The Joy of Healing Oneself

It was while the Apostle Paul was in prison awaiting trial that he wrote the epistle to the Philippians; and that letter has been spoken of as the most tender of all his writings. Philippi is said to have been the first European town in which he made converts. He was naturally much interested in their experiences.

In his great desire for the spiritual growth of this group of students, he pointed out their need to advance in the understanding of God. For instance, in inspiring words he urged them to help themselves. "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling," he wrote, "for it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."
