Pastor Rob teaches that Paul write this to teach us that we need to make Jesus our focus in all areas of our life! This means that no matter when or how He calls us we answer!
Pastor Rob teaches us that Paul wanted people to be encouraged and not get stuck on the philosophy. Because to be stuck in the philosophy means to give Satan a window to mess with you.
Pastor Rob teaches us that we should always be thankful for what God has given us. That if we are faithfully obedient in following God rather than the things of this world that He will provide ALL that we need.
Pastor Rob teaches us that while we are all as one body with the same goal of bringing people to Jesus, we are also all unique in the gifts given to us to accomplish this goal. We all have different limitations and gifts, the method of accomplishing this goal isn't as important as the end result.
