“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.”            Psalm 139:9

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

Paul is sort of wrapping things up in his wisdom letter to the church in Philippi. Here’s my summary of his summary!

“Finally, my dear friends, whatever is… think on these things.”       Philippians 4: 8,9

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

I REALLY like this section of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. It’s full of very insightful guidelines for my journey with Jesus. The first it to rejoice—always— let me say that again in case you didn’t get it—REJOICE!! And then he lists several ideas, I’m not sure if they are the result of always rejoicing or just more good advice which includes rejoicing. Either way, they’re good!

“Work out your own salvation…”      Philippians 2:12

“… so that no one can boast.”            Ephesians 2:8, 9

As I continued from yesterday I only got two chapters farther along and I found additional help in my quest against boasting—except in Jesus!

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”    Galatians 6:14

The fruit of the Spirit is… and against such there is no law.”            Galatians 5: 22, 23

Here’s my new way of looking at the “fruits of the Spirit!” Start from the end—

“There is no law against:

Being loving
Being joyful
Offering peace
Being patient
Being kind
Being good
Being faithful
Being gentle
Having self-control”

“I have been crucified with Christ…”            Galatians 2:20

My old life-- “has been crucified with Christ”

The result—“I no longer live”

The alternative to the old life—“Christ lives in me”

And now—“I live by faith in the Son of God”

Why— because He “loved me and gave Himself for me”
