Can your pastor say this about you?
"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you." (Philippians 1:3)
I am studying the book of Philippians, and while reading and re-reading it this verse really 'grabbed' me. Paul, right after his initial introduction, wrote about how thankful he was upon every remembrance of the Philippian church. I know that Paul was not the pastor of this church (he salutes the pastors and deacons in verse 1). But he is an apostle and an evangelist (missionary). He thanks God upon remembering them. They had such a faith and a testimony that God's man would be so thankful just remembering them.
I know I would like to have the kind of testimony that brings joy to my pastor. I AM NOT advocating man-worship, far from it. I just want to leave you with a question...
Do you have that kind of a testimony that when God's man thinks about you, he can't help but say "Thank you, Lord for - -?" Do you?
