Philippians Reading Plan

An Overview: Philippians is a little book of great joy.  In his letter to the church at Philippi, Paul warmly encourages his church family to find contentment in Christ alone no matter their circumstance. He also challenges them to advance the gospel message in their unity, service, humility, stewardship, and sacrifice.  But Paul offers his fellow believers more than his words- he offers his example.  Writing from prison, Paul directs his readers back to the gospel as the ultimate source of true joy.  

We want to help you know and grow closer to Jesus.  To help you do that, we have put together a simple reading plan so you can get as much out of this sermon series as you can.  We hope you find this helpful.

We have provided 5 readings each week.   

 What to do when you read:

  1. Each time you read the letter of Philippians try to identify the themes of the letter.
  2. When you read through an individual chapter, try to read it two or three times. Ask these 3 living questions: 
    What does this passage tell me about God? 
    What does this passage tell me about humanity? 
    How does this passage instruct me to live differently?  

    Underline parts that stand out.
