THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE PHILIPPIANS

CHAPTER 2


BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES

BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES STUDY ON BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES VERSES WITH BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES MESSAGE


          Glad to have you back again to share more Daily Bread. Letís take a look at the place called Philippi for a moment. As you know from our study of the first chapter of this letter from Paul, Philippi was in a part of Macedonia that is now the north part of Greece. The people from there (as well as from everywhere else in the world, who were not a direct descendant of Abraham) were called Gentiles or heathen, which means they were from any nation other than Israel.

          The Greeks, in those times, were believers in mythology and they had many, many different gods for different things. They worshipped idols and not only was it their ďreligionĒ but it was big business as well (Acts 19:24).

          Now, it had been somewhere between 1500 to 1600 years since the Exodus from Egypt, so itís a good guess that the Greeks knew about the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by then, and all of His wonders. It had also been about 50 years since Jesusí came to Earth, so we can assume that news of the Messiah had by then reached Macedonia also.

          Then arrives Paul. He brings the Gospel to these people and the invitation to become Christians, to abandon their lifeless gods and become one, with the One and only living God. Remember, that up until Jesus arrived, the heathen werenít accepted by God as part of His people and until Paul came along, many hadnít even heard of the New Testament or New Covenant which allowed Gentiles into God's Grace.

          So, as you can well imagine, there was a bit of an adjustment period for these people as well as in many other places; Corinth, Galatia, Thessalonica, etc. Paul had visited these cities during his sojourning and spreading the TRUTH and established the churches, revisiting some of them, but obviously he couldnít be everywhere at once and then he was imprisoned, so they were pretty much on their own ... Except for these letters. This should give you a little better idea as to how appreciated and necessary these letters were from Paul, to strengthen, admonish, and encourage the Gentiles to hold firmly to the Faith, because they had more than 4,000 years (since Creation) of a totally different doctrine working against them.

BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES LESSON WITH BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES EXPLANATION

          Philippi, from the information we get from Paulís letter, learned and accepted Christianity very readily and their love and hospitality to Paul kept them very close to his heart. They had a few challenges as youíll see in the upcoming chapters, but for the most part, they were a very promising group. In this second chapter, Paul reminds the Philippians to strive to be loving, selfless, and unified, because other churches werenít prospering in the Faith as well as they were, and they were a good example to others. He also urged them to praise and be submissive to God, even without him there in their presence to guide them. Letís continue with Paulís letter.

          If there is any comfort in Christ, if thereís any comfort of love, if thereís any fellowship of the Spirit, if any courage and mercies, make me happy and be like-minded, having the same love, being united, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife (struggle) or pride, but in humbleness of mind and let everyone think of others above themselves.

          Donít just be concerned about yourselves, but everyone should be concerned about others. Let this attitude be within you, which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form (image) of God, thought it wasnít unjust to be equal with God, but made Himself no fame, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men, and being in the flesh as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, in fact, the death on the cross.

Philippians 2:9-11
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given Him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

          Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you, but now even more in my absence, make your salvation certain with fear and trembling, for it is God that works in you to do the pleasure of His will.

          Do all things without complaining and disputing, so you may be blameless and sincere, the sons of God, without fault, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, upholding the Word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I havenít run in vain, or worked in vain.

BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES INFORMATION WITH BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE QUOTES MEANING

          Now, thatís some advice that everyone can put into practice. Put that one on your refrigerator: Do all things without complaining or disputing. Maybe a few copies are necessary, one on the trash can, and one near the kitchen sink. When itís time to take out the trash, or do the dishes, read it out loud! Itís not just a mundane job. In doing such things, youíre serving your family, your spouse or even yourself ... All of which are Godís servants. You are an example to the rest of your family. If you complain or do things with a poor attitude, they will learn it and do the same. What about your Christian family? What if they see you doing Godís service with joy and enthusiasm, wonít you be setting forth a Christ-like example? Iíll have to read the rulebook again, but Iím sure you get points for that somewhere. Paul says, If youíll be a good example, youíll make me feel like I didnít run the race for nothing.

          He continues, Yes, and if I die, with the service of your Faith to show for a sacrifice, Iím happy, and I rejoice with all of you. And for the same reason, you are happy and rejoice with me.

          But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus to you soon, so Iíll be comforted when I find out how youíre doing, because I have no one else with similar spirit, who will naturally care for your welfare, for all look out for themselves, not the things which are Jesus Christís. But you know that Timotheus has proved himself, as a son with a father, he has served me in the Gospel. So I hope to send him at once, when I find out what will happen with me. But I trust in the Lord that I, myself, will also visit soon.

          Still, I thought it was necessary to send you Epaphroditus, my friend, co-worker, and fellow soldier, but your messenger, and one who ministered to my wants. He missed you and was very troubled because you heard that he had been sick. In fact he was so sick that he was near death, but God had mercy on him and not on him only, but on me too, or I would have had sorrow upon sorrow.

          I sent him therefore, all the more anxiously, so that when you see him again, youíll be happy and I will be less sorrowful. Welcome him in the Lord with all gladness and hold him in high regard because for the work of Christ, he was near death, not regarding his own life, to do what you could not do in person since you were not with me.

          You wonít want to miss our study of chapter three as Paul gives a testimony of his life to the Philippians, so come on back soon and join in again, right here at Daily Bread!
