Philippians

The Last, Great Lesson on Joy

The theme of Philippians is "joy." That being the case, we shouldn't be surprised that Paul's last words of this book (Phil. 4:14-19) are about joy too. But the last, great lesson on joy in Philippians is a lesson about "the joy of giving." We normally don't associate "giving" with "joy" but Paul did. In this lesson we notice some tangible ways to better appreciate how there really is joy in giving as Paul uses the gift of the Philippians as a lesson for us today.

Seeing Philippians 4:13 Like Paul

One of the most memorable verses in the Bible is often not clearly understood. Phil. 4:13 is not the motivation to win the game or run a race. It can be, but it's much, much more. It's really about persevering through trials and struggles to be able to do what God has asked you to do. And when you fail at that, it is the calm reassurance Jesus will cover for you.
