In Philippians chapter 4, verses 10 through 14, Paul writes, “How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn’t have the chance to help me. Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
The last verse is a very famous one, though like many people, until I started reading the Bible I did not know where it came from or who wrote it. When I read this I think about the trials and tribulations that Paul went through in order to spread the Good News of Salvation through Christ, and how he completely gave up his previous existence to follow the commands that Christ gave him on the road to Damascus.
It is amazing to me what Paul went through for Jesus in his lifetime. He was imprisoned many times, and was caned in the temples of religious authorities on several occasions as well. Even when he was not captured and imprisoned or the victim of corporal punishment, his life was very harsh at times. He sailed all over that part of the world and was even shipwrecked on occasion.
But he never gave up what he knew was his mission in life, to bring others to know Jesus Christ and accept spiritual purification from Christ. When he interacted with Christ he felt the power and sacredness of his presence, and he could no longer deny that Jesus is the Son of God, who can cleanse and purify our souls of our transgressions if we let him. Christ wants to do this for everyone alive, and bring us to the heavenly realms upon our passing. I hope that everyone will accept the message that Jesus willingly came here and gave up his life to bring to us, and that Paul suffered much hardship to continue to carry to all who would listen.
