    Take a good long look at verse 6 !

    Billy for Verse 6@ "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things." Your/our worth is in Him and if we are true to the calling He has placed upon our/your heart He will finish that which He has started! :)

    PARADOX. Verse six ! That to which HE is able to do HE is also able to perform. Simply ask Abba Dad and He will give it to you through Christ our Blessed Lord. Each and every one of us have been given gifts for the restoration of the Kingdom of God in these latter days of His Holy Church indeed. You are a Divine Soldier in His Army. Manafest the Word and do it. Pray for one another and encourage.

    I love the of Paul to Philippians
  • Jefferson
    lots to say, but will only point out what was said in verse nineteen. that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the spirit of Jesus. Paul had sense to know that though forgiven, his salvation would only come when his mortal put on immortality. as Jesus said, he that endure till the end the same shall be saved. we have to live it everyday, till the end.

    I love reading Philippians. Apostle St.Paul, is so compassionate about every word he speaks. He speaks a lot about joy and peace. He stands strong in what he believes in. I love the fact the way He reminds us of the Laws; he explains the difference in the graces and the mercies. When reading Philippians I get more and more out of it each time!!! The verses are all so powerful to me!
