The Other Key To Contentment
Seventeen times in his letter to the Philippians Paul uses the word “joy” or “rejoice” to describe both the current state of his heart and his hope for his readers. He then urges them to live lives of joy regardless of their present circumstances.
May we remember God and live a life of joy.
Paul’s letter to the Philippians is a gift. Through this letter God provided the saints in first century Philippi with wisdom, perspective, encouragement, and so much more. In turn, millions of readers since have been similarly blessed, as God continues to use His Word to shape and to embolden His saints toward His ultimate aim, which is to bring glory to Himself.
