Philippians 2:1-4 NIV
[1] Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, [2] then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. [3] Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, [4] not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Thought from inside prison – “make my joy complete” – what would you expect to be the thing that would make this prisoner’s joy complete? Maybe release? No, by the people of God being united and looking out for each other! If we are going through prison or other difficulties let’s set our heart on Jesus and his people and we may find our priorities changed and our joy being made complete!

Jesus, be the centre
Be my source, be my light
Jesus

Jesus, be the centre
Be my hope, be my song
Jesus

(Chorus)
Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in these sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus, Jesus
