Thesis: Where Is Your Contentment Meter?
Scripture Text: Philippians 4:10-13
I. Circumstances Should Not Dictate Contentment
II. Contentment Is Learned
III. Christ Is Everything
II CORINTHIANS 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.
I TIMOTHY 6:6
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—PHILIPPIANS 4:10-13
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
