From Pastor Perry

01/24/2018 Philippians 1:1-2

Philippians 1:1–2 (ESV)

Greeting

Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,

To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Paul wrote this letter to the Christians in Philippi around A.D. 60.  Not only the saints, but the pastors and deacons.  The Lutheran Study Bible adds: “Paul introduces his Letter to the Christians in Philippi with descriptions of who they are and what that will mean in their lives. As a servant of Christ Jesus, Paul takes great pains to be faithful to the ministry entrusted to him. Paul means to encourage every reader by describing us as saints and by announcing that the words of the Letter to follow, which are inspired by the Holy Spirit, will bring grace and peace to us.

 

I pray: Thank You, God, for making us Your saints and for providing Your Word of grace and peace to sustain us. Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
