Gospel Partnership

Philippians 1:3-8(NIV)

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

It is important as parents to raise our children so that they could have great friendships.  We have one son who is social and loves to be out and active, especially in sports.  He will call up friends or receive calls from friends to go out to play.  My other son considers his friends to be his food.  If he has food, he doesn’t need friends.

Paul wrote to the Church and valued his friendships.  He didn’t consider himself as the leader and the boss of the young disciples in the church that he planted.  In fact, he considered them partners and that they were all unified through the blood of Christ to complete the same mission.  That mission is to help others become believers and to help others along with themselves to complete their journey to stay faithful to God.  Paul was very powerful in his preaching, but he also needed others in his life as he knows that there is no such thing as a solo journey to heaven.
