Philippians - Working Out What God Works In Your Heart

#12 - COUNTING EVERYTHING LOSS - THE PROCESS OF KNOWING CHRIST DEEPLY

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Philippians 3:1 - 11
#12 In The Series - WORKING OUT WHAT GOD WORKS IN YOUR HEART - Studies in the Book of Philippians

There is a striking feature in the first two verses of this profound text. There is nothing in verses 2 through 11 that would make you think Paul’s topic was in any way related to joy.  Yet he starts his whole string of thoughts by letting us know it is precisely joy that he’s thinking and writing about - “Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord.”


Because this path to joy doesn’t look immediately inviting or exciting Paul feels he needs to remind me to stay on the path where joy will be found. Because he knows my tendency to look for joy in all the wrong places he is going to keep me “safe” by making sure I don’t side-step the right path.
