Thought for Wednesday 8th December
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.”
Philippi is now in N.E. Greece, some 10km from the coast. Gold in the area had brought much wealth. Paul, writing this letter, is in prison. Nevertheless, the words “joy” and “rejoice” occur 13 times in this short letter, in large part because they have matched their material wealth with the spiritual riches of the Gospel.
Reflection: For whom and for what can you joyfully pray today?
Welcome to the website of the Church of Scotland's International Presbytery. We're glad you're visiting. We hope you will feel part of our Christian family of faith, and know that you will find a warm welcome with us.
"Go, then, to all peoples, everywhere... you will be witnesses for me to the ends of the earth."
