The philippian church is a great New Testament model church, which we can look to as a wonderful example of a chruch, which partnered with the Apostles – a church which engendered joy in all circumstances. Joy and rejoicing are a constant theme. A church defined by Paul as “for you are all partakers with me of grace, in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel”.
Paul’s language is rich in commending the heart of this apostolic church as he declares over them that they are partners, and partakers – “you served with me, laboured side by side, striving side by side, in partnership with me in giving”. What a recomendation.
Let us join in together as we look forward to emulate this wonderful church.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father & the Lord Jesus Christ (Phillipians 1:2)
