SCRIPTURE: Philippians 3:17-19
DISCUSSION: Verses 17-19 set the context for Paul’s instruction on waiting for the Savior.

How does a godly walk or a carnal walk affect your desire to see Jesus? Discuss the various things Paul mentions to describe those who are “the enemies of the cross of Christ.”
