Philippians 1:27 ” Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ.”

The Apostle Paul was writing to the Church of Philippi from a Roman prison…a deep, dark, dank place filled with hopelessness and misery, yet he was exhorting his fellow Believers to live a life worthy of the Gospel…worthy of the calling they had received.  Jude 3 calls it contending for the faith.  Of taking the truth of the Gospel Message we’ve received and studying it, learning from it, believing in it, and finally, defending it.  When we conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel we are fulfilling our duty to stand firm against those who may attempt to alter/ or change the grace of God into some man-made Religion.  For the next verse goes on to say, “Stand firm in one Spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the Gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you.” Philippians 1:28)
