"But I trust in the Lord Jesus..."
Text: Philippians 2:19
A STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD
The apostle Paul maintained a strong and vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. This is evident in the way he had developed his faith in Him.
a) Paul’s conversion was so very real and precious.
b) It marked the way in which he conducted his life subsequently.
a) Paul sought to cultivate his knowledge of the Lord.
b) God in turn revealed many great and wonderful truths to him.
a) Paul communed with God in prayer.
b) Prayer was never a ritual to God; it was a refreshing time of communion every time.
SENDING OF TIMOTHY
Paul also had a strong sense of fellowship with the Philippians. This is evident as we read the epistle to the Philippians.
“But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly,
that I also may be encouraged when I know your state.”
