Topic: Sermons Scripture: Philippians 4:4

Philippians 4:4 rejoice in the Lord always ; again I will say, rejoice!!

 

A Christian Should Be An Alleluia From Head to Foot” St. Augustine

 

joy: is the distinctive mark of a christian

 

The PATH to joy in crisis is obedience

 

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Philippians 4:5

 

gentleness = the refusal to retaliate

 

1 Peter 2:23

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

 

 

This gentleness does not come natural … it is a gift of the spirit !!

 

Galatians 5:22

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22

 

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Philippians 4:5

 

WORRY:

STRESS:

FEAR:

DARKNESS:

 

petition = sitting with God and telling him in detail … what you need

 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Philippians 4:6

 

“Weather we like it or not, asking is the rule of our kingdom” - Charles Spurgeon

Thanksgiving

Remember his love … Remember what he has done for you… remember what he has promised you in the future

 

 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Romans 1:21

 

Thanksgiving  is acknowledging that all we have is a gift from God

 

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

 

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8

 

Lets make time this week to read our bible

 

And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:9
