Wesley's Notes for Philippians 4:8


4:8 Finally - To sum up all. Whatsoever things are true - Here are eight particulars placed in two fourfold rows; the former containing their duty; the latter, the commendation of it. The first word in the former row answers the first in the latter; the second word, the second and so on. True - In speech. Honest - In action. Just - With regard to others. Pure - With regard to yourselves. Lovely - And what more lovely than truth? Of good report - As is honesty, even where it is not practised. If there be any virtue - And all virtues are contained in justice. If there be any praise - In those things which relate rather to ourselves than to our neighbour. Think on these things - That ye may both practise them yourselves, and recommend them to others.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 4:8


Php 4:8 Finally, brethren. As he concludes his letter, he sums up Christian duties into a single paragraph. Whatsoever things are true. Truth in word, in action, and in thought, must be cherished. Christ is THE TRUTH. His followers must be truth itself. Honest. The Greek is "reverend". Whatever is worthy of reverence. Just. Strict justice in all dealings; an upright life. Pure. Chaste lives and clean hearts and thoughts. Lovely. Such deeds as spring from love and inspired love in others. Of good report. A life of which no evil thing can be truthfully said. If [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise. Lest he may have omitted some excellency he adds, "If there be aught else which is virtuous or praiseworthy, let these all be the things to which you give your minds".

    Dear beloved, I'm praying in agreement with you that God will move to sort your mortgage issues out. Remember that 'the eternal God is your Refuge and underneath you are the everlasting Arms' (Deuteronomy 33: 27) I'm sensing God saying, 'I've got this!' Come on, praiiiise the LORD!

    Verse 6 jumped out at me this morning as I was reading I know that God doesn't put more us than we can bare, but I feel that sometimes He lets things happen to get our attention. I am going through a dark valley with our mortgage company. My prayer life wasn't what it should be and this verse as well as others may me wake up and say listen. God knows all and He just wants you to come and ask.
