Wesley's Notes for Philippians 1:11


1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God - Here are three properties of that sincerity which is acceptable to God: It must bear fruits, the fruits of righteousness, all inward and outward holiness, all good tempers, words, and works; and that so abundantly, that we may be filled with them. The branch and the fruits must derive both their virtue and their very being from the all - supporting, all - supplying root, Jesus Christ. As all these flow from the grace of Christ, so they must issue in the glory and praise of God.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 1:11


Php 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness. This must follow from being "sincere", etc. Those who are earnest and sincere occupy themselves with works of righteousness, such as are due to faith in Jesus Christ and his help, and which are unto the glory and praise of God. In no way can we glorify God more than by living holy, helpful lives.

Discussion for Philippians 1

  • Mark R
    I believe the Apostle Paul is telling his readers to never retire in the faith. Always preach the Gospel in some sort of way that reflects the love of Jesus Christ. We as Christians should never put down our tools of faith that God has given to us. We should remain focus on the call that God has ordained us to have. The easy chair and house coat Christian need not apply in this letter!

    Ephesians 1:13 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. We must BELIEVE gospel of Salvation 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and be saved and God will sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Amen
  • A disciple
    There are plenty of examples in the New Testament about the need to continue in the grace of God and the need to hold fast that which we have that we lose not the things we have wrought. Look at Ephesus for example; first and chief of the seven chosen from Asia: yet with all their great success they were in danger of their Candlestick being removed out of its place for forgetting their First Love!
