We are back to the topic we were treating last time, that is, Gaining Higher Spiritual Ground. And we took our text from Philippians That was a long reading, but for today, we want to make it shorter. To refresh our memory, let us read from verse Thank You, father, for today, especially for this hour when we are reasoning with one another and with You in Your Word.

We saw last time, in our text, especially the segment that we read today; there Paul shows his intolerance of status quo Christianity. He was dissatisfied with which he worshiped Sunday only pure warming Christianity. We saw that Paul wanted more. He wanted to know the fullness of the life of Christ in his life.
Gaining higher spiritual ground – Part 2
Dilday, June 13, It is especially courageous in light of the context of the times in which it was delivered. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
