Preparing for Good Friday
CHOOSING THE CROSS
For the last week of Lent, in preparation for Good Friday, we will be engaging with material taken from Chapter 6 in “Desiring God’s Will” by David Benner. A portion of the chapter is to be read each day. You can simply pray out of what impacts you in the reading.
Jesus was brutally...

Philippians 4:19-20 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
We often separate “wants” from “needs.” This isn’t always helpful because we are people who are not often in touch with what we...

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
This verse isn’t a license to launch into anything and God will supernaturally give you strength to do it. Paul talks in the preceding verses about the Philippians meeting a need in his life. Apparently it was a long time coming…not that they didn’t care...

Philippians 4:11-12 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether...

Philippians 4: 10-12 10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.
To really see another person rarely just happens in passing. It is an intentional thing. To see Christ in that person requires the help of the Spirit. To treat that...

Philippians 4: 8-9 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...

Philippians 4:4-7 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...
Mar26ThuMarch 26, 2020Philippians 3:17-2017 Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach,...

Not that I have already obtained it (future complete resurrection) or have already reached the goal, but I press on to make it my own because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own, but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I...

Philippians 3: 7-11
But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found...
