Wesley's Notes for Philippians 1:4


1:4 With joy - After the epistle to the Ephesians, wherein love reigns, follows this, wherein there is perpetual mention of joy. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy. And joy peculiarly enlivens prayer. The sum of the whole epistle is, I rejoice. Rejoice ye.

Discussion for Philippians 1

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Concerning this Sabbath: shall the woman, the fatherless and the widow be condemned for their work if GOD giveth their sleep? Nay. For GOD gave nor sent his Son to condemn the world but to save the world: in which, as in the days of Noah, the like figure of eight souls remain. Therefore to him that knows to do good, and does IT not, to him it is sin. For the Son of man IS Lord even of the Sabbath.

    I am looking for the verse that says rejoicing in the lord defeats Satan.
  • Adam
    Philippians is my favorite book of the Bible. Dense with spiritual nourishment.
  • Vanessa
    Walk in Christ be bold for the word and never be ashamed for it. If we speak the gospel in truth not make anything up , most suffer for it even today we are called crazy. I feel sorry for them, they are going to miss the joy of meeting our creator. This is the oldest written history and yet they wont teach it or read it God bless them and God Bless you all, walk in faith, trust in God always
  • Shajin Hashemi
    I know why I suffer now. I agree. Suffer for the Lord!!!
  • Oscar Kaubi
    I compare the passage to Joshua 24
    where Joshua calls on all the people to pledge commitment to God
