DAY 183: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today we conclude the book of Philippians, with the Apostle Paul exhorting the people of the church at Philippi to forsake their petty disagreements, seeking contentment where they found agreement.
Ask God for His understanding of Philippians 3-4. Read Philippians 3-4. Let’s journey!
This letter the church at Philippi was written by the Apostle Paul, during one of his times of imprisonment. Philippi was the first church founded by Paul in eastern Europe and was a Roman colony. The church at Philippi faced suffering and persecution for their beliefs, however, they remained faithful to the Lord, and upon hearing of Paul’s imprisonment, sent one of their members to Paul, with an offering. This letter is Paul’s response to their generosity, faithfulness, and caring.
Philippians 3-4: The Apostle Paul exhorts the people of the church of Philippi to abandon the ways of the flesh by adopting a life dedicated Jesus. (Philippians 3:1-4:23)
After concluding today’s reading, consider the following: What is Paul’s message in today’s reading? How can that message be applied to you in your life?
