IntroIntroIntroIntro thingthingthingthing::::
Got up this morning ready to spend time in the Word and had an idea. Why not bring all thedevotions I have completed on Philippians into one place? So here it is, an experiment, somethingnew for me. Now this is no technical commentary, but a record of my journey in Philippians and somaybe you could call it an auto biographical commentary of sorts. I have decided to make itavailable for free on Scripd so that you can read it online or download it. So feel free to leave acomment, let me know what you think of my idea. May God work through my journey into your life.God bless ya!Mark Brownhttp://www.facebook.com/markbrown.page http://twitter.com/RevMarkB PS if you want to follow my ongoing journey check out:

Paul travelled to the city in 49 or 50 AD, on his second missionary journey. With him onthe journey were Silas, Timotheus, and Luke. And he made the big journey as God told him to. As itsays in Acts 16:9-10.During the night, Paul had a vision of someone from Macedonia who was standing there and beggingDuring the night, Paul had a vision of someone from Macedonia who was standing there and beggingDuring the night, Paul had a vision of someone from Macedonia who was standing there and beggingDuring the night, Paul had a vision of someone from Macedonia who was standing there and begginghim, “Come over to Macedonia anhim, “Come over to Macedonia anhim, “Come over to Macedonia anhim, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!”d help us!”d help us!”d help us!”

After giving her life to Christ andalong with her family being baptised, Paul started a church with Lydia in her home. As it records inActs 16: 11-15
