A Quick Take Away: Prison, Palace, Places

Philippians 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places”

Paul didn’t live ‘under the circumstances’ but rather ‘in the circumstances’. Whether he was in chains in prison or in “the palace”. The palace includes the entire area that was occupied by the roman guard responsible for keeping Paul a prisoner. Where ever those men went they talked about that prisoner Paul and his beliefs. We may be hindered by the conditions that surround us but there is always some opening for our testimony somewhere to be found. Remember the church grows through suffering more so than contentment.
