Philippians 1:8 “For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.“
Paul wrote a quick snapshot of his true feelings for every Christian here with these word “how greatly I long after you all”. True fellowship with other believers will be reflected when our desire also matches up with Paul. With this statement he showed that he wanted:
1. To see them again, 2:24.
2. To see their groweth, 2:19.
3. To thank them personally for what they sent, 2:25.
4. That he wanted them to receive the deepest, richest, widest, blessings possibly, 1:9.
