Plum Creek Christian Church
Even in the midst of severe persecution the Apostle Paul did not lose his joy. He knew that God would use his trials for good. While in prison Paul continued to write letters to encourage the believers. This letter is recorded as follows in Philippians 1:12-14.
"Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the Word of God more courageously and fearlessly." Ê
Paul continued to spread the good news of Jesus Christ even while chained to a guard. And his faith caused many to spread the word without fear. All of us as Christians have the opportunity daily to spread the joy and share the truth of Jesus. Visit with us this Sunday as we continue our series on Unstoppable Joy.
