Philippians 4:1 (NIV): Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!”

Today, we start the final chapter of Philippians. Yay! I love this chapter. There are many wonderful verses that we have the honor of studying.

In the first verse of chapter 4, it’s as if Paul is reminiscing about the believers in Philippi. As he thinks about how blessed he is to have been a part of their Christian journey, he oozes joy into this sentience.

Paul calls them his “crown.” What an interesting way to describe someone you love. Lol. What exactly is he saying here?

Knowing the history and culture of that time will bring this verse alive.
