Love Much and Love Well

posted May 21, 2017, 2:23 PM by web feat
Imagine being chained to a Roman guard and held prisoner, relying on the kindness of others to pay for your meals and basic needs. Would you feel loving and full of joy? Probably not! 

And yet, here is Paul, dictating what is described as one of his "happiest letters" to the church in Phillipi. 

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well...Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.

What was his secret? How could he know such joy in the midst of such terrible circumstances?
