Philippians 4:21-23 (JDV)
Philippians 4:21 Greet every devotee in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send you greetings.
Philippians 4:22 All the devotees send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar’s household.
Philippians 4:23 The favor of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your breath.
Paul concludes his letter to the congregations in Philippi with a greeting from all the devotees in the congregations where he is being detained. Whatever purpose the Adversary might have had for keeping Paul out of the way, it does not seem to be working. He is still very much connected to the work of spreading the gospel, and to the people committed to Christ.
Whatever mission God wants you to be doing, he will find a way for you to do it. If there are impediments, do not worry about them. God has a purpose for you, and you will accomplish it. Even Caesar’s army cannot keep you from winning Caesar’s household.
Lord, we trust you to use us to accomplish your purpose, no matter what.
