Profiles in Providence #3

Philippians - Profiles in Providence - Florida 2008

Providence of God - the watchful eye of God looking for opportunity, Mercy and Grace. Acts 16:1-40 illustrates the character of the Philippian believers in relationships. Paul prays that their love of Christ may abound even more (Phi 1:9). It's a gift to receive suffering from God (Phi 1:29). Paul had restrictions, barriers, and hinderances, yet he rejoiced; now the Philippians did too (Phi 1:30) "Let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ" (Phi 1:27, 1Pe 1:6-7). Enemies of the gospel is proof of thier judgement (Phi 1:28), but proof also of our deliverance. Paul requests that the Philippians "fulfill my joy ... being of the same mind,... love and of one accord. " (Phi 2:1-2).

Philippians 1:12 starts out "Now I want you to know brethren that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the Gospel". It's a key verse in the letter Paul wrote to those faithful believers while he was in chains.
