For the Record (God Is My Witness)

For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ– Philippians 1:8. God knew the heart of Paul, and when Paul said that God was his record, it is like our saying, as God is my witness; Paul’s desire was to preach and make known the Gospel to others even while in captivity. As God was Paul’s witness, God is also our witness today. The bowels of Jesus Christ represent their unity within the body of Christ. Paul was positive and hopeful that their standing with God was remaining strong even in his absence because they themselves were witnesses of Christ and Christ leads one to God.” ~LMJ~
