But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ;
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Have you ever had bad things happen to you and you wonder what good could possibly come from all of this trouble? Paul ended up in prison, thrown in jail, beaten, shipwrecked, taken to another city, into Rome, and then put in jail again and stayed there. But in Philippians chapter one, while in prison, he writes this, "But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the Gospel." For those who preach the Gospel, hard times come, but sometimes we find that the hard times are open doors to preach the truth. Are you looking for open doors to proclaim the Gospel? I hope you preach the Gospel and let God worry about the troubles.
