"In fact, God is a witness to me as I love you all with deep affection in Christ Jesus. And I pray that your love will abound more and more in knowledge and in all discernment, so that you may appreciate the best things, so that you will be clear and irreprehensible for the day of Christ, be filled with fruits of justice which are obtained through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God ".
Philippians 1: 8-11
With Paul's words for the Philippians, I intend to present my commitment to teaching and encouraging all believers, for whom the affection I feel in the Lord is sincere and profound. What animates me is to see the Church grow in knowledge and discernment, in order to be able to appreciate the best things, those that do not divide or destroy, but which, even if they were to demolish, are then followed by construction work, so that each believer is filled with fruits of justice. In all respects, I have only one desire in mind, to give glory and praise to God.
