Content

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:11-13

There are aspects of our walk with Christ that can sometimes be difficult to understand. On one hand, we know that the Kingdom of God is here, but it’s also not here. Christ talked about this in Luke 17:21 when He said, “The Kingdom of God is in your midst.” We are citizens of the Kingdom of God while, at the same time, being foreigners in this world.

Being content can be conceptualized with being here but not here. We are content in any situation because we know that Christ is with us in everything we are going through. The apostle Paul wrote about being content no matter what was happening. For him, this meant being content in prison, through beatings and stonings, through being whipped, hunger, cold, and isolation. In everything Paul was going through, he was content because he trusted in his Savior, Jesus Christ.

Being content oftentimes feels like not being content at the same time. We are content knowing that, no matter what happens in our lives, Jesus is close by and will never abandon us. In addition, we always strive to move forward in our recovery journeys, knowing that we cannot become complacent. We are content but not content. We have peace with whatever is happening in our lives, but we strive for sanctification, being aware that God is always at work in us. We are content and, at the same time, desire more of a life of growth and promise that comes with knowing Christ.
