Philippians 4:8 (MSG)
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
Today I and thank the Lord for wonderful friends who love Jesus.
From the day that I first came to know Jesus as Savior and Lord, He has brought good friends to me that love Him also and strive to do the work He has given each of us. I am praying today for my friends. I am also thankful for the friends who don’t know Jesus (yet) and pray that they will soon have the blessing of knowing Him (Jesus) personally.
Philippians 1:3-6 (MSG)
Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.
Lord most of all I thank You that You are my Lord, Savior and Friend!
