|Staying in the Word|
Chapter One, Lesson Two
LONGING FOR THE BRETHREN Page 6
** What were the four elements of Paul's prayer on behalf of his beloved Philippians?
** Paul's heartfelt joy was made manifest by how much he was "Longing for the Brethren". When his love drove him to pray for such needful and wonderful things on behalf of the Philippians, we should pay attention and learn from his example.
** Each week we enjoy the riches of God's precious word together and try to apply what we are learning. This has been a very encouraging day. It has also been a very challenging one. If I am to seriously consider my spiritual integrity before a Holy God and a watching world, I too must let my love "abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that I may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ".
This is measurable, if I have in my heart a "Longing for the Brethren".
