Teaching Notes:

Last week we started mining for gold in Philippians -

we began the smorgasboard of filling-up on what Paul knew about a relationship with Jesus Christ -

Learned 4 extraordinary lessons -

1 – Know who you are – identify yourself.

2 – God has given to you grace and peace.

3 – Know to whom you are assigned and pray for them with joy at all times!

4 – God finishes what He starts.

Continue our journey into the heart and spirit of Paul while he was in a Roman prison

Examine exactly what he had to say to the church at Philippi

Verses 7-11 - Paul was in prison and although his ability to travel and preach were on hold -

Have you ever known that you should pray for someone but just don't know what kind of prayer to pray?

The Lord brings someone to your heart -

pray for your adult children -

Discern what is best - revealing the character and nature of Christ -

Don't get involved in peripheral pursuits -

only one thing matters – to know Christ and to live for Him

3 – That they would be filled with the fruit of righteousness

the righteousness of God has been planted in you -

and it should cause practical acts of righteousness to

flow out of you -

4 – that their life would glorify and praise the Lord!

If nothing else – your life should bring glory to His Name!

When caught in a relationship trap -

How do I bring glory to Christ?

When dealing with sickness or illness?

How do I bring glory to Christ?

When in the middle of depression or despair?

How do I bring glory to Christ?

That is why you are here - to bring glory and praise to the Lord -

Paul was so aware of this even while he was in prison -

even when his life ...
