How then shall we live?

Celebrating missions trip our friends took from Bangalore to Bihar!

Philippians 1:1-7 NIV

Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,

To all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons[a]:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with meGod can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

  1. From these verses, what do we learn about God?
  2. What do we learn about people?
  3. How can we do what this passage says?
  4. Who can we share this with?

Praying for all of you today in Chicago – keeping in touch with friends here and in India. Checking up on older people.

Listening to good worship music! That’s what I’m up to – going on prayer walks!

Planning to do some video classes soon and even meeting for home group online as a group conference call as well as prayer groups.

Supporting others who are a positive influence on social media!
