Philippians 1:6 “…he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Philippians 1:27 “…let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ:…”
Philippians 2:3-4 “…let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”
Philippians 2:12-13 “…work out your own salvation…it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
Philippians 3:9-12 “…If by any means I might attain…Not as though I had already attained…”
I think Paul is giving a general, overview look of our salvation and redemption. How it happens, what it takes for our salvation. From the point of our conversion/new life until God makes us complete in Him, free from our sin nature and all from the old life. He says, this is how it’s done, and this is what I’ve done and am doing. Haven’t made it to the end yet, but I press on, “that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.” Perfection in Him.
Philippians 3:19 “Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”
NOTE: Most of the content of the last few posts has been scripture. It would be easy to try to add to it to lengthen the posts, but I wanted to avoid the temptation and stick with the premise of the writing. I include the scriptures, even if they are the only things written, so the Word is there. God brought the verses to mind as I was studying the chapter, even if He didn’t give me other thoughts to go with them. Perhaps He wants to do the same with you.
