People's Bible Notes for Philippians 1:6


Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing. So faithful have they been that he is confident that they will be faithful to the end. That he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it]. God, who sent Paul to them with the gospel, began the good work. He will sustain them by his grace. Until the day of Jesus Christ. The day they are called to his presence.

    The verse where it says that to live is serving following loving Christ
  • Mark R
    I believe the Apostle Paul is telling his readers to never retire in the faith. Always preach the Gospel in some sort of way that reflects the love of Jesus Christ. We as Christians should never put down our tools of faith that God has given to us. We should remain focus on the call that God has ordained us to have. The easy chair and house coat Christian need not apply in this letter!
