am apprehended (understood) of Christ Jesus.

          THAT is a long sentence ... So just to make sure that we all didnít get confused before the end of it, weíre gonna break it down. Paul starts out saying, I used to be against Christ, but now I count everything as loss (nothing has any value) except for the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. Letís read a little passage from the Book of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

GOAL SETTING BIBLE VERSES INFORMATION WITH GOAL SETTING BIBLE VERSES MEANING

          Next Paul writes very candidly, everything else is refuse, so that I may win the favor of Christ. Now, you get the idea, that Paul doesnít want to be known for the things that he did before he was saved (as do none of us). He continues, I want to be found by Christ NOT that I have my own righteousness for following the law, but that I am righteous through the Faith of Christ, and have the righteousness that comes from God. I count everything as loss, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection. I count all things as loss to share in His suffering, being made one with Him, even sharing in His death. I count all things as loss, so that if there is any chance, I may have eternal life. I donít live as though I have already earned it, or am already perfect, but I strive for this, in hopes of understanding the way that I am understood by Christ Jesus.

          Continuing now, Paul writes, Brethren, I donít claim to have understood, but one thing I do understand, forgetting those things in the past, and reaching toward the future, I press (reach) for the goal, for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us, therefore, as many as are mature, be thus minded (in agreement) and if in any thing you be otherwise minded (if you have different goals) God will reveal this to you.

          Nevertheless, the things that weíve already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing (if youíre successful at something, donít change your procedure). Brethren, be followers together of me, and remember them which walk (the walk of Faith) so you have us for an example. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you in sadness that they are the enemies of the Cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly [greed], and their glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation (life, citizenship) is in Heaven, where we also look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile (worthless) body, that it may be fashioned like His glorious body (1 Corinthians 15:52-54), according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.

          We sure have some great things to look forward to, being Christians. You may want to write your own testimony sometime. Write down where you came from (what your goals were, how you lived, what your morals were) and how youíve changed since you invited Jesus into your life. How do you want Jesus to see you? What are your goals?

          Join us again next time, as we find out what closing words Paul has to share with the Philippians, right here at Daily Bread.
