Devotional 14: Whatever - Philippians 4:8-9

Hello Metro,

Welcome to our online devotional for our Philippians series. This devotional is intended to be a simple way for you to go a little deeper in our study, and to remind yourself from week to week what the Holy Spirit is illuminating to you. It would also make for a great conversation over coffee with a friend! Taking a little time just once per week to review what you heard and to read the passage over again will take God’s Word into you more deeply, or as Paul said to the Colossians, to “let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Each devotional also includes the worship song we concluded each sermon with. Click on the link to take a few minutes of private worship. May this devotional be an encouragement to you and your walk with Christ.

Devotional 14: Whatever – Philippians 4:8-9

1. Read the passage slowly.

  • What stands out to you?
  • What is the key word in this passage to you? What are the implications?

2. Consider

“Sometimes in the life of the mind, you battle image with image. To get one dishonorable image out of your head, you have to replace it with an honorable one. You can’t battle it with nothing, right?” – Matt Chandler, pg. 180

3. Prayer and Praise

  • Choose 3-5 true and honorable things to pray about, and pray!
  • Suggested Worship Song: “Don’t Ever Stop,” Chris Tomlin
