Philippians 1:6-30 (KJV)
[6] Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

[7] Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because
I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence
and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.

[8] For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all
in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

[9] And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more
in knowledge and in all judgment;

[10] That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may
be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.

[11] Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are
by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

[12] But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things
which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the
furtherance of the gospel;

[13] So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace,
and in all other places;

[14] And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by
my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

[15] Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife;
and some also of good will:

[16] The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely,
supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

[17] But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the
defence of the gospel.

[18] What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence,
or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice,
yea, and will rejoice.

[19] For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through
your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

[20] According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that
in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness,
as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body,
whether it be by life, or by death.

[21] For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

[22] But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour:
yet what I shall choose I wot not.

[23] For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart,
and to be with Christ; which is far better:

[24] Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

[25] And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide
and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

[26] That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ
for me by my coming to you again.

[27] Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel
of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent,
I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit,
with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

[28] And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to
them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation,
and that of God.

[29] For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only
to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

[30] Having the same conflict which ye saw in me,
and now hear to be in me.

May God bless you immeasurably!
