The letter to the Philippians is often referred to as the epistle of joy. As we notice the theme of joy and rejoicing (appearing 19 times in just four chapters), we might find the context of Paul’s interactions with the Philippians surprising.  For example, Paul’s visit to Philippi in Acts 16 was filled with times of rejoicing but also times of suffering. Paul was beaten, wrongfully accused and imprisoned and yet went on to write this letter while in prison, chained to a Roman soldier. More than Philippians being a letter of joy it is a letter that leads us to Jesus Christ, the Messiah, (who is spoken of more than 50 times).

With great clarity, this letter shows us how to live in a world full of suffering and yet be people characterized by hope and joy because Jesus Christ is not only our source of joy but our very Life. 

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”  Philippians 1:21
