Philippians 4:

  1. May we show fervent love towards the saints and fellow members of the body of Christ so that we view them as our joy and crown. 1-3
    1. We are to see each other as yoked in truth together and those that labor in the gospel. 3
    2. We should see one another as fellowlabourers not only in this world but as those that will be together in heaven forever. 3
  2. We are to let our mildness of forbearance prevail over reaction at difficulties so that it is made known to all men in view of the fact that we know the LORD is near us. Thus we should never be uptight or anxious about anything but rather bring everything to God with thanksgiving and prayer. 4-8
    1. And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joyoffaith; [Phlm 1:22];
    2. In this way we allow the peace of God even when circumstances seem to be totally against our understanding of the way things should be in our alignment of life with God. This keeps our heart abiding in Christ Jesus. 7
    3. We should also dwell with our heart on all things that are pure, honest, and good and seek to follow and live like the leadership that is an inspiration and example in all these things. 8-9
  3. We must learn in whatever our circumstances whether of great need or abundance to be content. 10-11
    1. This requires the exercise of faith in Christ that he can strengthen us to be content first and also to provide our needs because we are always giving as unto God to others. 13
