Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen. Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you. All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. [NASB1995®]
In the midst of his captivity, Paul has shown us that our security, confidence, and joy come from Christ. The apostle overflows, in this letter, with gratitude, joy, and love towards the church in Philippi, who have aided him in his necessity, and he bids them farewell with a message filled with affection.
A small note: Paul mentions the brethren in Caesar’s household, telling us that even in the imperial palace, the light of the Gospel had arrived and there were faithful Christians there.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all of us today, so the message of the epistle to the Philippians may encourage our lives as well.
“Rejoice in the Lord always,” he tells us. There is no circumstance that can change this truth: we are HIS.
Thus we conclude our study of this letter, giving thanks to the Lord for His Word. God bless you!
