(19-30)1-4 Here are further exhortations to Christian duties; to like-mindedness and lowly-mindedness, according to the example of the Lord Jesus. Do we thus love and obey the Son of God?12-18 We must be diligent in the use of all the means which lead to our salvation, persevering therein to the end. 23 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me. What is given in answer to prayer, should be received with great thankfulness and joy.Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710. Christ's two states, of humiliation and exaltation, are noticed. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (5-11) Diligence in the affairs of salvation, and to be examples to the world. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; 16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Naturally, that is, sincerely, and not in pretence only; with a willing heart and upright views. The children of God should differ from the sons of men. We must be severe upon our own faults, and quick in observing our own defects, but ready to make favourable allowances for others. His whole life was a life of poverty and suffering. 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Christ came to humble us, let there not be among us a spirit of pride. (12-18) The apostle's purpose of visiting Philippi. Do your duty without murmurings. 1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies. With great care, lest, with all our advantages, we should come short. 12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. Here we see such motives to self-denying love as nothing else can supply. Work out your salvation, for it is God who worketh in you. 2 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Read full chapter Philippians 2:1 in all English translations Several motives to brotherly love are mentioned. 2 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, King James Version (KJV), Philippians 2:1 in all English translations, KJV, Journal the Word Bible, Large Print, Red Letter Edition: Reflect, Journal, or Create Art Next to Your Favorite Verses, KJV Study Bible, Red Letter Edition: Second Edition, KJV, Reference Bible, Center-Column Giant Print, Red Letter Edition, Comfort Print: Holy Bible, King James Version, KJV, Word Study Bible, Red Letter Edition: 1,700 Key Words that Unlock the Meaning of the Bible, KJV, The King James Study Bible, Red Letter, Full-Color Edition: Holy Bible, King James Version, KJV, Vest Pocket New Testament & Psalms, Leathersoft, Black, Red Letter Version: Holy Bible, King James Version.
