PAUL’S SALUTATION TO THE PHILIPPIAN CONGREGATION

PAUL’S SALUTATION TO THE PHILIPPIAN CONGREGATION

October 14, 2018

Philippians 1:1-11

Greeting

1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with theoverseers and deacons: 
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 
4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 
5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 
6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 
7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. 
8 For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 
9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 
10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 
11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 4:21-23

Final Greetings

21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. 
22 All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household. 
23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
