The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 4 – Part 3


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 3 – We are not called to live in fear and anxiety.  In this study we look in depth into Philippians 4:6. The mirror Bible translates it this way, “Let no anxiety about anything distract you!  Rather translate moments into prayerful worship and soak your requests in gratitude before God!”  God knew about our situations and problems before the foundation of the world, and He prepared answers for our petitions which we discover through fellowship and receive by faith when they are revealed.
