Daily Meeting Place
The Gospel is Preached
Today's Passage: Philippians 1:12-19
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Paul's Joy That Christ is Preached
12. And I want you to know, my dear brothers and sisters, that everything that has happened to me here has helped to spread the Good News.
13. For everyone here, including the whole palace guard, knows that I am in chains because of Christ.
14. And because of my imprisonment, most of the believers here have gained confidence and boldly speak God's message without fear.
15. It's true that some are preaching out of jealousy and rivalry. But others preach about Christ with pure motives.
16. They preach because they love me for they know I have been appointed to defend the Good News.
17. Those others do not have pure motives as they preach about Christ. They preach with selfish ambition, not sincerely, intending to make my chains more painful to me.
18. But that doesn't matter. Whether their motives are false or genuine, the message about Christ is being preached either way, so I rejoice. And I will continue to rejoice.
19. For I know that as you pray for me and the Spirit of Jesus Christ helps me, this will lead to my deliverance.
Philippians 1:12-19 NLT
