Contentment, Christ and Our Credit
Philippians 4.10-23

Contentment (v.10-11)
  • Defn:  State of satisfaction of the soul despite circumstances.
  • Everything in our culture pushes us away from contentment.
  • Satan continually feeds us lies to keep us from contentment.
  • The Truth:  we deserve hell and Jesus has saved us - everything else is bonus.

Christ (v.12-13)
  • The secret of contentment is Christ. 
  • In abundance:  Christ has strengthened me to work, earn, and save.
  • In need:  Christ is giving me strength that food and freedom never could.

Contentment can birth generosity (v.14).

Credit (v.15-23)
  • We provide for the ministry of others (v.15-16). 
  • We invest in eternity (v.17).
  • We meet practical needs (v.18).
  • We worship the Lord (v.18).
  • We receive what God supplies (v.19-20).
