Philippians 4:4-7 The Faith of Gratitude (Bowen)

Paul writes, "do not be anxious, but make your needs known... with thanksgiving." So does gratitude save us, grant us inner peace and stability, joy and sense of purpose because it is one human emotion in which we are clearly called out of ourselves, caught up with God and life. Gratitude does it. But how to get it.

Philippians 4:4-7 The Peace of Prayer (Bowen)

The Apostle Paul says, "In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God." This is not a bromide. Paul does not stop there. He offers as the antidote to anxiety, what? "In nothing be anxious... pray." The discipline of prayer, he insists, is the answer to worry, the way to clarity of mind and heart.

Philippians 4:1-9 Four Part Harmony (Molin)

Paul offers a four-step equation to face adversity. A four-part harmony, just like a guitar chord, where each step Paul proposes is dependent upon the other three steps. You can't just do one; you need all four. 1. Do not worry about anything. 2. Pray about everything. 3. Be thankful. 4. We can have peace.

Philippians 3:4-14 The Prize (Kegel)

What sets us apart from the busy people all around us is that we have a goal to our race. It is to receive a prize that will make whatever we suffer and lose so much refuse compared to the glory that is ours in Christ. We press on toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, to eternal life in his name. Amen.
