The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 2 – Part 4
We are continuing in the epistle of Philippians. In this series “The Epistle Of Joy Part 2” – We see Churches are filled with people from different races, cultures, and backgrounds. We are to be an example to the world of the power of the new birth, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit. What the world cannot do, the supernatural power of God can.
A sad thing happens when the church starts to live like the world. Paul heard from prison that factions were developing in the Philippian church. Here He writes to remind them of the Holy Spirit who lives in them and the fruit which He produces.
Part 4 – In this study, we discuss the relationship between verse 12 and verse 13 in chapter 2 of Philippians. In these passages we see God, not only gives the will to please Him but also the ability, So, verse 12 delineates human responsibility and verse 13 divine responsibility. It is never “either/or.” The scriptural approach is not “let go and let God,” but “get in there with God.” You will be blessed by this message.
