Wednesday Night Bible Study | Foundations Bible Study – Philippians
Foundations Bible Study, Wednesdays 7 pm.
In our Wednesday night Bible study, we are focussing on the epistles, it will be a year of finding greater revelation of who we are in Christ! Believers who have an understanding of their God-given identity live stable lives in the midst of an unstable world. The power of the Christian life must be lived from the Spirit of grace. It cannot be reduced to a system of dos and don’ts but must be continued as a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Wednesdays we are continuing in the epistle of Philippians. In this series “The Epistle Of Joy Part 2” – We see Churches are filled with people from different races, cultures, and backgrounds. We are to be an example to the world of the power of the new birth, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit. What the world cannot do, the supernatural power of God can.
A sad thing happens when the church starts to live like the world. Paul heard from prison that factions were developing in the Philippian church. Here He writes to remind them of the Holy Spirit who lives in them and the fruit which He produces.
Writer: The Apostle Paul
Time: About 61 – 66 AD
Introduction: Philippians is known as the Epistle of Joy. Paul’s first encounter with the people of Philippi is found in Acts 16 where Paul received a vision of a gentleman from Macedonia asking him to come over there. Philippi was a chief city of Macedonia. It is referred to as a colony, a colony was a Roman city for their war veterans. The people of Philippi were not Jews but gentiles.
Theme: Joy (chara) in the midst of every situation. Paul suffered imprisonment, yet he had joy. This joy is above and beyond what the world can have or understand.
Join us Wednesday nights at 7 pm. There is ministry for all ages. We will begin with a time of corporate worship and then move into our various ministries for a time of discipleship.
