This is one of the greatest passages that Paul wrote about Jesus Paul is pleeding with the Phillipians to live in Harmony to lay aside their discords and to shed their personal ambitions and pride and their desire for prominence and prestege and to have hearts that are humble and to have a selfless desire to serve which was the essence of Christ His final and unanswerable appeal is to point to thr example of Jesues. The Phillipians are shown the greatest possible incentive to unity and humility Christ HimselfThis passage is not just a description of Christ, but it is an example for us to follow. We are to be servents, obedient, and to put others first. If we approach church membership under the perspective of entitlement we have it upside down. you always first ask what you can do for the Church. The most litteral meaning is think of yourselves as Christ did
We need to have the same attitude as Christ. He:
Did not consider equality with God something to be used to His advantage
he emptied himself assuming the form of a slave
he emptied himself assuming the form of a slave
This passage is not just a description of Christ, but it is an example for us to follow. We are to be servents, obedient, and to put others first. If we approach church membership under the perspective of entitlement we have it upside down. you always first ask what you can do for the Church.
He Humbled Himself
He became obedient unto death
It is vital that Christians are united this all importent for thier fellowship and witness
It is a secret of the Roman’s army’s success that they fight as a single unit. They link their shields to make a wall in defence, or quickly reform into lines or wedges for attack. Will Christians be any less committed to one another than pagan soldiers?
Each of us must do the same and put aside our preferences for the cause of the Church
