There was a strong relationship between the Philippian church and the apostle Paul. In this passage, he speaks from his heart to them and reveals that the bond between them is rooted in the gospel of Jesus.

Using Paul’s five statements in this passage, he reminds the church at East Madison that God will be faithful to finish the work he has begun.
