Finding strength from the centre
Reflections for a Church in Lockdown
We come to Chapter 3 of Philippians and Paul takes us deeper still in this lockdown journey: to the very core of his inner strength and resilience, to the convictions and the revelation which have shaped his life. He is helping us to travel back to the centre, to find strength again and to understand what gives him the power to run.
Questions for discussion from Philippians 3:
- What does the autumn season look like for you and how will this impact your energy and discipleship?
- Where have you found strength over the last few months? Where are you finding space to regroup and recharge?
- Paul’s relationship with Christ is at the very centre of his life and values. How can we help each other to draw such strength from the gospel?
- What are the spiritual dangers and temptations facing your own church community at the present time? Are there any similarities to Philippi? How can you counter them?
