Ask God for His understanding of Philippians 3-4. Read Philippians 3-4. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Salvation cannot be earned, nor can God’s approval. Paul’s life is an example of this. He had the perfect pedigree: born of the tribe of Benjamin, was a Pharisee and upheld the law, and he was circumcised. Ultimately, none of it mattered, as salvation can only be obtained through faith in Christ. In the final chapter, Paul addresses several personal issues within the church. He sets a precedent for mediation within the church and reminds the reader of the importance of prayer. Paul ends his letter with his traditional final greeting.
