Paul’s Proposed Perspective in Philippians

7 October, 2010 § 1 Comment


Philippians 2:1-6 (NASB) 

“1Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any (A)fellowship of the Spirit, if any (B)affection and compassion,

 2(C)make my joy complete by (D)being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.

 3Do nothing from (E)selfishness or (F)empty conceit, but with humility of mind (G)regard one another as more important than yourselves;

 4(H)do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

 5(I)Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in (J)Christ Jesus,

 6who, although He (K)existed in the (L)form of God, (M)did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,”

            Christ’s attitude exemplifies exactly how he expects every human being to act. It can be simplified to the algebraic expression: God > You ≥ Me.
             How have we showed someone else that they are greater than or equal to ourselves? Just a simple on-your-way thought of the day.
