One of the reasons Paul wrote the letter of Philippians was to thank them for a gift they had sent him while he was in prison. through the rest of the book gives no instruction, nor any commands; however we learn so much from the care with which Paul does the simplest things. Even how one says ‘thank you’ is dangerous if it is done the wrong way. How? Listen as Pastor Matt examines to show how Paul uses extreme care to make sure that how he says ‘thanks’ doesn’t contradict the truths he has presented so far in his letter.We are always teaching in the class room of life. Let us take care that our lives match our message!
10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity.
10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
