Knowing God - Philippians 4:12

(fp)

... I have learned the secret ...
Philippians 4:12
 
Would you like to know the secret of life? That's what Paul is talking about today.
 
If we read a little more of this verse, he gives us a little more context for contentment, joy, and the secret of life. He says, "I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty ... of being well fed and going hungry."
 
Circumstances! Good and bad. For richer or poorer. In sickness and in health. Apparently the secret Paul learned transcends circumstances. So what is it?
 
It's a relationship with author of life!
 
Paul says -- next verse -- "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
 
That's why Jesus kept telling us, "blessed are the poor ... the meek ... the merciful ... and the ones who persevere." Why? Because theirs is kingdom, hope, love, and joy.
 
In Christ's Love,
one whoooo
can doooo
all throoo
Christ whoooo
strengthens this yahoooo
