Today we seek to understand the ways in which God has called us to apply Philippians 3 to our lives. We will base our application of Scripture on our observation and interpretation of the passage. The application could look different for each of us, as we are each on our own God-given journey.
As you try to apply Philippians 3 to your life, remember that God’s Word is useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness. Are you thinking or living in a way that contradicts God’s Word? What is God trying to teach you through Philippians 3? With the application of Scripture, our goal is to become more like Christ as we glorify Him and love His people.
As we attempt to apply God’s Word to our lives we ask that God will help us do what Paul urged Christ-followers to do in Ephesians 4:1–3: “I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Let us pray: Lord, help us walk in a manner worthy of Your calling. May we walk with humility, gentleness, patience, love, and unity.
