The Epistle Of Joy Chapter 4 – Part 9
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 9 – To be content in Christ takes an act of faith on our part. We live in a world system that is ruled by the prince of the power of the air and his goal is to rule the world with fear. As believers we have been saved by grace through faith, this was not just a one-time event that covers our eternity but also a daily provision of grace to walk by faith and not by sight. This message will encourage you to “not lose heart” in the trials of life. Keep your faith and trust in God He is faithful, and His love is proven.
