Expressions of love:
Phil 2 & 3

  1. Now I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be encouraged by hearing news about you.
  2. I am all the more eager to send him (Epaphroditus), so that when you see him again you can rejoice and I can be free from anxiety.
  3. Finally, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! To write this again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.

Expressions of love:
Phil 4

  1. So then, my brothers and sisters, dear friends whom I long to see, my joy and crown, stand in the Lord in this way, my dear friends!
  2. I have great joy in the Lord because now at length you have again expressed your concern for me. (Now I know you were concerned before but had no opportunity to do anything.)

Philippians 1

  1. I thank my God every time I remember you.
  2. I always pray with joy in my every prayer for all of you
  3. For it is right for me to think this about all of you, because I have you in my heart...
  4. For God is my witness that I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.


To be so deeply impacted by what Jesus did

that it changes all our relationships.

Letter from a Roman governor

Pliny the Younger, wrote to Emperor Trajan in A.D.112–3

“…Christians are in the habit of singing hymns, to Christ as to a god”

Philippians 2:1-11

At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of glory now;
‘tis the Father’s pleasure we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

Humbled for a season, to receive a name
from the lips of sinners, unto whom he came;
faithfully he bore it spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious when from death he passed;
