‘Living as Heaven’s Citizens (part 2)’ (Rev Keith Bell)

Given that followers of Jesus have become citizens of heaven, Philippians 4:5 reminds the church to live God’s way. Reasonableness is so important for maintaining community and Christians should seek to what is best for everyone, especially in light of the fact that Jesus will surely return as judge.

‘Rejoice in the Lord’ (Philippians 4:4)

There are many times in life when bad news strikes, circumstances change or life takes a twisty turn for the worst. At the other end of the spectrum are the exhortations in the Scriptures that we ought to follow regardless of those circumstances. Philippians 4:4 is one of those verses. The challenge that this verse gives us is always a challenge to fulfil.
