The last couple days I have been reading and re-reading Philippians 1. Yep, same chapter for three days. Sometimes it is just good to mull over a single chapter or verse for awhile.
“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” -Philp.1:9-11
“Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one, with one mind striving together together for the faith of the gospel; in no way be alarmed by your opponents-which is a sign of destruction for them, for salvation for you, and that too, from God. For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be me.” _ Philp. 1:27-30
