What’s Different About This Church?

April 25, 2008 Leave a comment

Henrietta Mears, in her classic work What the Bible Is All About, points out that this is Paul’s most joyful epistle.

In his other letters to specific churches, Paul has sharper and more specific criticisms. But the church at Philippi does not receive this kind of negative feedback.

What was it about this church? How did they receive Paul’s godly approval? What was different about this congregation?

Internal evidence may not be enough to answer this question. It may take most of the remaining 8 years, 7 months of my nine-year journey to puzzle out an answer to this question.

You Bring Me Joy

Jerry Falzone is one of the musicians at my home church.

His song, “You Bring Me Joy,” sums up Philippians well.

If I ever find the audio online, I’ll link to it here.
