Wesley's Notes for Philippians 4:5


4:5 Let your gentleness - Yieldingness, sweetness of temper, the result of joy in the Lord. Be known - By your whole behaviour. To all men - Good and bad, gentle and froward. Those of the roughest tempers are good natured to some, from natural sympathy and various motives; a Christian, to all. The Lord - The judge, the rewarder, the avenger. Is at hand - Standeth at the door.

    I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Well said, I am retiring and will continue to believe on the Word of God forever. This is therapy for my soul, and always remember when we stand with Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior we are more than conquerors. "Will not fall for anything." Pray and believe on the Word, Jesus will not fail us. Amen!
