Observation Continued: Philippians 4

Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4

Watch Week Five Day Two

Today we will continue to observe Philippians 4. As you read the chapter again today, 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.

– Key words are often repeated through out 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. Remember, lists can lead us to truths within the text; they help us highlight important ideas. Then, based off of your observations for Philippians 4, identify a major theme for the chapter. Remember, a theme is based on the main idea of the text. Share your theme of Philippians 4 with us!
