Paul’s Letter to the Philippians
The Christian travels on the narrow road through the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light. Along the way we are to share the gospel to all those whom God places in our path. It is our purpose not to force feed but to make available the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ so that men may make a choice between acceptance or rejection of faith in the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Savior of the world, the Redeemer of mankind, who by God’s grace the gift of salvation is made for them. As Christ Himself the Christian will face opposition, mockery, persecution and possibly death for the sake of Christ. So how is the Christian to live as citizens of the Kingdom of God in a non-Christian word? How is the Christian to respond to those of the world when they are hostile towards them? Paul wrote this letter to the Philippian Church to encourage the faith of the faithful Christians in Philippi as they were persecuted by those of the worldly way. In this letter of Paul’s he strengthens them in the difficulties that they were facing. This letter was written while Paul was in a Roman prison so he too was suffering for his faith in Jesus Christ. Paul wrote this letter with a joyful heart that demonstrates that a Christian can remain passionate for Christ in the worst of situations.
