In Philippians 4, we see three things that Christ wants of us:
* Christ wants us to be what we ought to be. Phil. 4:11, Not
that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state
I am, to be content.” Jesus wants us to be content and satisfied
with life. And as long as we have Him in our lives, we need
nothing else. In Him we can and should be content.
* Christ wants us to do what we ought to do. Phil. 4:13, “I can
do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” We can do
anything that is within God’s will for our life. There are many
things we ought to do that involve praising Him and promoting
His cause. In Him we should have the motivation to love and
* Christ wants us to have what we ought to have. Phil. 4:19,
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches
in glory by Christ Jesus.” If we be what we ought to be and do
what we ought to do, then Christ will make sure that we have
what we ought to have. If we fully trust Him, He will save us and
sustain us. What more do we need? Whatever it is, Christ will be
sure to provide that also.
Christ wants us to be what we ought to be, to do what we ought
to do, and to have what we ought to have. Christ wants us. Does
He have you – all of you?
