Jun 27, 2021    Alex Rule    Philippians 1:27-2:11

This Sunday we will dig deeper into the great love that the Apostle Paul had for the Church and for all the saints. In Chapter 2 of his letter to the Philippians, Paul encourages the saints of God to live in unity with peace and joy, and to live with humility as "One in Christ" in His Kingdom.
Paul’s purpose was to instruct and encourage the Church to have the mindset of Christ that brings Peace and Joy to the world. This mindset of love and humility is described as “He, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped."

We read in verses 1-2, “So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.” Paul wanted the Church (everyone) to be humble of heart and to seek God, not only for their own interests, but also for the interests of others.

God bless you today and always!
