Philippians 1:18

7/21/2018

"But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. "

This verse tells us that the most important thing is the Christ is preached and the motives of doing so was not as important.

This is interesting because it is very easy to get caught up in theological debates about the right and wrong ways to tell people about Christ.

Paul tells us that we are wise to spend most of our time preaching the gospel rather than discussing the correct way or the correct motives.

A few verses above this, Paul says,

"It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill." - Phil 1:15

If a church is preaching Christ out of envy of another ministry, it is not something to dwell on, because the important thing is the Christ is being preached.
