Philippians 1:7 (Part 3)

It is right for me to feel this way
since I have you in my heart
and,
whether I am in chains or
defending and confirming the Gospel,
all of you share in God's grace with me.  
Philippians 1:7


How cool is this?  Paul states that he has the Philippians “in his heart.”   So, what could this have meant to Paul?  

To obtain this answer, I'll apply this phrase to my own life. (Remember, S.O.A.P., the Bible study method we tried out?  The "A" was for apply.)

As I think of the ones in my heart,
I realize
he may be burdened for them in trials,
he may be thankful for them at all times,
he may be filled with joy when he thinks of them,
he may be confident of their love and support.

Having someone in our heart is a big deal. 

It is right for me to feel this way
since I have you in my heart
and,
whether I am in chains or
defending and confirming the Gospel,
all of you share in God's grace with me.  
Philippians 1:7

Additionally, whether I am going through a trial,
defending and sharing my God’s Word,
or rejoicing,

I have an entire support network of
brothers and sisters in Christ
who share in God’s grace with me.

And so do you.

For that I am thankful.
For that I am joyful.

Of that I am confident!

Dear Friend, this is my truth!
