Philippians 4

In chapter 4 Paul begins with an exhortation to stand stand firm and live in harmony. Evidently two believers in the Philippi were at serious odds so Paul appeals for a group effort in resolving their disagreement. After this appeal, he issues some concluding exhortations in living the Christian life such as “Rejoice in the Lord always,” “Be anxious for nothing,” apply the sound doctrine learned, etc. The apostle concludes the letter by acknowledging their financial gift and gives his closing greetings.
