Imagine a faith – a life – that when trouble comes, it not only survives but it thrives. You don’t just ‘get by’, but you get by with hope, with courage, with peace, and with joy. That’s the faith depicted in the letter to the Philippians, and in this series, we’re exploring what you “Need to Know” to have that kind of faith.
For all of our lives, we’ve been taught what to think. The best of our teachers, parents, and leaders will teach us how to think. What Jesus wants is for us to think again: to think like him, to become like him, to love like him.
It’s a lot easier to get there if you know that you’ll make it, and Philippians 1 promises you that you will. That’s faith. The question is, how do we know it - and how do live like it's true?
