Wesley's Notes for Philippians 1:9


1:9 And this I pray, that your love - Which they had already shown. May abound yet more and more - The fire which burned in the apostle never says, It is enough. In knowledge and in all spiritual sense - Which is the ground of all spiritual knowledge. We must be inwardly sensible of divine peace, joy, love; otherwise, we cannot know what they are.

    PHILIPPIANS 1:27 ONLY LET YOUR CONVERSATION BE AS IT BECOMETH THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST THAT WHETHER I COME AND SEE YOU OR ELSE BE ABSENT I MAY HEAR OF YOUR AFFAIRS THAT YOU STAND FAST IN ONE SPIRIT WITH ONE MIND STRIVING TOGETHER FOR THE FAITH OF THE GOSPEL **** PHILIPPIANS 2:2 FULFILL YOU MY JOY THAT YOU BE LIKE MINDED HAVING THE SAME LOVE BEING OF ONE ACCORD OF ONE MIND
  • Lu2677
    I said,"In the light of Philippians 1:27" My question was rhetorical=asked in order to make a statement rather than to get an answer. I was bringing it into the light for those here that say"believe whatever you want, as long as you are under the blood you are saved" and comments to that affect. I do know the answer, and thank you for your input.I hope others will give it serious consideration.

    Hi Lu2677; but you already know the answer to that: the Lord commands us to be of the same mind, and to all speak the same thing; on Spirit, one Lord, one Father, one faith, one baptism, etc. There as many reasons as there are divisions, but they are all disapproved by God; just as He has given us His one Word. As there's only one true way of being converted and saved; there can only be one way!
  • Bruce
    Lu: your question is just a little ambiguous? In The Body, there are multitudes of different people brought up differently. They eat different foods,dress differently. But there's Only One Body,One Savior,One Way. Different Beliefs not ok. / in the churches,are many, many multitudes. That build their belief around Their Sins. The more oks! The better they feel./ Only The Blood of The Lamb Saves.
  • Edna
    yes We thank God for giving us one mind agreeing in one faith. It is good to be engaged with Our Lord and Savior specking with encourageing one and other with a lively hope that he cannot lie.Being born again with his life and a renewed mind we do draw near.Also we are kept by the power of God. We are his beloved children Keep reading> The Lord Jesus said he would send us his spirit to teach us
  • Lu2677
    In light of Philippians 1:27 Why do people say it is "ok" to have different beliefs, in the body of Christ?
