Readings & other service elements »

At the end of chapter 1, Paul shifts his attention from his own situation to the Philippians'. He recognizes similarities between their struggles and his. And he encourages them to persevere "in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ." As Paul develops this idea, he points directly to Jesus. He calls us to let our faith carry us beyond simple belief into an imitation of Jesus' "descent into nothingness."
