While there are many things may do or accumulate here on earth, none of these compare to the blessing that cannot be taken away from us...our relationship with Almighty God.

Paul has some great words of encouragement to us at the end of his letter to the Philippians. Listen as pastor Jody Sledge explains Paul secret to contentment and challenges us to find it in Christ.
