Philippians – Final study

Philippians 4:14-23

14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.

22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.

23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

 

This brings us to the end of studying the book of Philippians. I hope you’ve learned. Philippians has gained new meaning for me, and I hope to continue learning from it in the future.

Just a few thoughts yet, on this passage… about gifts. Would you rather be on the giving end or the receiving end of gifts? Why?

  1. I love verse 19, the promise that God will supply ALL our NEEDS. He doesn’t promise all our wants, but He does promise all our needs, out of the abundance of His riches!

    I love being on both the giving and receiving end of gifts. But, I will admit, it comes easier for me to give than to receive.😊
