A Quick Take Away: A Suffering Ministry

Philippians 1:7 “Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.”

These believers found this to be a suffering ministry, that we are to be “partakers of my grace” as seen in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. When done properly our life is to be committed or spent in two ways for the cause of Christ: #1 In the defense of the Gospel (this means we can actually explain our stance) #2 And confirmation of the Gospel (we are going out spreading the word instead of staying comfortable at home). Circumstances of life may lead to some bonds, but we should follow His will and count ourselves blessed to be thought worthy to suffer for the cause of Christ, see Acts 5:41.
