ASKING AND SEEKING AND KNOCKING A little girl was climbing into bed and her mother asked, “Anne, did you remember to say your prayers?”

“Well,” she replied, “I got on my knees and started to say them as I do every night. And then all of a sudden I thought, ‘I’ll bet [...]

Satisfied

Satisfaction In Christ By Dr. W. Wilbert Welch, Longtime President Grand Rapids Baptist College & Seminary Philippians – a remarkable product of Paul’s inspired pen. Here is the distilled essence of Biblical Christianity. Only four chapters and one hundred four verses. I recommend it be read at least once a month for our best spiritual health, easily read in twenty minutes. The book of Philippians reveals Christianity in work clothes, a brand appropriate for both youth and the more mature, for the home as well as the office, for the factory worker and the business executive, and certainly appropriate for both the pastor and the pew. In just a brief reading we soon become aware that Paul is focusing upon the quality of our Christianity (1:6). The emphasis is not correctional as the letters to the Corinthians, nor strong on doctrine as Romans, nor with problems of legalism as in his letter to the Galatians. Even its location in the Pauline epistles seems to harmonize with a doctrinal blueprint. While the author may not have had any special sequential order in mind, yet we recognize a doctrinal orderliness in these epistles. In the book of Romans the believer is seen “in Christ” justified. In Corinthians we are viewed as “sanctified.” In Galatians we are “crucified” in Christ. In Ephesians we are seated with Christ “in the heavenlies.” In Philippians the believer is satisfied – “I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” (Philippians 4:11). In Colossians we see our completeness. “In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him” (Colossians 2:9-10). And in Thessalonians the Lord “is glorified in His saints” (II Thessalonians 1:10). The circle is complete. And who is the author? Paul, a prisoner in Rome. And not one word of grumbling or of discontent. Where did this man go to school? What church did he attend? Please note the author’s background: a prisoner in Caesarea for two years. Shipped to Rome by sea. Endured a 14-day storm. Paul and the ship’s crew of 218 men went 14 days with no food. Shipwrecked three months on the Isle of Melita. Finally at Rome imprisoned. Chained to a guard in six-hour shifts. But – note, no complaints. “For to me to live is Christ” (Philippians 1:21). “I press toward the mark for the prize” (Philippians 3:14). And “rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). [...]
