Losing To Gain #3

Philippians - Losing To Gain - June 2008

We study the Word so that we can be changed -- transformed into the image of Christ. Paul wants the Philippians to know that the Hand of God's Providence was working toward the benefit of the Gospel and them (Phi 1:12-13, Phi 1:24-25). Philippians were using their material blessings for others (Phi 4:10-13, Phi 4:19). "I have learned" (Phi 4:11). Paul was a disciple (2Ti 2:15); it takes a disciple to make a disciple (Joh 13:7, Jam 1:21). Christ is both the master of the school and its topic. "I know how" developed through practice. "Wisdom is justified [verified] in her children" (Mat 11:19, Luk 7:35). "I can do". We have reasons to endure the little inconveniences to prepare for the big ones (Joh 14:17-18, Heb 13:5-6).
