Paul, in his letter to the Philippians, makes a statement that caught my attention this morning.  He says, “Just one thing:  live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” (ch.1/v.27)

This morning, I asked my dad why that is so difficult to do.  Holiness is something that eludes me often.  I have stretches were I do great and I feel strong.  I also have times when I feel vulnerable and weak.  Later in his letter Paul encourages the Philippians and even me by saying, “For I have often told you, and now I say again with tears, that many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.  Their end is destruction; their god is their stomach; their glory is in their shame.  They are focused on earthly things, but our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (ch.3/v.18-19)
