Serve the Lord with Gladness 喜びをもって神様に仕える
Psalm 100:2 詩篇100:2
(Psalm 100:2) Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
(詩篇100:2) 喜びをもって主に仕えよ。喜び歌いつつ御前に来たれ。
-Paul writing from filthy prison. Yet he is praying for Philippians blessing
(Philippians 1:9 NHEB) This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment;
-still, more まだ、もっと
-more and more もっと、もっと
-More and more what? … abound! もっと、もっと何?・・・豊かに!
-perception – able to see levels, depths, 3D picture. 知覚-異なるレベルや深さ、3Dのイメージが見える。
-discernment which “cuts through” hazy moral values to really “size things up
識別する- かすんだ道徳価値を「切り開き」、本当のものを判断すること
Q: Why does great love lead to great perception? And why is this important?
A: Live for God with influence and destiny. —> (v.10) 影響力と使命を持って、神様のために生きるため! -> (10節)
(Philippians 1:10 NEHB) so that you may approve the things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense to the day of Christ;
-to put to the test in order to succeed. 成功するために、試練に合う。
-excellence –  to take all the way through (i.e. to the end), excellence.
 エクセレンス – (最後まで)責任をもち続ける、優れたもの。
-pure- shining like the sun’s rays  – i.e. with spiritual vision ピュア- 太陽光のように輝く – 霊的なビジョンで。
-free from hurt, not offending and not causing offence. 傷から自由、傷つけず、攻撃を発しない。
(Philippians 1:11 NEHB) being filled with the fruit of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
-having been filled – it’s a done deal 満たされている – もうすでに完了している
-fruit of righteousness. It’s all Jesus! 義の実 –全てはイエス!
(Galatians 5) love, joy, peace, able to cope with difficulty. (ガラテヤ5章)愛、喜び、平安、困難と向き合う力。
eg. 1 – Paul in prison (yet writing books for us 2,000 years later)
例) 1- 牢獄の中にいるパウロ(でも2000年後の私たちのために書物を書いている)
(Philippians 1:12) Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel.
eg. 2 – Joseph in prison (yet able to be an example for us 3,500 years later)
例) 1- 牢獄の中にいるヨセフ(でも、3500年後の私たちのために模範となっている)
(Genesis 50:20) You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

So love … to able to see the big picture in every situation.
So love … to be filled with good things – in the hard times – ready for the future.
