From September 2008 to January 2009, we studied the book of Philippians verse-by-verse. We learned from this text the joy of gospel ministry, the importance of planting our life in biblical fellowship, and having joy in spite of our circumstances. We must chain our joy to the advancement of the gospel. We observed the joy of selflessness and what it means to be child of God and a Christ-like example. Godly living leads to joyful living!
