Active participation in mission
…because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. Philippians 1:5
Paul the Apostle knew the power of team when it came to mission. He referred to the Philippian church as being partners in the gospel. Their partnership with Paul came in the form of warm fellowship, prayer support and they also helped to meet Paul’s physical needs while he was in prison. Mission is so much more effective when it is not just “me”, but “we” at work with God to fulfill the Great Commission.
