The Pattern of Christmas Suffering and Reward

Philippians: Christmas Year Round

Drew Thorwall
November 20, 2022

The Book of Philippians provides a series of vignettes, through which the Apostle Paul encourages his readers to appreciate the joy of a life well-lived. The overriding themes of his letter challenge us to find meaning in service, generosity, and contentment. In essence, Paul is telling us to live like it’s Christmas all year long. He conveys these themes through a uniquely beautiful Christmas poem, which will serve as the basis of this verse-by-verse study.
