Chapter One, Lesson Two
LONGING FOR THE BRETHREN Page

V.11 ** The Philippians (and us as well) might become somewhat overwhelmed by such a prayerful challenge. How is this kind of life possible? How do we even get started? Is it through our own religious effort?
** Did you notice how much of our lives have the fruit of righteousness?
** What is the two-fold result of a Christian's life that has been lived out with an abounding love, an increase in real knowledge and all discernment, the ability to test things that are excellent and with sincerity and blamelessness?
** If we are truly "Longing for the Brethren", we will want to be with them as much as possible. That is where we will find our greatest joy! But beyond that, what will be our desire, even when we are away from them?
