Excerpt One
The Living Out of the Oneness

About

After covering Genesis, the gospels, Acts, Romans, and Ephesians we come to the book of Philippians. Philippians shows us the living out of the oneness as luminaries. The living out of the oneness as luminaries is through three things: One living, one pursuing, and one fellowship.



Excerpt Two
The Oneness Among the Lord, the Apostle, and the Church

About

There was a oneness among the Lord, the Apostle Paul, and the church in Philippi. Christ was the center. Then with Christ there was the apostle, who cared for the saints in the “inward parts” of Christ Jesus (Phil. 1:8; literally, “bowels”). The saints, in turn, had the apostle in their heart and loved the Lord through the help of the apostle. Such a oneness shows us that no Christian can live the Christian life by himself.



Excerpt Three
To Know Him and the Power of His Resurrection

About

To know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings (Phil. 3:10) is a matter of experience. First we know Him, then we have the power of His resurrection, which leads us into the fellowship of His sufferings, which, in turn, is for our growth.



Excerpt Four
Being One by Having the Saints in Your Heart

About

Oneness doesn’t come by different brothers agreeing to do things together, but by having the saints in our heart (cf. Phil. 1:8).



Excerpt Five
Pursuing the Lord to Gain Him

About

To pursue the Lord we must in a sense “persecute” Him by not letting Him go (Phil. 3:12; The Greek word translated “pursue” can also be translated as “persecute.”). The Lord has already gained us; now we need to gain Him by pursuing Him, even to the point of “persecuting” Him.
