1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: 2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, 5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: 7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. 8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. 12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; 13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places; 14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: 16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: 17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. 18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. 19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; 26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again. 27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

6 Sara Di Diego = "Timotheus was Paul's closest disciple, and was entrusted to do the most important deeds.  He was the "first first-century Christian bishop of Ephesus", and was originally from Lystra.Work Cited:http://www.30giorni.it/upload/articoli_immagini_interne/1083237290928.jpghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Timothy"
7 Sara Di Diego = "Philippi was a city in eastern Macedonia.  There is a city, Filippi, named after it and near its site, in modern Kavalla Greece.Work Cited:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cb/Philippi_location.jpg/220px-Philippi_location.jpghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippi#Archaeological_excavation_of_the_site"
8 Cary W = "Let us enter into this love, demonstrated in Paul's deep affection for God, Jesus and all the saints, who gives God thanks in every thought or remembrance of his brethren.  Not only giving thanks for all that God has performed in our midst, but to the completion of the work began in us...the Day of Jesus Christ...revealed in us all!"
9 Jeff Smith = "Joy is an attitude that comes from confidence in God. Hear Pastor David Hill's sermon about choosing joy."

12 Cary W = "He calls us, and once invited to be Lord, moves in us to bring forth the perfection of Christ.  His work and glory from beginning to end.  Regardless our weakness, He will complete His work in each one.  It is His promise and the seal and purpose of His Holy Spirit within us."
13 Deena E = "It's really beyond comprehension that God is not governed by time. But we are, and if we're honest this life can be a little frustrating at times. This scripture is a very encouraging reminder to endure and persevere. As long as we are still breathing, God is still at work in us and it's all good. "
14 Cary W = "Love truly is always recorded by God; even longing in all the bowels or depths of Jesus Christ!  And with this love kindled in our hearts, fragrant prayers are continually offered up that all may have an ever abounding love, knowledge and true and just judgment.All this proves things excellent, sincere and with no offense, and fills us with all the fruits of righteousness, by faith in Jesus, to the glory and praise of our Father and creator!"

16 Cary W = "Though it may be a challenge at times, we are really commissioned to prove the excellence of God in all things and relationships; it is what we are made for.  As His excellency pervades our being, we are charged with love and spiritual understanding, which then produces even more excellent things."

19 Deena E = "I L❤VE Paul's attitude here. He writes how there are some pretenious leaders and some with good intentions, but they're both preaching Jesus. He says the pretentious ones are doing so to try and harm Paul or make him jealous. But Paul says, "oh well!" as long the Gospel is being preached!"
20 Cary W = "Here we are encouraged to take all circumstances and people, and see that all will be turned to our salvation (through prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ), increasing our faith and confidence that in death or life, Christ be magnified and revealed."

25 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Paul speaks about their way of life as citizens. He means as citizens of Rome. He also means as citizens of the *kingdom of heaven. He speaks directly about their home in heaven in 3:20. To be *Roman citizens meant to obey *Roman laws. It also meant to enjoy the benefits that they gave. And they could be proud of those benefits too. In the same way, the *gospel brings *blessings but also responsibilities. The Christians’ behaviour should be of the highest standard. Paul is not yet sure whether he will be able to visit them. And he reminds them about that. His absence should make no difference. He wants to know that his appeal to them has been successful. He wants to know that they are united. And he wants to know that their *faith remains strong. They need to fight close together as *Roman soldiers did in close lines. They are fighting ‘for’ the *gospel. They are not merely defending it. They are also struggling to spread the good news about Christ."Source: http://www.easyenglish.info/bible-commentary/philippians-lbw.htm"
26 Sara Di Diego = "The original meaning of the word conversation was "the conduct of citizens who seek the credit, safety, peace, and prosperity of their city" (Henry 2).  Thus the people's conduct should reflect God's word.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/matthew-henry-concise/philippians/1.html"
