Teaching People the Word of God
Press On Now and Forever(Philippians 1:1-11)Pastor Blake Wilson, December 6, 2017
Part of the Press On: Joy & Pain series, preached at a Wednesday Evening service
For the Emmaus Experience with our Pastor, Blake Wilson : our Wednesday bible study we continue in the book of Philippians As a Christian, life will bring you painful/difficult situations but don't let those situations steal your joy. You shouldn't focus so much on what you are going through to the point where it paralyzes you. Jesus can/will mobilize you in a difficult situation to be a blessing for someone else.

1:1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,
To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons:
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. 8 For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
