Philippians 1:6-8 New Testament for Everyone (NTE)
6 Of this I’m convinced: the one who began a good work in you will thoroughly complete it by the day of King Jesus.
7 It’s right for me to think this way about all of you. You have me in your hearts, here in prison as I am, working to defend and bolster up the gospel. You are my partners in grace, all of you! 8 Yes: God can bear witness how much I’m longing for all of you with the deep love of King Jesus.
