Philippians - Part 1

As we begin our look at this letter. Let’s start with what we know for sure about Paul’s history with the group of people to whom he was writing. Acts 16: 11-40.

Paul’s previous experience with these people is important to understand his perspective on the issues he writes to them about.

How many people should you ask the following questions?

Do you see any of these in me... always, often, sometimes, rarely?

Love and affection for others.
A deep Joy even in hard situations
Peacefulness – the absence of frantic living
Patience when things aren’t going well
Kindness to everyone
Meekness / humility
View relationships as opportunities for self-pleasures
Fixate on false hopes
Envy and rivalry
Anger and a temper
Divisive and quick to join a division
Prone to numbing and the pretense of happiness (drinking, drugs, partying, etc)
