To read the Bible in a year, read Philippians 1 on October 5, In the year of our Lord 2017
By Don Ruhl
Do you preach? Do you teach? Why? Are you trying to hurt someone or are you trying to help someone? In the first century, those two different motives existed,
Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill… (Philippians 1.15).
Paul was happy to a certain degree, as long as either group preached Christ. If they taught error, then, of course, he would fight them. Yes, everyone should have the right motive, but if they preach the truth, let us rejoice.
- When you do mention biblical truths to others, why do you do it?
- What do you want for that person?
