PressingOn FBPhilippians: Pressing On

Much of the New Testament consists of the Apostle Paul’s letters to various churches.  These letters are often full of correction - “Stop teaching false doctrine! You're doing Communion wrong!  Stop bickering!”  Just like today, there was plenty of sin, error, and immaturity to be dealt with in most first-century churches.

The letter to the Philippians is different.  It doesn’t contain any major correction.  There are no glaring issues that Paul wants to address.  It seems that the church at Philippi was generally a mature, functional Christian church.

But Paul doesn’t want them to rest on their laurels.  So he writes them a letter that talks frequently about progress, the advancement of the Gospel, and the ongoing process of becoming spiritually mature.  The message to the Philippians, and to all Christians is clear: Keep pushing.  Keep going forward.  Keep seeking after God.  Keep pressing on.
