Give like the Philippians – Philippians 4:19

Philippians 4:19

[19] But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (KJV)

Paul was writing to the Philippians. Most other Churches gave what was required, but the Philippians gave above and beyond. These people gave their all to the Lord. They loved their God and wanted to show him just how much and had also helped Paul in his time of need.

According to his riches in glory – Paul tells them that God has infinite ways they can’t even imagine and because of their love and sacrifices, God will repay and bless them.

In Christ Jesus – everything a Christian receives from God is given through his son, Jesus. Without Jesus’ work on the cross, no one would be worthy. However because of Jesus, God will reward a Christian’s kindness of others, with kindness from Him.

In this case, Paul is thanking the Philippians for their abundant help and is telling them that although he can’t repay them for all their kindness, God will!

Heavenly Father

I pray Lord that I could be more like the Philippians and give as much as I can and more. You look after me each and every day Father and when I compare at the end of the day what you have done for me and what I have done for you, I come up short each and every time.

But Lord, even though I could never bless others as you do me, I can give everything to the best of my abilities and you will know what is in my heart.

I thank you Lord that you love me and that you have placed it in my heart to love you and others back.

You are the greatest love I will ever know and I am blessed to be your child.

In the holy name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, I pray.

Amen
