What was Paul thinking when he wrote to the Philippians that in "nothing" be anxious?
Phil 4: 4-6
4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
This passage was not a denial of reality, but it is a reminder to the disciples in Philippians of what affirms their new reality in Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 5:17
7 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
For anyone who is settled in Christ, there is a new Lordship, a new master. This master is Christ Jesus our saviour and our Lord.
We want to share with you the word of God to us from our meeting. For the word of God is light onto our path, a lamp unto our feet..
