    The final verses in Philippians 2 (19-30) could be seen as minor instructions pertaining to Paul’s companions. They give an indication of how Paul plans to send these fellow servants back to Philippi. But as we dig a bit deeper, we discover powerful descriptions that point us toward faithful service to Christ. These verses help us examine how we might serve God in the same sort of way.

    Pleasing God Alone

    Pleasing God Alone

    Paul’s desire to please God far outweighs his desire for his own comfort, status, or reputation. He challenges the church at Philippi to have the same sort of mindset. In Philippians 2:12-18, Paul urges them to work out how to please God in the midst of difficult situations. In the same way, we must consider this dynamic in our lives. Who are we trying to please?

He prompts them to reflect on the ways in which they have benefited from Christ and encourages them to model the posture of Christ. He bids them to relinquish selfish ambition and vanity in order to take on humility and an others first mindset. In doing this, the church will complete Paul’s joy.

But in Paul’s mind, deliverance does not necessarily mean an improvement in circumstances. It might be death. Paul relentless trust in God in every circumstance prompts us to consider our response to the challenges of 2020.

    Turn the Other Cheek

    Turn the Other Cheek

    Jesus’ instructions to non-retaliation are perhaps the most difficult words in the Sermon on the Mount. Our concern for justice often serves as an excuse to give people what they deserve. Yet Jesus proposes a radical, generous, forgiving posture toward those who mistreat us.
