“Our spiritual growth stops when our fear overcomes our courage.”

What does a life worthy of the gospel look like? In this passage Paul explains to the Philippians that a life worthy of the gospel is a life of courage. Through the power of the gospel Christians can overcome even the most difficult of circumstances. Through the hope of the gospel Christians can endure through trials and tribulations. Through the example of the gospel Christians can fix their eyes on what truly matters, and be free from fear that paralyzes us.
