Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi has been challenging us to inject Christ into every area of our lives, and this week we’re called to invite Jesus into our relationships, our joy, our anxiety, and our thinking. The reminder is steadfast, we’re to be who we already are, and we accomplish that through practice, practice, practice.

Our lives truly are a Long Obedience in the Same Direction. Paul concludes his thoughts in chapter 3 with an exhortation to hang in there, stay on the road, don’t allow others to entice you to live in manner other than simple faith in Christ, and live in anticipation for God’s promise that in the end all things will be made right and whole.

The confidence of the apostle Paul is not in any way rooted in his own capacities or achievements – a great relief. Rather, his confidence for living life with an abiding sense of joy is rooted in his faith in Christ.

Paul has urged us to live a life worthy of the gospel, which is a daunting task to say the least. But we catch a glimpse of what this looks like in the lives of two Christians that Paul is sending to Philippi. In addition to that, we're reminded that gospel people send gospel people.

Following Paul’s reminder that we are the privileged people of God, and that we should have the same attitude of Christ, he reminds us that we ought to live like Christians, as God is at work in us. For Paul, it is vital that Christians in Philippi stand out as Christians in Philippi, and the same goes for us today as well.

As we continue our journey through the letter to the Philippians, the gospel functions as the lens that helps Paul see his suffering and his aspirations differently. This week, we'll ask tough questions about the meaning of our suffering, the purpose of our suffering and the hope that can be found in our suffering. We'll also take a look at what it means to put the gospel at the top of our list of aspirations.

Acts 1:12-18
