The Philippian Workout
Topic: Sermons Passage: Philippians 2:12–2:30
After the magnificent hymn to and about Christ in 2: 1-11, which highlights Jesus' humility and obedience, Paul now (logically) turns to the Philippians and encourages them to go and do likewise: be obedient to God, work out your salvation, shine as lights in the world, and be humble servants like Jesus. Paul even gives 2 additional models of servanthood in Timothy and Epaphroditus.
