Your Public Behavior
Phil. 1:27 ¶ Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,
Phil. 1:28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.
Phil. 1:29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake,
Phil. 1:30 engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.
Phil. 2:14 ¶ Do all things without grumbling or disputing,
Phil. 2:15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
Phil. 2:16 holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
Phil. 2:17 Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.
Phil. 2:18 Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.
Phil. 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Phil. 3:21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
Phil. 4:1 ¶ Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.
Phil. 4:4 ¶ Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Phil. 4:5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand;
Phil. 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Phil. 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil. 4:8 ¶ Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Phil. 4:9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
