Philippians: Chapter 4

v. 6-7

Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guide your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.


Prayer is the most important communication with God. The verse tells us that we must always commune with God and pray about everything there is in life. For it is through our prayers that we are able to lift up our impediments through Christ. And for as long as we remain faithful to Him in our prayers, no fear nor uncertainty would ever fill our hearts.

Philippians: Chapter 3

v. 8-9

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, Counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God's way of making us right with himself depends on faith.


The verse tells us that it is not by strictly abiding the laws that we will be saved. For no one could ever follow them without flaw. Hence, it is through our faith that we may be saved. For it is not through our actions that we conquer salvation, but it is through our faith in our salvation that we act accordingly.

Philippians: Chapter 2

v. 3-4

Don't be selfish, don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others too.


In everything we do, we must not do it because of our own selfish desires or simply to impress others. In every thing we do, we must do it to glorify God's name. We must also keep ourselves humble so that temptation would not lead us to desire worldly goals and success. Hence, we will not be hindered in our way as we walk on the path of God's holiness.

Philippians: Chapter 1

v. 21-24

For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if i live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So, I really don't know which is better. I'm torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be for more better. But for your sake, it is better that I continue to live.


The verse tells us that we must embrace our lives and live it fully in serving Christ and spreading His Word. We must not feel weary about living, we must go forth and utilize every moment we have in our lives to serve and proclaim the Word of God.
