Philippians 1:3-8

We are, in fact – a Team: a Partnership. This is what Paul is talking about in Philippians 1:3-6. Paul is writing to a church that he appreciates – he had been the church planter back during his second missionary journey – and they had continued to be part of his team ever since. He writes: “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now; being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion in the day of Christ Jesus.”
