Philippians 1:1-2

KJV 1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: 2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

YLT 1 Paul and Timotheus, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with overseers and ministrants; 2Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

1 This first verse could lead us to see that this letter was written to more then one what we see as today as church but they would have been one faith who may have been lead by different leaders and met at different times but they shared faith with in the Lord. The saints the overseers and the deacons, this includes all believers but puts special focus on the leadership that would have most likely read the letter first then read it to the people, it is most likely this letter was passed around till all believers in the city read or heard it.

2 Grace, this is found only truly thru Jesus. This world don’t offer true grace but thru the cross we can have it. Peace from God comes thru our relationship with Him by Jesus, this doesn’t mean being Christian will be easy and wont have troubles because that is far from true but saying that we are meant to have a peace because He is with us and taking care of it for us.
