Due to your gracious remarks, I do feel the freedom to post more often. Please keep in mind, we all need challenging in our thinking. The freedom that we have in Jesus is that we don’t have to agree on everything but as I had said another time, as Euodia and Syntyche were to agree or have the same mind, it is the truths that focus on Jesus that we must be of one mind on. Some things that strike you or you see a new way, may not only be something we didn’t see but something we disagree on. It’s great to be challenged so don’t hesitate to post an opinion, question, remark etc.It’s dull if we all think the same way. Why post because we already think that way? Rather, it’s great to have His world shed new light because one of you mentioned something that I would have never thought of or maybe do not see that way.
The chapter will be coming to a close soon. What’s next? I mentioned what input I recall. What do you all thin? It really matters. Also, be open minded to memorizing a passage that would not have been at the top of your list because often the ones that we least expected, the Lord grabs us in a way we never would have expected.
Even those of you who sent me where you are from months ago, could you do so again so we all know where we are from? I’m putting together a master pin map that will have where we all live. If I could hear from everyone, I will finish it and send it to you all. I find it a great tool for prayer for each other. Do pray that the Holy Spirit will enlighten our eyes to see what He has for each one of us. We have 29 of us together. May Jesus keep us caring and praying for one another.
I so appreciated verse 17 that emphasizes not the gift but the fruit that the gift bears to the giver!
The verses this week don’t vary much with each translation. They are good verses to have if we need to catch up at all as they are pretty straightforward:
Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (NIV)
Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:20 To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
Philippians 4:20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. (NKJV)
These verses are my prayer for you!
