A Fulfilled Suffering: Conflict

So far in our journey through Philippians, the apostle Paul has introduced himself and shared his gratefulness to the Philippians as they have prayed and supported him during his imprisonment for the gospel. Last week we saw how Paul was counting on the prayers of the saints and the power of the Holy Spirit to get him through his ordeal, either by life or by death. But now our letter makes a huge turn. Paul stops focusing on himself and what he is going through and instead focuses on the Philippians and what they are going through.  He is going to encourage them in their suffering and call them to “stand firm in one spirit” and “strive side by side for the faith of the gospel.” Listen in this morning on this encouraging message from Pastor Paul Davis in our Fulfilled series.
