Devotional 6: What "Working Out" Looks Like - Philippians 2:14-18

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 6: What “Working Out” Looks Like – Philippians 2:14-18

1. Read the passage slowly.

  • What stands out to you?
  • What challenges you from this passage? What needs to change in you?

2. Consider

“Not complaining and arguing? Not only does that seem nitpicky, but Paul fails to realize that complaining and arguing is an American pastime. If it were a sanctioned Olympic sport, the U.S. would have no competition for the gold medal. If you’re skeptical that this is true, you must be listening to soft rock instead of talk radio.” – Ramon Presson, pg. 121

3. Prayer and Praise

  • Personalize this passage into prayer, including confession.
  • Suggested Worship Song: “Don’t Ever Stop,” Chris Tomlin
