In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that those who are filled with the fruit of righteousness are those who are truly happy.
Principle for Bible Reading
Mine Within the Context First
Making connections to other passages enriches Bible study. We need to make connections, but we also need to be careful to import other passages into the one we are studying before we have given the passage itself its proper due.
Cross-reference and do word searches, but let each author speak for himself without making a collage of other passages too quickly.
- What was the last good deed that you did and when was it?
- How does the fruit of righteousness come through Christ in Philippians 1:11? Why do these good works come through Jesus?
- Watch the lab. Do you agree that Paul’s prayer is about God glorifying himself?
