Philippians 4 - NIV

Closing Appeal for Steadfastness and Unity

1 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!

2 I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.

3 Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Final Exhortations

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

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

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

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

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Thanks for Their Gifts

Shared by: Derrick Tuper on Nov, 2016
Summary: Thanksgiving; the day we set aside to give thanks for all we have. Although I'm glad we have a national holiday dedicated to being thankful, God's intention is that we would be in a continual mindset of giving thanks. We need to be living thankfully.

The Power of Positive Thinking
Shared by: Derrick Tuper on Sep, 2016
Summary: Although there are many self-help publications with this title, if an author doesn’t cite God as the source of all positive thought and ability it’s not something I’ll read. The power doesn't come from channeling some unknown energy it comes from God.

Childlike Prayer
Shared by: Jeff Strite on Feb, 2016
Summary: A lot of people think if they just had the right "formula" for praying that God would hear them. But that's not true. God's not impressed with your form, He's impressed with your childlike faith in prayer. So, how can I have that kind of faith in prayer?
