Observation Continued: Philippians 3

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you. Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh— though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless. But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

Philippians 3

Watch Week Four Day Two

Today we will continue to observe Philippians 3. As you read the chapter again, focus on highlighting the key words and repeated words, comparisons and contrasts, commands, and questions. We have created a downloadable worksheet for you to print and use for your notes. Remember:

– Key words are often repeated throughout the text to give the text meaning.
– Comparisons and contrasts help us understand the principles and teachings of the text. Contrasts compare opposite things, such as good and bad.Comparisons highlight similarities by using the word like and as.
– Commands help us understand what God is calling us to do.
– Questions help us dig deeper into the text.

Once you have observed these elements, make a list of what you learned about a key word and/or person. This list is to help identify big ideas and themes we would otherwise miss! From your observation of Philippians 3, identify a major theme for the chapter. Remember, a theme is based on the subject, person, teaching, or event of the text. Share your theme of Philippians 3 with us!
