Philippians 1:3-11 "I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God's grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God."
Reflection. Re-read the passage and let the Holy Spirit lift a phrase, a sentence or even a single word to the fore. Please write it down and then spend some time dwelling on it. Ask these questions, perhaps:
Why this piece?
What is this saying to me?
Whom might I share this God moment with?
"I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ."
Prayer Lord Jesus, by the gracious gift of the Holy Spirit, please speak to my heart and mind this day. For your glory. Amen.
