…for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, Philippians 1:5

Mentally we can make the connection as such – “I thank my God …  for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now…”

Paul is grateful for their “fellowship in the gospel.” There are many opinions on what this means.… Read the rest

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:2

After identifying himself, his calling, who was accompanying him, and who the letter is directed to, Paul now gives the standard greeting which is found in most of his epistles. It begins with “Grace to you and peace to you.”

Grace is unmerited favor which cannot be earned.… Read the rest

Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ,
