“Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons.”
It’s very easy when we read the epistles to skip over the opening statements as though they have no relevance to us. But we don’t want to do that. In Philippians 1:1, for instance, the apostle Paul reveals the door to a life of happiness.
This happiness, however, isn’t an emotional high from some pleasure or experience. Rather, it’s a deep-seated faith and trust in God.
