“Your love must abound more and more and more if you will live a life that glorifies and honors Christ.”

Paul thanks God for what He has done in the lives of the Philippian church, but he also prays because God is not yet done with them. In his prayer for the church Paul asks God to increase their love, their wisdom, and their holiness, all for the glory of God.
