2:1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2: then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
2:1-5 Many people—even Christians—live only to make a good impression on others or to please themselves. But “selfish ambition or vain conceit” brings discord. Paul therefore stressed spiritual unity, asking the Philippians to love one another and to be one in spirit and purpose. When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Christ’s example of putting others first, and we experience unity. Don’t be so concerned about making a good impression or meeting your own needs that you strain relationships in God’s family. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure your walk is in the mind and spirit of JESUS CHRIST.
