Sermon Notes

As we explore Philippians, remember that Paul wrote these joyful words form prison. We will see the reason Paul could be joyful was because he could look past his circumstances-past any pain and hardship he was experiencing in that moment-and know the Gospel was advancing. Hearing that Jesus Christ was being glorified and knowing other believers were standing firm in their faith filled the apostle with joy. Paul found deep joy in Christ shining in and through his life. We will also see that knowing Christ would shine through his death gave him joy as well.
