Observation: Philippians 2

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Philippians 2

Watch Week Three Day One

This week, we’ll repeat the very same study process for the next chapter of Philippians. As you repeat it, pay attention to how the experience changes for you. Does it get easier? More complicated? For the first two days of each week, we will mediate on a chapter of Philippians by observing the passage.Today, read Philippians 2. What initially stands out to you about this passage? Read the chapter again. As you read this time, answer the five W questions and how—the who, what, where, when, why, and how of the text. You can use our downloadable chart to write out your answers.

During this observation of Philippians 2, we pray that you will meditate on its truths throughout the day. Psalm 1:1–2 says, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” May we learn the meaning of finding delight in God’s Word.
