This past week we looked at Philippians 2 as our central text. The big idea we pulled out can be summed up by a prayer a member of our community recently prayed…
“Father, tighten our unity…and open our arms.”
You hear hints of Jesus’ high priestly prayer of John 17 as you read the Paul’s words. It’s not surprising that Matt Chandler had this to say about the Philippians 2….
“The Idea present in chapter 2 is so ever-present in the scriptures, that I would say that if you try and wring the scriptures out, it’s what would come out.”
…for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man. 2 Corinthians 8:21
We talked on Sunday about how the word honorable in the above passage comes from the Greek word “kalos” which can mean a kind of beauty that causes all those to see it to take notice. It’s the same word Jesus uses in Matthew 5:16.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works (kalos) and give glory to your Father who is in heaven….
