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

    "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Phil 1:21.

    Really? To live isn't watching the widescreen god? To live isn't playing sports? It isn't paying total attention to "devices". To live isn't to spend one's time in an all out drive to be entertained, even when in church?

    If all that is living, then you bet! that dying in Jesus is a gain unsurpassed on this very earth...
  • Eutychus
    In every letter of Paul, save Galatians, he addresses the saints as 'saints'. In fact, neither word, 'disciple' or 'disciples' ever occurs in the Bible again, after Acts 21:16.

    It is my belief that our emphasis on making disciples, instead of making saints, has seriously limited the church. God doesn't need disciples today, He needs saints, and it is our task to help the Holy Spirit produce them.

    PHILIPPIANS 1:28 and in nothing terrified by your adversaries which is to them an evident token of perdition but to you of salvation and that of GOD--1:29--FOR UNTO YOU IT IS GIVEN IN THE BEHALF OF CHRIST NOT ONLY TO BELIEVE ON HIM BUT ALSO TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE MARK 8:35 for whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever shall lose his for MY sake and the gospels the same shall save it

    Verse 10~We live in a world full of distractions and we must make sure of important things and make sure that we prioritize spiritual things and things that will be of lasting value.
  • Al
    The verse where it says that to live is serving following loving Christ
  • 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!
