Thriving Families Have Thriving Women (Thrive, Part 2)

Proverbs 31 lays out a beautiful vision of what it means for women to thrive. And as we look at the vision for thriving families, we know that women who are living healthy lives as wives, moms, and sisters in Christ will be key to that vision. However, we also know that sin is ever present in us and there is an enemy who doesn't want healthy families with healthy women. The Bible has much to say about how women can be fully alive in Christ, serving their families and their church in the way God designed.

Proverbs 31:10-31

United in Commitment

Paul's last instructions to the church in Philippi include important words that we all need to hear about commitment to the mission of God through the work of the church. By recounting the way the Philippians support Paul early in his ministry, we see the sort of selfless, constant, and joyful giving to one another that comes from our faith in Christ. We also see what this kind of commitment to the church and her mission produces in us and in the world.

United in How We Stand

Earlier in his letter to the Philippians, Paul urges his fellow believers to stand firm. As we begin to end our series in Philippians, we now see how we are to stand firm. And as with everything else in our lives, the answer is found in Christ. We are invited to find a firm and sure peace in which to stand as we rejoice in the Lord, pray to the Lord, and dwell on the Lord.
