Foundations for Faithfulness (Philippians 4:2-9)

Phillip Stuckey, February 26, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

There are many exhortations in the scripture for the Christian to remain faithful (Rev. 2:10; Heb. 10:35-39). Yet, we often struggle to say faithful. In the fourth chapter of Philippians, the apostle Paul speaks of things that give every saint some foundations for faithfulness.

Philippians 4:2–9 (Listen)

I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
