What Color is Dis-Stress?

Philippians 1:12-18

Have you ever faced undesirable circumstances in your life and wondered what God was doing? At some point, all of us face trials or suffering — we live in a fallen world full of fallen people. In Philippians 1, we find the Apostle Paul facing undesirable circumstances in Rome—both from the government and from fellow Christians. He had every reason, humanly speaking, to look as his circumstances and feel pity for himself, to wonder what God was doing in his life. But Paul had a spiritual “prescription” for his “glasses” that helped him see the world—and his circumstances—correctly, knowing that the world is about Christ and not about himself.

Join Pastor Marc Goodwin in Philippians as we see positive benefits of Paul’s undesirable circumstances there in Rome and are challenged to have confidence in God’s power, knowing that joy and peace that are grounded in the advance of the gospel and not in the circumstances of our lives.
