In Paul’s Letter to the Philippians, his writing overflows with joy and thankfulness, even though he is writing from prison. Unlike his interaction with other churches, Paul had very little to correct in the Philippian congregation. He was encouraged by the believers’ concern for him and their faithfulness in living out the gospel. Paul teaches that the joy of the gospel should rule our lives, regardless of circumstances.

Philippians is about remaining steadfast in the faith and joy of the gospel. This is clear from Paul’s own response to his hardships: His imprisonment could have led him to despair, but instead he chose to give thanks, to be content, and to rely on God’s strength (1:12–19; 4:10–13). Paul advises the Philippians to take this same approach, urging them to stand firm together for the gospel (1:27–28).

Key theme: The joy of the Lord
Key verse: Philippians 3:1, “Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.”
