Do you struggle keeping your faith in a world that's losing its mind? These 31 short chapters take a deep dive into the book of Philippians, which Robert Morgan says is the Bible's handbook for tackling each day with an undaunted attitude.
Life is unpredictable, and the world is unstable. People have never been so confounded, sensing our culture, economy, and geopolitical systems are spiraling downward. Even in our personal lives, none of us knows what will happen next—which is why God gave us the book of Philippians. This short letter—just over 100 verses—can help us learn to live overflowing lives in an overwhelming world.
Philippians is one of the most practical books of the Bible, which Robert Morgan says is as fresh as ever. Its theme can be summed up in these verses: "Whatever happens, conduct yourself in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then . . . I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you" (1:27–28). Among the many lessons in Whatever Happens, readers will learn how to:
- Use prayer to energize their life
- Make today about others
- Stay as cheerful as possible in all circumstances
- Let others lean on their strength
- Start everything with praise and end everything with prayer
As the apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians from a prison cell, he was facing dire circumstances and an unsettled future. Would he be released or executed? But he knew one thing—that whatever happened, he was going to stand firm in his faith and live a life worthy of the gospel. And no matter what we are going through today, we can do the same.
