Checkup From The Neck Up

Text: Philippians 4:5-9

Introduction: Have you been guilty of bad thinking? 

Paul speaks from jail and sets the stage:

1.)  Find your joy in the Lord.  

Philippians 4:4, Nehemiah 8:10, John 15:11

2.)  Always remember God is near.  

Philippians 4:5  “..The Lord is at hand.”

3.)  Worry over nothing  

Philippians 4:6 

4.)  Bring everything to God.  

Philippians 4:6- “everything”

5.)  Be Thankful.  

Philippians 4:6 “with thanksgiving”Proverbs 23:7,

Proverbs 4:23-27Philippians 2:5 - It’s not the intuitive mind or the analytical mind 

that is of the soundest mind. The Spiritual mind supersedes all minds. 

As we grow we should grow in our thinking!

I Corinthians 13:11

Control our thoughts though obedience of Christ.     

II Corinthians 10:5

Let’s test your thoughts and have a checkup from the neck up.  Philippians 4:8
