This week was the last in our four week look at the book of Philippians. Pastor Ted's focus on the fourth chapter centered on verses 4-13 and tucked away in this very powerful portion of scripture is the secret to happiness. Paul, throughout the entire letter is telling these first century Christians that they cannot allow themselves to slip into a victim mentality. WE also cannot allow ourselves to fall into this deadly trap. As disciples of Christ we can do ALL things through Christ who gives us strength. We can walk with a confidence and a swagger yet still walk in humility and unity with our brothers and sisters, because we know that Christ is with us. We have to remember that Paul never saw himself as a victim and yet he went through persecution like we have never known and will likely never see. This last sermon from the book is one that will inspire and spur you on toward living a life that is full and fruitful in your quest to be a follower of Christ. We truly have the opportunity to unlock the "Secret of Happiness."
