God's Word for Monday, 7/10/17

Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.

Philippians 1:6 MSG

A good letter to the church. Or to the believers.

"Praying for you with a glad heart". How often do I find praying with a glad heart a challenge. More often slightly morose.

Rev. Paul said...

Linda, that's correct. The closest thing we have to a transcript of Paul's sermon to the lost is the book of Romans.

TB, Paul was speaking of his gratitude for the believers at Philippa. But it's a challenge we all face: faith and worry are mutually incompatible.
