Philippians 2:1-11


“If, then, there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any affection and mercy…” Philippians 2:1 (CSB)

       2.   IS PROVEN BY THE THEN.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord’…And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV)

The Christ-life is demonstrated through…

  • UNITY (2)

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”    John 13:35 (CSB)

  • HUMILITY (3-4)

“Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.”  Proverbs 16:18 (CSB)

“A person’s pride will humble him, but a humble spirit will gain honor.”    Proverbs 29:13 (CSB)

Jesus: The Perfect Example of Humility (5-8)

“For this reason God highly exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow—in heaven and on earth and under the earth—and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11 (CSB)

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you at the proper time.” I Peter 5:6 (CSB)
