Whatever happens

I’ve got some simple questions today:

“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.” (Philippians 1: 27-30)

Whatever happens…

Whether you are persecuted or sick, successful or failure, if things are for you or against you, happy or hurt, whatever happens ….

BEHAVE: How are you going to respond and react today? “conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.”

BELONG: Who are the people you stand with today? “I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel”

BRAVE: What will you not give up on today? “without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you.”

BELIEVE: Will you trust Jesus enough to suffer? “For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him”

BENEFIT: Who will you look to in the struggle of today to learn and gain the positives of your experience? “since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have”
