Partnership : Partnership in Contentment
Pastor Tom Grieb continues our series "Partnership." Paul lets us in on a little secret. No, it really is a big secret. It’s the sort of secret that has everything to do with the way we live our lives. In Philippians 4:12, Paul talks about “the secret of being content in any and every circumstance.” He references the ability to be content whether in plenty or want. In an age where enough is never enough and having to do without is a major challenge, Paul challenges us to center ourselves in Christ. In fact, Paul asserts that in Christ who strengthens us, we are able to endure any circumstance. Paul was living proof of that. He knew what it meant to have a lot and to have nothing. He would not be swayed one way or another by that because his trust was in the sufficiency of Christ to provide just what he needed. We’d do well to put that into practice. That was Paul’s “secret” to living life; it should be ours as well.
