The Furtherance of the Gospel

“But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;” Philippians 1:12

The Apostle Paul did not have Facebook or Twitter or any of the other social media outlets that we currently have but I believe that, if he had, he would have utilized them. I say that because Paul enjoyed communicating with the churches he had helped establish which we can see through the letters that God has preserved for us in the Bible. One of the reasons Paul wrote this letter to the church in Philippi was to let them know of his condition and situation in Rome.

“But I would ye should understand, brethren,…” (Philippians 1:12)

But, in spite of his condition, Paul was a prisoner in Rome knowing quite possibly that his life on earth would soon be over, there was one thing that he had on his mind – the Gospel!
