Philippians 1:12-18


The Joy of Advancing the Gospel even in Difficult Times


As difficult as it is for us to comprehend, Paul expressed joy even while in chains.  For as difficult as his prison experience was, Paul continuously expressed joy in being able to declare the gospel because of his chains.  For Paul, his life’s mission was to advance the gospel, no matter what the circumstance.  Imagine ourselves making our own unpleasant hospital stay an opportunity to create positive connections with others who share in a difficult hospital stay.  Imagine a personal struggle with an addiction as an open invitation to share good news with fellow addict.  Our personal chains may be God-given opportunities to experience the joy of advancing the gospel.
