How to Have Joy While Living In This World – Part 5

Pastor Terry Wilcox

Philippians 2:12-18

Few things are harder to put up with, than the annoyance of a good example.  -Mark Twain

Dr. Warren Wiersbe identified the issue like this:

Admiration for a great person can inspire us, but it cannot enable us. Unless the person can enter into our own lives and share his skills, we cannot attain to his heights of accomplishment. It takes more than an example on the outside; it takes power on the inside.

Philippians 2:13
Galatians 2:20
Philippians 2:12
  This verse is not about .

The Greek behind English “work out” was used to describe  and .

Philippians 2:14
  My title: GI GO is not about computers. It is the “the God who works in you” of Philippians 2:13 and the God
  who comes “out of you” in Philippians 2:12.

  1. God in
    Romans 8:29
    Clearly, God’s purpose for each of us is to become the image of Christ.
  2. God out
    Also, clearly, he provides the power. Our English word comes from the Greek in Philippians 2:13 translated “works in you.”

    Where to get this power?
      a. His  – I Thessalonians 2:13
      b. Prayer – Acts 1:14; Acts 4:23-31; Acts 12:5, 12
