Philippians: Standing Firm
While under imprisonment awaiting his sentence, the Apostle Paul writes a letter to a church that has from its very beginning, financially supported him in proclaiming the gospel throughout the world. Paul’s close relationship with the church at Philippi is evident in how he writes to them. Yet, while he affirms his affections for them, his primary aim in writing to them is to exhort them to stand firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel (Phil. 1:27). Their contentment and their joy are not be found or lost in their immediate circumstance, but in the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus their Lord. We invite you to join us as we look together at the content of this ancient letter and find God’s timeless truth speaking a timely word to us today.
