Philippians 2:5-11

Jennifer T. Kaalund,  Professor of Religious Studies at Iona College sets a perfect contextual foundation for us as we read the apostle Paul encouragement to the believers in Philippi, She says that believers, all through the new testament, are encouraged to be imitators of God, to be like Jesus.  To walk, love, and forgive like Jesus, to be kind to one another like Jesus. 

’In Philippians 2:5-11 Paul encourages us to have the same mind as Christ. The Greek here can also be translated as thinking. So, it can be understood as a directive for us to think as Jesus thought.’

Jennifer T. Kaalund

As you read, take note of the special words such as humility, obedience, and form.

Have a great day and I hope to see you tonight and this coming Sunday!
