Philippians 4:10-13 ~ God’s Will for Every Believer in Every Situation Part 5

The word content in Greek means to be self-contained, not self-sufficient but self-contained. Paul realized that everything he needed for life resided within, where Christ dwelt. He had no need of anything outside of himself. He is equally content in every circumstance; for he has learned the mystery of contentment. Furthermore, He tells us we must be initiated; we must go through the school of learning if we are to have the mysteries of contentment worked out in our lives.
