The Joy of Harmony

The Joy of Harmony

As Paul closes out this short letter to the Philippians, he urges the Philippians to stand firm in the Gospel, the basis for the harmony we share in the church.  Paul knew that every church is susceptible to division, which leads to discord, jealously, and selfish ambition. Division in any church takes away the joy Jesus intends for us and diminishes how attractive and inviting we are to our neighbors.
