SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:1
DISCUSSION: The title for Sunday’s sermon was “Overcoming Anxiety.” How do you think Philippians 4:1 connects to the main idea of overcoming anxiety? The apostle Paul is setting the context for the verses that follow by opening with his admonition to “stand fast in the Lord.” How does standing fast in our faith in Christ lead to peace and overcoming anxiety?
SONG: “Blessed Assurance” by Fanny J. Crosby & Phoebe P. Knapp
SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:2-5
DISCUSSION: In these verses, we see some church conflict and the command to be gentle (with a reminder to worship right in the middle). Why does church conflict happen? Why do you think Paul emphasized rejoicing in the Lord in the midst of this conflict he described?
SONG: “Worthy of Worship” by Mark Blankenship & Terry W. York
SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:6-9
DISCUSSION: Are you holding onto anxious thoughts? Take some time to survey your heart and see if there are things you need to pray about and surrender to the Lord in trust. Take some time to heed the words of Paul in Phil. 4:8 and find Scriptures to memorize that will help you with worry.
