Today's reading: Philippians 1:27-30
The message Paul delivers in Philippians 1:27 is such an important one. We weren't designed to do life alone. We need each other. We are at our best when we come together in unity—with one spirit and shared beliefs and values, working together to advance the message of God's free offer of salvation through Jesus.
"Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel." (vs. 27)
What does this passage show about the importance of being part of a local church body? What about having Christian friends to do life with outside of the Sunday church experience? How has being involved in a church or small group been of help to you? Tami
