5 Tough Times If Paul had never been jailed we would be missing a major portion of the new testament.

6 Philippians 4 : …I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, I know what it is to have plenty.

As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.” “Now I want you to know, brothers that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel.

9 Philippians 1 : “It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.” “It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.
