Devotional 16: Bearing Fruit We May Not See - Philippians 4:14-23

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 16: Bearing Fruit We May Not See – Philippians 4:14-23

1. Read the passage slowly.

  • What stands out to you?
  • What do you think verse 17 means? How does the passage help you?

2. Consider

“It’s so easy in the church to gloss over such questions, to assume by our proximity to the community of faith and the teaching of the gospel that we are immersed personally in the pursuit of Christ. We can become content in ourselves and not experience the holy discontentment that would push us to find true contentment according to God’s riches in Christ instead of the paltry riches of religion or playing church games.” – Matt Chandler, pg. 220

3. Prayer and Praise

  • Review your notes and pray through the things the Lord has impressed upon you in this series. Then share it with someone!
  • Suggested Worship Song: “Christ is Enough,” Hillsong
