Philippians 1:3-6

Psalm 113

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

  1. The church can take from this passage an example of supporting people in ministry… we can follow this example by giving to missions and praying for ministries and missionaries.

  2. i pray with Joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day till now. Reading this I think about my position as a Pastor how their are times that I spend on my knees Crying out to God for help in the ministry and the tears I shed for the students who are not involved, who are toying with their faith or just being lazy…But we see Paul here is praying with Joy and thankfulness because these Guys have it all together, they are working the vineyard, they have established the idea of fellowship and ministry. He recognizes that this church has it going on and that it will complete what it will start. (you may hear this again, its in my sermon for sunday)….

    In my earlier statement I mentioned how I cry out to God and shed tears over teenagers and I do, but I also wanted to mention that I do have those that bring great joy to my prayer time and how thankful I am that they are in my life…People like Rick, Esther and Sara. I also thank God constantly for the fellowship I have established with other Youth Pastors (Rob, Urshel and Ryan).
