Yesterday, we spent our time in God's Word at Philippians 1:3-11. We examined the three of the four affirmations Paul gives to the church at Philippi concerning their "fellowship (partnership) in the gospel."
In verses 3-5, there is an expression of thanksgiving.
In verse 6, there is an expression of confidence concerning God's Work in them, among them, and through them for the advancement of the gospel--deeper into the gospel blessings and greater zeal for gospel mission.
In verses 7-8, there is an expression of affection for the people at Philippi.
Lord willing, this coming Sunday, we will examine the fourth expression, an expression of petition where Paul reveals the content of his prayer for the church at Philippi.
May God continue to grant us illumination of His Word as we study together.
