In our final sermon in the Cycle of Contentment mini-series and our study of Paul’s letter to the Philippians, Pastor Sonny concludes by discussing how the Apostle’s motivation for ministry was not for financial gain, but rather seeking the fruit of the church’s growth, beginning the cycle of contentment all over again.
17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. 18 I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. 22 All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household.
23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
