Philippians, an Overview

If you want a shoddy type of peace, look for an easy-sounding solution. If you want God's satisfying peace, however, then prepare yourselves to be changed and to make changes.

Our troubles are not solved by a superficial peace. Superficial peace is phony peace. Because of this, God's way of creating this genuine peace is unlike the way we normally look for peace.

Let's note the seven steps to find this peace. Paul presents them in two phases.

In phase 1, “Stepping into God’s Peace,” Paul in Phillipians 4:1-7 uses five necessary qualities necessary to have the peace of God actually guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

In phase 2, “Abiding in the God of Peace,” provides specific guidelines in Philippians 4:8-9 instructing on how to live in God’s peace by our closeness with Him.

Below is a diagram of Philippians 4:1-9 which shows all seven steps to step into God's peace.
