This Sunday we will begin our new sermon series, Identity in Christ, going through the book of Philippians. We will be in Philippians Chapter 1:1-11. The mood of the segment is one of a greeting of old friends and a prayer of thankfulness for what God is doing in the church at Philippi. In verse 6 Paul says: "and I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." This is written to encourage the believers that God was not through with them yet; despite many trials and despite Paul's arrest and detention.
