Philippians 1:14-30

Et teneo, et teneor    I both hold and am held

Php 1:12  But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;

Php 1:13  So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;

  1. how would you like to be chained to me for four hours?
  2. we

Confident or contentious

Php 1:14  And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident (G3982

πείθω

pi'-tho

A primary verb; to convince (by argument, true or false); by analogy to pacify or conciliate (by other fair means); reflexively or passively to assent (to evidence or authority), to rely (by inward certainty): - agree, assure, believe, have confidence, be (wax) content, make friend, obey, persuade, trust, yield.)

by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Php 1:15  Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:

We see Billy Graham and think “I can’t do that” we can’t it will take 1,000 of us to fill his shoes how about if we start with 100 today he has been imprisoned by age how about it?

Successful suffering breeds confidence

Php 1:16  The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

Php 1:17  But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.

Php 1:18  What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

Php 1:19  For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Php 1:20  According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

Php 1:21  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Php 1:22  But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

Php 1:23  For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

Php 1:24  Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

Php 1:25  And having this confidence,

I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

I am here for a reason praise God

Php 1:26  That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

Php 1:28  And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

Php 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Php 1:30  Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
