15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
He considered the constant giving of things to him by the Philippians as an important issue. It was so crucial to his existence and ministry that he took note of the failure of other churches to respond to his needs. He reminded the Philippians that no church communicated with him concerning giving and receiving but they only.
Every minister needs the support of others to survive in ministry. The importance of receiving gifts from people is seen in Jesus’ ministry as some women followed Him and ministered to Him with their resources (Luke 8:2-3).
If we receive gifts from people to support our businesses and ministries and fail to acknowledge their partnership with us in ministry, they will stop giving to us. It is important to let people know how important they are to us. We must make constant mention of such people in our prayers and minister to them so that they can succeed in life and also continue giving to the ministry.
1. Pray for the sustenance of the people God has used to be a blessing to your life.
