Philippians - Working Out What God Works In Your Heart

#18 - WHAT THE POWER OF GOD IS FOR AND WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE TO THOSE AROUND US

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Philippians 4:10 - 13
#18 In The Series -" WORKING OUT WHAT GOD WORKS IN YOUR HEART "

Studies in the Book of Philippians

The only person Paul talks about in these four verses is himself. The words "I" and "me" are peppered throughout each sentence. The reason for this is found when we look back to verse 9 - "What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me - practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." 


Paul has been urging these Christians at Philippi, in whatever difficulties they may be facing, to "rejoice in the Lord" (4:4). We know they have been experiencing deep trial of some kind from these words: "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake, [30] engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have" (1:29-30). Yet Paul has been urging that in the middle of their persecution and trial they must "Rejoice in the Lord always" (4:4). They are not to be "anxious about anything" (4:6), but are to have their hearts "guarded by the peace of God" (4:7). The peace of God will guard their hearts from being overwhelmed by discouragement in trial and idolatry in abundance.
