A word from Pastor Matt

Matt edit small

 

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Here is one of the most encouraging yet most misused and misunderstood verses in the Bible. Philippians 4:13 is quoted often publically by: politicians taking offices, athletes receiving awards, and entrepreneurs recalling past successes. Philippians 4:13, like so many other verses in the Bible, has become thoroughly Americanized. Many Americans take this verse and use it as a battle cry to launch into the unknown as they seek success. However, this is not at all how the Apostle Paul was using the verse.

The context of Philippians 4:13 is that Paul had learned to be content in all circumstances. Regardless of fame, riches, or glory, he had learned the secret of success. Ironically the secret of success is not achieving dreams through Christ who strengthens us. Rather, the secret of success is discovering that, though we can do all things through Christ, all things are not for us to do. Meaning the secret of success is contentment with Christ. The secret of success is being at peace with Christ even in circumstances that may place us at odds with worldly success. Doing all things through Christ is not looking for dragons to slay, but it is remembering that Christ is with us and is doing His good work in us no matter what the circumstance.

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Psalm 118:24 (HCSB)
