Join the community and go deeper with this Bible study.

Breaking Ground

When is the last time you really celebrated something? What was the occasion, and how did you mark the event?

What effect does celebration have on the participants? What about anyone who is watching?


The Dig

First read Philippians 4:4-9 and 4:10-13.

Using your own words, how would you summarize Paul’s thoughts here?

NOW, read Philippians 1:12-17.

What situation is Paul in, and how does it impact his words in Philippians 4? (Hint: it’s in
verse 17).

How is your willingness to celebrate affected by your circumstances?

How easy is it for you to have Paul’s attitude, in other words, to celebrate regardless?


Getting Out of the Hole

God unlocks joy and gratitude as we begin to celebrate not only His gifts, but His presence in and among us.

Start looking for God’s activity in your life and in your community; celebrate it.

Continue the season of One Mission by telling someone what God is doing at E3, and inviting them to be a part of it.
