Philippians 2: Who Are You?
Verse of the Day: (V15) “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;”
1. The Form Of God (V1-8)
V6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”
God through Apostle Paul commanded the Philippian Christians to worship and exalt Jesus Christ, who was willing to humble Himself by leaving the form of God in glorious heaven to become the form of a servant to live on this lowly earth. Though Jesus loved the people and ministered to them, yet He was eventually betrayed, arrested and crucified, not for His own sins, but for the sins of the whole world. However, Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection and return were already prophesied in the Old Testament. Indeed, on the third day, Jesus miraculously rose from the dead conquering death, and whosoever believes in Him shall never perish in hell but have everlasting life with Him in heaven.
V7 “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:”
2. The Glory Of God (V9-11)
V9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:”
Indeed one day every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Christ is the Lord for the glory of God. Let us therefore glorify Christ and share His gospel to all that He loves, forgives and saves all who believe and receive Him as their personal Saviour.
V11 “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
3. The Sons Of God (V12-30)
V13 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
What a privilege and honour to know that we are the sons of God when we believe and receive Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord! Let us therefore submit to God, and be blameless and harmless, so that our lives shall shine as lights in this dark and evil world!
V15 “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;”
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that I am Your beloved son because I truly believe in You.
