Monday, October 18/31, 2011: Phil 4:10-23, Luke 9:18-22
- passage: Phil 4:10-4:23
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of
me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked
opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned,
in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to
be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I
am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to
suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my
affliction. Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the
gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as
concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica
ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift:
but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. But I have all,
and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which
were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable,
wellpleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according
to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be
glory for ever and ever. Amen. Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The
brethren which are with me greet you. All the saints salute you,
chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
passage: Luke 9:18-9:22
And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were
with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?
They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others
say, that one of the old prophets is risen again. He said unto them,
But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.
And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that
thing; Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected
of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised
the third day.
