Rejoicing in Unexpected Times

✝We can rejoice in unexpected times✝
************************************
📖 Philippians 1:12-19

📢 Speaker: Audrey Smith

⏹Unexpected problems can advance the gospel.
Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. (phi 1:12-13)

⏹ Unexpected times bring unexpected opportunities
And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.(Phi 1:14)

⏹Unexpected trials develop unexpected strength
It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice,
(Phi 1:15‭-‬18)
🚩 Joy is the flag flown high…when the King is in residence.

⏹In unexpected times
The joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10).
