Take 5 Bible studies are made for busy people who want to dive right in to Scripture. Get your Bible journal and pencil and let’s do Take 5: Grace and Peace. Please read the scripture below.
1 Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, 5 in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. Philippians 1: 1-5
How does Paul describe himself and Timothy in verse 1?
In the original Greek, the word bond-servant transliterates as doulos, which means one who gives up his will for the will of another.
What two things does Paul say come from God and Jesus?
Grace and peace only come from God and Jesus. God gives us grace through Jesus so we can be at peace with Him.
What does Paul do in verse 3?
What does Paul do for the Philippians in verse 4?
He prays for the Philippians. The word used for pray is deesis, which means a seeking or an asking. Deesis comes from the root word deo which means to bind or fasten. Prayer literally binds us together.
