From Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus. To God's people in the city of Philippi and their bishops and deacons -- to everyone who is united with Christ Jesus.
Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours!
I thank my God for all the memories I have of you.
Every time I pray for all of you, I do it with joy.
I can do this because of the partnership we've had with you in the Good News from the first day [you believed] until now.
I'm convinced that God, who began this good work in you, will carry it through to completion on the day of Christ Jesus.
