Bible: Philippians 1:27-30

1:27 Only conduct yourselves 1  in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ so that – whether I come and see you or whether I remain absent – I should hear that 2  you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, by contending side by side for the faith of the gospel, 3  1:28 and by not being intimidated in any way by your opponents. This is 4  a sign of their 5  destruction, but of your salvation – a sign which 6  is from God. 1:29 For it has been granted to you 7  not only to believe in Christ but also to suffer for him, 1:30 since you are encountering 8  the same conflict that you saw me face and now hear that I am facing. 9
