Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | What are you chained to?| Philippians 1:12-14
” I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.” -Philippians 1:12-14
Paul had plans to go to Rome and advance the Gospel, but God had a better plan for how it should spread. Paul was constantly chained to an imperial guard for two years, each of whom he had the opportunity to share Christ with. The Gospel infiltrated Caesar’s household one soul at a time and other believers were encouraged by Paul’s boldness to also share. God puts you right where you are for the purpose of glorifying His Name. What are you chained to?
