Paul opens this letters with words of encouragement and a prayer for the believers in Philippi. Another amazing passage.
The thing that jumped out at me was verse 27: Above all, you
must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner
worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you
again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together
with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which
is the Good News.
What does it mean to live as a citizen of heaven? I've always thought about heaven as a place where we will worship God all the time. hmmm... maybe a reminder that we should remember to worship God while we're on earth, day in and day out... not just on Sunday (or Saturday) at church.
Lots of good stuff coming in this book.
