|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Two, Lesson Five
THE JOY OF REUNION Philippians 2:25-30 Download this Bible Study
** Every Christian needs to establish the pattern of turning to God's Word for answers to the questions that life can put forth. In our ongoing study of Paul's letter to the Philippians, we have arrived at the end of chapter two. The apostle will be portraying for us what it is like to be reunited with a loved one in the Lord. As he does so, we are going to be privileged to meet a man of great Christ-like qualities.
** Last week we asked, "Who is it in your Christian life that the Lord has made very dear to you?" Today the question before us is, "Who is it in Scripture that the Lord has made dear to you?" We should be able to identify, study and copy those personalities in Scripture that truly lived for the glory of God. As Paul shows us "The Joy of Reunion" in our passage for today, we are going to meet just such an individual. Please open your Bibles to Philippians 2:25-30
