How can Paul have joy while in Roman custody? | Philippians

Episode 223

When Paul writes Philippians, he's in custody in Rome. He hasn't been able to travel and preach for nearly 4 years. Yet Philippians is known as the epistle of joy. Why is that?

It has to do with what mattered most to Paul... with where he found his life and joy.

He models this for us in both the letter to the Philippians and in Acts 16 when he started the church in Philippi.
