This is our prayer: that our love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11

(We are) confident of this, that He who began a good work in us will carry it on until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6

  • If we have any encouragement from being united with Christ, any comfort from His love, any fellowship with the Spirit, any tenderness and compassion, then (let us) be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Let us do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility (let us) consider others better than ourselves. Each of us should look out not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of others. Let our attitude be the same as Christ Jesus.  Philippians 2:1-5
  • The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with our spirit.  Philippians 4:23
