Seeking God’s Pleasure – A Study of Philippians
“The Secret of Contentment”
As Paul brings his letter to an end, he speaks very personally of his own situation as a way both to commend the church for its generosity toward him in his need and also to teach them how to face adversity and plenty. The secret of contentment is anchored in two mighty promises found in this final section of the letter: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me, ” and “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ” To walk in the light of these promises is to know contentment in this world, something in very short supply today as our economy squeezes the living daylights out of our normal perspectives and threatens us with fear, doubt and disaster.
