What Everyone is Looking For

|||What Everyone is Looking For

What would you pay if “peace of mind” was sold in a bottle? Many people would spend everything they own for it. But what if you didn’t have to? What if you could find “peace of mind” for free? “Peace of mind” is not to be found in a bottle, but it is to be found in the Bible! In the book of Philippians, the apostle Paul take us on a journey to discover the things that everyone is searching for that will allow them to enjoy the blessings of this book.

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.

How to Make a Difference in Our World

Christianity is a religion that is both private and public. The public side of Christianity is the nature of Paul's words in Phil. 4:5-12. The emphasis seems to center on how our handling of people and situations have a tremendous impact on those who will witness our faith during times of difficulties and trials. This lesson is a reminder that you really can make a difference in our world!
