"Be Joyful" is a Bible study, but it reads more like a Christian Living book or commentary on Philippians. This older version of the book has the study questions for each chapter at the back of the book, but the newer version puts them at the end of the chapter they're for.

The book was easy to read and understand, and it drew out some great points from the Bible text. Each chapter covered a chunk of Philippians that covered a similar theme, but you need to read the Scripture from your own Bible

I was amazed by Wiersbe's continual use of alliteration. He makes seeing and using what we have as Christians so easy to understand. Of course, it all began with the Apostle Paul, who wrote the book of Philippians.
In a nutshell, according to Wiersbe, we believers have:
Single mind, Phil. chapter one
Submissive mind, Phil. chapter two
Spiritual mind, Phil. chapter three
Secure mind, Phil. chapter four.
Those four S's express adoration, supplication, appreciation, and contentment.
Clara Roberts
Wiersbe says that if we have the single mind of Phillipians 1 we can give God adoration. If we come with the submissive mind of Phillipians 2 we can come with supplication. If we come with the spiritual mind of Phillipian 3 we can show appreciation. All of this gives us the secure mind of Pillipians 4. I loved this book.

Excellent study on Philippians

Wiersbe is always satisfying with his accessible commentaries.

“Submissive Mind (Phil. 2). This chapter focuses on people, and the key verse says, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better [more important] than themselves” (v. 3). In chapter 1, Paul puts Christ first. In this chapter, he puts others second. Which means he puts himself last! The reason people aggravate us so much is usually because we do not have our own way. If we go through life putting ourselves first, and others go through life putting themselves first, then at many points there are going to be terrific battles.” 0 likes
