Solidarity in the Savior

As Paul concludes his letter to the Philippians he returns to the theme of partnership filling out a beautiful vision for believers one last time.


Paul continues to strive with the Philippians and with us to pursue true unity within the fellowship of believers as something of paramount importance for the broader community and to be nurtured within individual believers.

Tearfully Mature

No Illusion

Knowing Christ surpasses everything else in this life.

Humility for the Sake of Others

Paul continues to exhort the Philippian church to live a life of love and good deeds. This is first for one another, but also for the watching world that desperately needs the hope of Jesus Christ.

The Mind of Christ

In a perfect distillation of the Gospel we see that Christ's emptying of himself and subsequent filling is the source of our own fullness and the model for our life.

A Singular Focus

Though on trial for his life, Paul models for the believer a singular Gospel focus that transcends circumstance and manifests in the world in courage and self forgetfulness.

Gospel Flourishing

Hosea 14 provides a beautiful picture of what it means to be the people of God, both for Israel and the church today.

Participating in a Story of Joy
