The Unstoppable Gospel

Paul, writing from prison, wants to remind fellow Christians that though his circumstances aren’t ideal they’re being used by God as a platform to tell others about Jesus. We need to be reminded that if God wants the gospel to get to someone it will indeed get there and that circumstances are not arbitrary or purposeless; they’re used by God to unfold His plan.

Paul was living for something infinitely bigger than anything he could bring about in his life: the sovereign God of the universe was saving sinners through His Son Jesus and then commissioning them out to tell the world about this great rescue.

Scripture: Philippians 1:12-18
