The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 4 – Part 1

 

We are continuing in the epistle of Philippians.  In this series “The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 4” –

 

As we grow in the Lord and become familiar with the does and don’ts of the Christian life, it is easy to get complacent.  We reason, “I know what the Scripture says, so why continue to study it?”  We go through the outward motions of church attendance and Christian service, often becoming overly busy with religious activities.  We think we have arrived.

 

Paul has experienced tremendous suffering caused both by his personal choices and persecution for the gospel’s sale. Despite all he has suffered he has, learned to experience a deeply abiding joy and peace, while keeping his heart and mind through Christ Jesus.  

 

Part 1 – As we stand fast in the Lord, we are able to keep focused on fulfilling the work of the Kingdom of God.  Focus on the Lord keeps us in one mind and full of His affections for one another and the World around us.  Our daily walk with the Lord is to be filled with rejoicing on a continuous basis. As we apply these truths we place a firm foundation below us to withstand the storms of this life.
