ENCOURAGING THE BRETHREN Philippians 1:12-18 Download this Bible Study
** If we were to follow the pattern set for us last week by the apostle Paul when he was "Longing for the Brethren", what would we be faithful to do when we are out of each other's company?
** What were the four elements of Paul's prayer on behalf of his beloved Philippians?
** Did you find yourself to be more prayerfully aware of your brothers and sisters in the body of Christ this past week?
** Having seen Paul being "Thankful for the Brethren" and "Longing for the Brethren", we now move into a more proactive posture for the apostle. He now sets his course for the high calling of "Encouraging the Brethren". As we enter into today's study, lets consider two questions.
Please open your Bibles to Philippians 1:12-18 as we observe the apostle in his quest to be "Encouraging the Brethren" by using the circumstances of his life, no matter how severe those circumstances might be.
