I thank my God upon every remembrance of you...making request with joy (Phil. 1:3, 4)

To his dear church in Philippi in Macedonia, Paul—from prison in Rome, facing trial—"writes out of a full heart, putting down his ideas as they come to him, and personal notices, outbursts of tenderness and thanksgiving, warnings, profound reflections, are all mingled together.... He has been communing much with God, and his sense of dependence on God has been growing ever closer..." (The Interpreter's Bible). It has been noticed that joy is mentioned more times in this one short epistle than in all the rest of Paul's writings.
