This study of Philippians has been absolutely life-changing for me. I've read Philippians many times before, but right now we are studying it in-depth in Sunday school AND Wednesday night prayer meeting. Needless to say, I am learning a lot more about Paul, about having joy in all circumstances, about counting all things loss, about pressing on toward what is ahead. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. I feel God really working on me right now, mainly in the area of dying to the flesh and living in Him. It's such a tough thing, this putting off the flesh. And as Bro. Greg reminded us tonight, life is a journey, not a sprint. I suspect I'll be working on it until the day He takes me home. I thank God for being patient with me. I'm realizing how much I have thought of myself and how much confidence, or lack thereof, I have put in my own self. It's just really not about me. It's about Him. How I hope He continues this work in me til I get it.
