Like Stars in the Universe: A Study in Philippians

Eddie White

Philippians 4:14-23

Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

Our giving is…

A gift from God (13-14)
A gift of generosity (16-18)
A gift of sacrifice (18)
A gift of reciprocity (17)
A gift of trust (19)
A gift to God’s glory (20)

A tale of two seas:

There are two famous seas in Israel: The Sea of Galilee and The Dead Sea. The Sea of Galilee is teaming with life; The Dead Sea is toxic. How can two seas fed by the same source, the Jordan, be so different? The difference is the Sea of Galilee receives water from the Jordan but also feeds the Jordan by allowing the water to pass through it. The Dead Sea does not allow water to escape. It keeps it all. The same is with our lives. We must allow love to pass through us.

Give to Live!
