A Joyful Endurance
July 9, 2017
Paul brings this letter to a close by addressing the area of support and provision. From the text we learn the church in Philippi had previously partnered with Paul in his ministry financially. He thanks them for their renewed interest but takes the opportunity to show them the true source of provision. In the good times and the bad, in “abundance and need,” Paul is able to declare “I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (v. 13).
