Acts 16:6-15, Philippians 1:3-11
Audio only

What is the first question we ask when reading Scripture? 

“What did this mean to the original audience?” 

Who: Paul is writing from prison.

Where: City of Philppi

When : AD 62

Why: “Joy” to encourage their faith.

1. Paul “shows” his Joy and faith to the Philippians 

       God is never going to give up on you! 

2. Paul prayer “shows” the direction of this joy

  • that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight 
  • that you may be able to discern what is best
  • that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ
  • that you filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ
  • to the glory and praise of God.
