Each week in September we will look at a “famous” passage of scripture but ask the questions: “What’s next?” Often, when we keep reading to the next verse that “famous” passage challenges us in new and exciting ways.
Scripture: Philippians 4:13
Title: “I Can Do All Things…”
Theme: This verse of encouragement has become mantra for everyone, from professional athletes to stressed out high school students. But is it really true? Can God in Christ empower us to do anything we want? Or might Paul be talking about accomplishing something altogether different than our personal desires? Maybe the next verse will help us figure it out.
Philippians 4:13 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
