The Text

Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable,
whatever things are right, whatever things are pure, whatever things are pleasing,
whatever things are commendable, if there is any excellence of character and if
anything praiseworthy, think about these things. 9 And the things which you have
learned and received and heard about and seen in me, practice these things, and the
God of peace will be with you.

EXPOSITION OF PHILIPPIANS 4:1020

The Text

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last you have renewed your
concern for me, for whom also you were thinking, but you had no opportunity to
express it. 11 Not that I speak from need, for I have learned to be content in
whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know how both to make do with little and I
know how to have an abundance. In everything and in all things I have learned the
secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to have an abundance and to go
without. 13 I am able to do all things by the one who strengthens me. 14 Nevertheless
you have done well by sharing with me in my affliction. 15 Now you also know,
Philippians, that at the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia,
no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you alone,
16
because even in Thessalonica on more than one occasion you sent for my need.
17
Not that I seek the gift, but I seek for the profit that increases to your account.
18
But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am well
supplied because I received from Epaphroditus what you had sent, a fragrant
offering, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. 19 And my God will fulfill
your every need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God
and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
