Philippians Bible Study
Root Your Joy in Christ
While being thrown in prison may be cause for despair, for the apostle Paul it was a cause for joy. Why? Because through it all the Philippians had walked in partnership with him. Rather than feel abandoned, Paul felt supported. Rather than feel useless, Paul redeemed the opportunity.
Through their financial gift, the Philippians participated in Paul’s ministry and shared in his imprisonment. And for that, Paul and the Philippians had reason to rejoice. As you study Philippians, you too will learn of the joy of partnership for the sake of the gospel.
