Today we’ll discover, Philippians 4: 1-9 How Not to Be a Jerk, Biblically! Dear family in Christ, I am overjoyed to see each one of you here today. Your presence is a testament to the love and fellowship that bind us together as a body of believers. We’re not just friends; we are family, connected by the love of Jesus Christ. Every smile, every hand raised in worship, and every voice lifted in prayer is a celebration of the unity we share in Him. We gather today not as individuals, but as parts of one body, ready to grow, learn, and walk closer with our Lord.

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before You with hearts filled with gratitude and spirits eager to receive Your word. We humbly ask that Your presence fills this place, touching each one of us, revitalizing our souls, and drawing us closer to You. As we delve into Your scripture, may our understanding deepen, our love for You intensify, and our commitment to follow Jesus be strengthened. Let every word spoken and every testimony shared be for Your glory, O Lord. Amen.

Introduction to Scripture: Philippians 4: 1-9

Paul, while in chains, pens this heartwarming and encouraging letter to the Philippians, a group of believers he holds dear. He speaks to them as beloved partners in the Gospel, urging them to stand firm in their faith. Despite his own hardships, Paul’s words are infused with joy and peace. He encourages the Philippians to replace anxiety with prayer and thanksgiving, assuring them of the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.

SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4: 1-9

1 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!

Rejoice in the Lord

2 I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Anxiety and Peace

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 God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Think on These Things

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 things. 9 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.
