Passage: Philippians 1:1-11

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: Give Thanks

Category: New Testament



Paul begins the letter outlining the ever-present gifts of God for which we can always be grateful. No matter what is happening in your life, no matter how dark the present condition may be, you can always, always give thanks for the grace of God.
GRACE = God’s Rewards At Christ’s Expense. God has poured out his grace over you. Give thanks.


Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians from a prison cell, and yet we often refer to it as Paul’s letter of joy. How can that match up? It comes down to gratitude. It is one of the most reliable emotion adaptors—when we give thanks, we feel better. The more we learn to give thanks in all circumstances, the more we experience joy in the Lord.
