We learn two more principles of spiritual stability. The first principle is having gentleness, even in the midst of hostility. Nothing can be more unsettling then harsh words or actions against us.

In turn, he will barricade our hearts with his peace.

Stability. It is a necessary prerequisite for growth in the Christian life. Unfortunately, Chistians often struggle with establishing stability, thus remaining mired in a cycle of crisis and setbacks.

Second, joy allows the beleiver to delight properly in God and not to attach one's satisfaction in our shifting circumstances. We will look at more principles next week.

We explore how our resurrection bodies will be both similar and different to our present ones.

However, Paul makes it abundantly clear that he has not arrived at a state of spiritual perfection. Using the imagery of a runner, Paul says that hs is straining forward to the goal, the prize of knowing Christ fully.
