It was not the first time that he had been imprisoned. One would think that this would be a time of great discourage- ment for Paul since his great desire and love was in teaching others about Christ, but now it seems that those efforts have been stopped. It would seem that the progress of the gospel was being hindered. But Paul would strongly disagree with this. Paul would say, “Not so!” Apparently the church at Philippi had written to Paul inquiring as to his welfare. And in his response Paul says that what had happened, had happened to the furtherance of the gospel. Paul is still able to preach the gospel. Now he is able to teach the gospel to those of the Praetorian Guard. The Praetorian Guard was the emperor’s army gar- rison or body guard in Rome. When Paul said that his imprisonment had actually resulted in the furtherance of the gospel, what did he mean? This word, “furtherance” means “a striking forward; progress.” Originally the word was used of a pioneer cutting his way through brushwood; to cut down in advance.” For example it was used of removing barriers which would hinder the progress of an army. It was used for cutting away the trees and the undergrowth. Paul’s imprisonment had been an encourage- ment to the brethren. It had helped to clear away that which would hinder the progress of the gospel. How could that have happened? The brethren took courage from Paul’s example. There’s no way of estimating the power of a good example. These brethren saw that God was not defeated. God used this as an opportunity to use Paul to teach the elite of the Roman army. The brethren at Philippi were drawn out of their timidity and were embolden to teach the gospel as fearlessly as had Paul. So many times the leadership of one person to faithful- ness influences others to faithfulness. I remember reading a story of an atheist addressing a crowd and spewing out his hatred of religion and the belief in a Superior Being and challenging anyone who believed in such foolishness to defend their beliefs. At first none dared to say anything. They all seemed to be too afraid. Then two young girls stood up toward the back and began singing, “Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross. Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss.” Gradually others, all over the auditorium, began to rise and join in the singing. Soon all were standing and sing- ing together until the atheist gave up and walked off the stage. Gospel Meeting July 29-August 1 Andrew Phillips Andrew grew up in the Memphis, TN area, where he graduated High School from Harding Acad- emy. He attended Freed- Hardeman University, and he has received an M.A. from Harding School of Theology. He is cur- rently enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at Harding. Before coming to Graymere, he served as Education Minister for the Mount Juliet Church of Christ in Mount Juliet, TN, and then he preached for the Crittenden Drive Church of Christ in Russellville, KY. He and his wife Kathryn, a native of Lebanon, TN, have two sons: Luke and Micah. Kathryn taught elementary school for Goodpasture Christian School while in the Nashville area. Andrew began working with the Graymere Church of Christ in June of 2011, and he and Kathryn feel tremendously blessed to be part of this congregation!
