Overview

The people in the city of Philippi who received this letter from their friend, Paul, were suffering from two of Christianity's greatest adversaries: self-sufficiency and complacency. While writing this letter from a Roman prison cell, Paul was able to provide a unique perspective on these enemies of our faith, for even as he faced horrific trials, Paul continued to encourage his brothers and sisters by declaring that his imprisonment was reason for joy. This letter also includes Paul's concerns for the church regarding spiritual and practical matters, such as unity and false teachers. He urges the believers to maintain their spiritual commitment and integrity as well as to continue to grow in Christ.
