Philippians: To Live Is Christ, by Nancy McGuirk, Paperback
- Author: Nancy McGuirk
Many Christian believers know we are supposed to have joy in spite of difficult circumstances, yet we tend to lack a proven role model to follow.
The Apostle Paul was one such role model. Chained to an uncertain future in a Roman jail, Paul wrote words of encouragment and hope to his fellow believers. Not only did Paul not complain about his difficulties, but he also found reason to rejoice in them, mainly, that the Gospel was being spread as a result of his confinement.
Paul's epistle to the Philippians is a treasure trove of spiritual insights about how we can rejoice in the Lord regardless of our circumstances, and live as citizens of heaven in a world brought down by daily difficulties. Paul lived it out and reminded the Philippians throughout this brief letter.
Philippians: To Live Is Christ is suitable for group or personal Bible study. It provides and eight week study of Paul's letter to the church at Philippi. Daily lessons and weekly reviews are supplemented by background information on Paul and Philippi, application questions, quotes from Christian authors and leaders, reflective prayers, and helpful marginal notes.
It's possible to live in this world without Christ, but as Paul wrote, to really live is Christ. Only He gives the reason and strength to rejoice when life says the opposite.
