Joy in Self Forgetfulness

Joy in Self Forgetfulness

1. Focus On What Jesus Has Done

  • Philippians 2:1

Paul opens with a series of “if” statements that may be better understood as “since” statements or “because” statements. They could be stated, “If, as is indeed the case.” The “if” refers to certainties, not possibilities.”

Tony Merida and Francis Chan 

2. Focus On Unity

  • Philippians 2:2 
  • Philippians 1:27
  • Ephesians 2:8-9

3. Focus On Others

  • Philippians 2:3-4 
  • Mark 10: 45

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
