Paul is reporting back to the Philippians about the progress of his ministry. They have supported Paul financially, so he is updating them on his ministry, while thanking them for their generous support. Even though Paul was in chains as a prisoner of the Roman government, the gospel was free as a bird. Significant progress was being made, the gospel was being preached and people were getting saved. The gospel is unstoppable! Even facing the possibility of execution Paul remained encouraged because of the strength he found in the gospel.
