Philippians 2:1-11 The Submission of Christ

By Paul Miller

If you’ve ever attended any church — or any religious service of any tradition — you’ve heard that God wants us to be good people. And we should! Paul reminds us in this passage that we should strive for unity in the church through humility, by serving one another, and by looking out for each other. But did you know that Christianity is the only religion that doesn’t just tell you to be good, but enables you to be good too? Through the example of Christ and the Spirit of Christ, we see and we live his submission to his Father and his stance of service towards His people.
