Philippians, Chapter Four, Lesson One

LIVING IN HARMONY            Page 6
V. 6 (cont'd.)

** There are three different terms used in this verse for prayer, do you see them?

Prayer - This term carries the idea of worship.
Supplication - Is a crying out for help.
Requests - This calls for us to be specific.

V. 7 ** If we will be faithful to follow these four steps as we strive to be "Living in Harmony" with each other, what will be the result?

"...the peace of God...shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." God's peace will insure that we are "Living in Harmony"!

** When we experience this marvelous peace, will we be able to explain it to the unsaved around us?

No - it "surpasses all comprehension"... it is a miracle for which we praise God.

** According to this verse, who are the only people who experience this peace?

Those who are "in Christ Jesus". cf. Philippians 3:14

EXTRICATE

** We have learned together the importance of following the right example and of being a good example ourselves. What was the problem in our passage today that had sprung out of following bad examples?

Euodia and Syntyche experienced the lack of harmony and there was division in the Body of Christ.

DELINEATE

** What were the four steps we need to take so that we can continue "Living in Harmony"?

1) Rejoice always 2) Be patient 3) Do not be anxious 4) Pray for one another

EVALUATE

** When I am feeling tension or disunity with another believer, which of these am I least likely to do?

That is going to depend upon your situation and the relationship you have with your brother or sister in the Lord. But no matter what, we must be faithful to do all that we can to restore the damaged relationship. cf Romans 12:18

ACTIVATE

** Lord, help us to be more like You. Willing to die for each other if need be, to show our love and commitment to be "Living in Harmony".
