Philippians 1:1-5 (JDV)

Philippians 1:1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus: To all the devotees in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and assistants.
Philippians 1:2 Favor to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:3 I give thanks to my God every time someone mentions you,
Philippians 1:4 always praying joyfully for all of you in my every prayer,
Philippians 1:5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.

partnership in the gospel

Paul and Timothy were writing a missionary newsletter to their supporting congregations in Philippi. Paul begins their newsletter with prayer that God would continue to favor those believers and give them peace, and he thanks God every time someone mentions these dear people. Why? Because they are supporting the work of spreading the gospel through his missionary team.

By supporting missionaries, believers are partnering in their mission. Without those who go, people will not hear the gospel. Without those who send and support, missionaries cannot go.

Lord, thank you for all the sending congregations who partner with missionaries in the gospel.
