From the Bible this week: Philippians 1

Church as of late has been really encouraging. This week was the last week from one of our ministers (who is moving on to a new church). He spoke on Philippians 1, and specifically on being spurred on by other Christians faith, as well as being partners in the gospel.

I found it great to think about the fact that all Christians need to work for God, and that everyone is a full time minister. Being a minister means serving God, and every Christian should do this. He told a story of one minister that received an order for all ministers in his area to wear full robes. So that minister sent an order for 400 robes, as he said everyone at his church was a minister.

Through serving God together, we can all benefit each other through encouraging each other in our service. In Philippians, Paul speaks of how the church was encouraged due to the fact that he was in gaol.

Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly. Philippians 1:14

I hope that Christians everywhere can work together in ministry serving God, so that he may be glorified in everything!

    It is always a good thing to challenge the commonly held perception of “ministry”. I think, in both Christian and secular culture, that we believe that very few do the work of ministry.

    Definitely a good thing to challenge
