Paul tells them to have a conduct worthy of the gospel. There is a lot of this lacking today.
There is a term in verse 27 worthy of noting which is standing fast. The devil would like to push us back or give up. Don’t do it!
The last verse in today’s reading is, “You have been granted on behalf of Christ not only to believe on Him but to suffer for His sake.” I live in a rather peaceful setting. Am I ready if suffering (persecution) comes my way?
