Philippians: Chapter 4

So Long, Farewell

  • Paul starts to wrap up his charming and happy little letter with some shout-outs.
  • Euodia and Syntyche: you ladies need to start getting along. Paul's kind of big into that. He asks someone else (who's not named) to step in and help mend fences here if need be. 
  • Paul also doesn't want the Philippians to worry. Instead, they should be happy and joyful when they think of God. He'll put them at peace no matter what's going on. 
  • In fact, they should think of good things—that'll help them keep those peaceful, easy feelings coming.
  • Oh, and Paul forgot to mention: thanks for the gift, guys!
  • Seriously, Paul totally appreciates it. He's learned to go without in situations like this, but he's so touched that they thought of him and sent him some goodies in prison. Hey, everyone loves a care package. 
  • Really, the Philippians have always been like this. No other church has helped Paul out as much as them. Even when he was in Thessalonica, they supported him on more than one occasion. Sorry, other churches, but these guys in Philippi are the bomb.
  • Peace, love, and lots of greetings to everyone there! Paul out.
