The Upside of Down

We live in a world that tells us to succeed at all costs.

“Do whatever it takes”
they say, “to get on top?”

In fact, many give their whole life to this endeavor. In Philippians chapter two, Paul paints a vivid picture of Jesus. This image, to the early readers of this text, would stand in stark contrast to the mind-sets prevalent within the city of Philippi. To more fully understand the depth of what Paul is saying about Christ, we need to track backwards a little bit into the history of Philippi itself. In doing so, this famous passage in Philippians comes alive like never before.

The following
is the fourth message in our on-going study in Philippians. In it we explore how the Apostle Paul defines success and true meaning in life and discover the upside of down.
