Throughout Philippians, we can learn from Paul the true path to joy: knowing Christ, spreading His message of forgiveness, and loving others even when the going gets tough. We’ve put together this series to help us as a church continue to focus on Jesus and His resurrection on Easter, and through this to grow to love Christ, His church, and the world more fervently, even in these times of limited social contact. We will be posting a new devotional each morning Monday through Friday at 6:30 AM in written and audio form, which will include the respective daily passage in Philippians, some thoughts, and a short prayer, authored by various small group leaders and members of our church. We hope these devotionals will serve as encouragements for your own spiritual life, as well as springboards into discussions with other brothers and sisters. How are they doing during this time? What do they think about these topics? How can you encourage them? Be thinking about how we can still grow together as one body throughout this time, as this will give our church real life and power from God. God’s grace and peace to you as you go through this series.
We’ve now reached the end of this devotional series, but we shouldn’t forget what God has shown us. How has God changed you? How should our life look when this time of Corona restrictions slowly comes to an end? Tony Grigg draws some guidelines out of the entire letter to the Philippians.
Our mission to spread the gospel often feels really difficult to fulfill as individual Christians. Are we as followers of Christ meant to do this alone? Janis Arzet shows us that we can find hope in Philippians 4:21-23!
What is your attitude towards giving? Is it generous and free? Alexander Gasnik points us to the example of the Philippian church from Philippians 4:15-20.
Are you content in life? Why or why not? Samuel and Judith Garrard write about their experience and thoughts from Philippians 4:10-14.
Which things fill up our time, and which things do we try to use to fulfill our lives? Are they things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy? Finn Langenbach challenges us from Philippians 4:8-9 to take a look at our lives and reflect.
What holds you captive? And how do you get from there to a peace and safety, that only can come from God? Angie Grigg shares her own story and her thoughts about Philippians 4:4-7.
How can we live in unity despite different opinions? What does it mean to live as one body of Christ? Paul writes us how we should think about these topics in Philippians 4:2-3.
Can we as Christians call heaven our home? And how does this impact our lives? Tony Grigg searchs for answers in Philippians 3:17-4:1.
We are saved by the blood of Jesus. But we should also seek sanctification in our lives. How does this work together? Solveig Küspert seeks answers in Philppians 3: 14-16
