Scripture Reading Philippians 4:4-19
- Rejoice in the
Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
- Let your
gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
- Do not be anxious
about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with
thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
- And the peace of
God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and
your minds in Christ Jesus.
- Finally, brothers,
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.
- 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.
- I rejoice greatly
in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed,
you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.
- I am not saying
this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever
- 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 living in plenty or in want.
- I can do everything
through him who gives me strength.
- Yet it was good of
you to share in my troubles.
- Moreover, as you
Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the
gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church
shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;
- For even when I was
in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need.
- Not that I am
looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your
- I have received
full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have
received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant
offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
- And my God will
meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

We all were descendent of Adam，so we have anxieties. A bitter
faced old lady who lives in the city of Peitow, Taiwan, always worried about her 1st son’s business who is selling umbrella, with
no rain in horizon. She is also
worried about 2nd son who is selling clothes and the merchandize
might be eaten by insects! So we
called her “coolant Paul苦臉婆meant: bitter faced lady”，when I told her that more people using
umbrella as a shield to sunshine and clothes to make additional costume dresses’
then she became a “Shoulane Paul笑臉婆meant: always show smiling face.。
Paul said： “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength。(Philippians 4:13) Paul is extremely joyful he said, “We also
rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance character;
having hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured
out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
- Prayer strengthen us, God took away your anxious when you put in
everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, it changed your
feeling and thought, let you pray, giving you peace instead of
worry, the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will
guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
- Trust GOD strengthen us, not depending your
wisdom, circumstances, or money power but God strengthen you, that
enough fulfill your goal. You will have worry if you want to be a head
person. Everything relies on Him.
Philippians 4:19, “my God
will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus”.
- Sharing strengthen us, God using us from sharing financial help along with
something in order for Changing our life to glorify Him。 Sharing brings Changed (Acts 20:35) - 'It is
more blessed to give than to receive.” Sharing to Glorify God & Experiences
the abundant of God。All we have are not belonging
to us; God is giving us to utilize it in such away to be helpful to
- POINT: Paul can live out his life as
Jesus so he can do everything through Christ who gives Paul strength.
- Discussion: 1). Can you find out what
he said about, “I can do everything”. 2). what is the benefit of put
everything in prayer? Please share your emperies about the power of
about your received or helping others that influences your life!
保羅說： “我因靠著那加給我力量的、凡事都能作。(腓立比書4:13) 保羅是有無可救藥的喜樂。他說，〝雖是憂愁、卻是常常快樂，雖是貧窮、卻是叫許多人富足；就是在患難中，也要歡歡喜喜〞(羅馬書5:3)
