Friday, 24 February 2017

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

Once again, as in verse 3:1, Paul uses the word “finally.” Unlike there though, he is truly concluding his epistle; giving the final closing thoughts to his beloved church in Philippi.… Read the rest

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Paul’s words now are written as a prescription containing the medicine for the anxious soul of the previous verse. With the knowledge of what Christ has done, and of what He promises for us because of what He has done, instead of being anxious we have the ability to receive “the peace of God.” It is true that we cannot see the future as it unfolds before us, but we can see the ultimate end which is promised to us.… Read the rest

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Philippians 4:6

This is one of the more difficult exhortations Paul passes on to us. We are tied to this world and we are continuously moving forward in the stream of time, not knowing what lies even one second ahead.… Read the rest

Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Philippians 4:5

The word Paul uses for “gentleness” is an adjective which gives the idea of being fair and reasonable. We should relax our overly strict standards in order to keep a spirit of fellowship between one another.… Read the rest

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4

Paul now returns to the words of verse 3:1 –

“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.”

The theme of joy which flows from Paul’s pen is an exhortation for all to not merely rejoice, but to “Rejoice in the Lord.” He has just given stern warnings concerning the “mutilators of the flesh,” and living in the flesh for this world as opposed to living in the Spirit in anticipation of the next.… Read the rest
