Get ExaltedPhilippians 2:1-18

Are you connected with Christ?

Then be more like Christ

You want to be important?

Let God exalt you

Work out your salvation!

Let God work in you, with you and through you


Philippians 2

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.


3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.


The question…

If you have received encouragement and support from Christ

If you have received comfort or consolation from the love of Jesus

If you have the spirit which unites us

If you have received tenderness and felt his compassion


If you know Christ…

Why do you behave like the rest of the world?

You have wrong ideas, assumptions and attitudes

5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:


6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross!


Christ is our role model

  • Christ was and is God
  • Became nothing / a servant / a bondman
  • bondman: a male slave
  • a man bound to service without wages
  • Humble and obedient

9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


Why is Paul telling them this?

The Philippians want to exalt themselves

Selfish, thinking too highly of themselves and looking out for number one

Paul says, if you want to be really important you must be more like Christ

1. He served to the glory of God the Father

2. He was exalted

3. His name above every name


12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.



Continue to work out your salvation

Mature in Christ

Refine it, complete it and continue the journey of faith


It is God who works in you to will and act

God is the one who has a purpose and plan for your life, if you let him in

Stop getting in the way of God’s purpose and plan for you

Stop refusing to mature


14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16 as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.


17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.


My value comes from…

Helping you to see Christ

Encouraging you to get deeper with Christ

Impressing on you the importance of growing in Christ

My failure would be…

Allowing you to remain shallow and superficial


Allow God to complete the process of your salvation

Stop complaining, arguing, being selfish, thinking too highly of yourselves and looking out for number one

Be different; be successful

Make me proud

Let me die knowing you have

the “word of life”


Paul questions

Are you connected with Christ?

Let us strive to be more like Christ

You want to be important?

Let God exalt us

How do you work out your salvation?

Let God work in us, with us and through us
