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 until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:3-6
Of all the churches the apostle Paul planted during his missionary work, the church in the city of Philippi may have been the most special to him. They cared deeply for him, and they partnered with him in the advance of the gospel.
We’re in Acts 16:12-34, where we see how this church began. This church was made up of a unique collection of individuals with different backgrounds who found themselves at different points along their spiritual engagement journey.
