rejoice and stand firm

The letter to the Philippians is a beautiful exhortation– expressing joyful thanksgiving for what God has done and encouraging the church to rejoice and stand firm, contending in unity for the faith with one another. Paul and Timothy write to the church at Philippi for their edification, challenging them to walk according to their calling in Christ, pursue Christlike humility, and remain faithful as they await the return of their Savior.
