For instance, Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians from a Roman prison cell, yet despite those dire circumstances, his major theme in the letter was joy. How did Paul find joy in a Roman prison cell? He didn't He took his joy in Christ into jail with him. Paul's circumstances did not dictate his attitude. In this letter, he demonstrated several life attitudes that were rather shocking in their audacity and counter intuitiveness...

  • Rejoice in the Lord, always
  • Living means living for Christ, and dying is even better
  • Think of others as better than yourselves
  • Have the mind of Christ
  • Do everything without arguing and complaining
  • Whatever things were gain, count them as loss
  • Forget what lies behind
  • Be anxious for nothing
  • You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you
