The Apostle Paul has been beaten, abused, shipwrecked, and snake-bitten. After narrowly escaping an assassination attempt, he is falsely accused as an enemy of the empire and arrested. Under the watchful eye of a Roman guard, Paul awaits a trial with Caesar who may sentence him to death. Yet despite their best efforts, Rome’s rulers cannot silence Paul. He bravely puts pen to parchment and writes to the Christians in Philippi who were facing their own set of problems.
Written under such dire circumstances, we might expect a letter full of complaints or cries for help. Instead, Paul’s letter to the Philippians has been inspiring Christians around the world for thousands of years. Rejoice. Press on. Shine like stars. Thank God. Again, I say, rejoice.
