Today is our last day of the Philippians series, and wow I can’t get over how much we’ve learned together. There is no greater way to learn a subject than to go through it in-depth and then write about it.
Philippians has taught me so many new things, it has also confirmed so many old principles. Thank you for following this path with me! I hope you have enjoyed each verse and felt like you walked away with a new tool of learning in your hands. Today, I’d like to point out a few things in the last few phrases of Philippians.
“Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Salute (receive joyfully, acknowledge) every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you. All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.” Philippians 4: 20-22
He says “All saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.” This tells me that some of the people in authority and close to Caesar were believers too. Sometimes it’s easy to allow the nature of politics to divide us. But I wanted to point this out because there are people in politics and high up in government trying very hard to live for God. We must not ignore them, despise them or pigeon-hole them. They are believers, searching just like you and I. Pray for them. God knows who they are and what they are doing with their life. He can help you pray for them the right way at the right time. You might be surprised by who they are, you might not. All I know, is with politics our country divides into polarized sections of believing. Frankly, we all need as much prayer as we can get.
With that I’ll close out this series on the last verse.
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” vs 23
God Bless You Today!
