Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 1:29

_ _ For — rather, a proof that this is an evident token from God of your salvation, “Because,” etc.

_ _ it is givenGreek, “it has been granted as a favor,” or “gift of grace.” Faith is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8), not wrought in the soul by the will of man, but by the Holy Ghost (John 1:12, John 1:13).

_ _ believe on him — “To believe Him,” would merely mean to believe He speaks the truth. “To believe on Him,” is to believe in, and trust through, Him to obtain eternal salvation. Suffering for Christ is not only not a mark of God’s anger, but a gift of His grace.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 1:27-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 1:29

For to you it is given — As a special token of God's love, and of your being in the way of salvation.

(10) He proves his statement that persecution is a token of our salvation, because it is a gift of God to suffer for Christ, which gift he bestows upon his own, as he does the gift of faith.
