Inspirational Moment

Philippians 1:3-6, 9-11 CEV

Every time I think of you, I thank my God. And whenever I mention you in my prayers, it makes me happy. This is because you have taken part with me in spreading the good news from the first day you heard about it. God is the one who began this good work in you, and I am certain that He won’t stop before it is complete on the day that Christ Jesus returns. I pray that your love will keep on growing and that you will fully know and understand how to make the right choices…. And until that day, Jesus Christ will keep you busy doing good deeds that bring glory and praise to God.’’
