Philippians 4:20 Meaning and Commentary

Philippians 4:20

Now unto God and our Father
To God, who is our Father in Christ,

[be] glory for ever and ever, Amen;
for all the grace he gives now, and for all the glory and happiness expected hereafter; for the supply of every want both temporal and spiritual; seeing every good gift comes from him, and is to be ascribed to his free grace and favour, and not to any deserts of men: and particularly he may mean for what they had sent him, and he had received from them.
