Chap 1 : Christ, our Life FOUR ASPECTS OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST Chap 2 : Christ, our Example Chap 3 : Christ, our Confidence Chap 4 : Christ, our Strength
Chap 1 : Christ, our Life 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 20 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. Magnified, declared great, get glory and praise. Let you light so shine .. The Mission of the individual Christian - to exalt Christ. Rejoicing comes through mission of the gospel fulfilled.
Chap 2 : Christ, our Example … in Humility contributes to UNITY 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. JOY
Chap 3 : Christ, our Confidence Confidence in Christ means no confidence in the flesh 3 For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh— 4 though I myself have reasons for such confidence. i.e. to be saved through the Law or one’s own righteousness 7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[a] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
Chap 4 : Christ, our Strength 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Context
