Letters from Prison - Philippians 1:9-11
In some ways the prayer in Philippians 1:9-11 covers the whole range of what God wants to do in us and through us. 1. It starts with abounding love 2. That manifests itself in knowledge and discernment 3. Resulting in the ability to make wise choices under pressure 4. And the visible fruit of a righteous life 5. That comes from a living relationship with Jesus Christ 6. So that God alone gets the glory.
There are several prayer requests listed here for what I see as a Supernatural Life. Implied in this entire prayer is Paul’s hope that they would make great decisions. Our life is the sum of all our decisions. Essentially, this is a prayer that every decision they make would be motivated by love. your love may abound more and more
Message talking points:
All of this - One Supernatural Life!
In the supernatural life, our love should be flowing, growing (in insights), knowing (in decisions), showing (in authenticity), and sowing (for fruitfulness).
Is your love abounding? Are you growing? Has your discernment deepened? Can you be real and authentic? Is your life producing fruit? Is God lifted up through you?
This is my prayer for you!
