4/24/2016: Philippians 2:1-4. Paul pleads with Christians
to have unity in the strongest way in these four verses; the way we
cultivate unity is by having the mind set of verse 4. "Let
each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the
interests of others."
We see the purest example of this through the life of Jesus; who
washed His disciples feet; and who went to The Cross. By this
Jesus was obedient to The Father (to the point of death) and we
also see Jesus' display perfect love for His neighbor in
sacrificing Himself for them. The theme or mood of the Text is
to stress the dire importance of unity within The Church and the
life of every Christian.
