Paul is STILL discussing the submissive mind.He has already given us a description of the submissive mind…exemplified in Jesus (2:1–11). He has also explained the dynamics of the submissive mind (2:12–18). Now he introduces us to two of his helpers in the ministry, Timothy and Epaphroditus. He wants us to know that the submissive mind is not a luxury enjoyed by a chosen few it is a necessity to be DEVELOPED for all believers. Paul and Epaphroditus prove to us that the joyful life is the life of service and sacrifice. They prove to us that the submissive mind really does work. These men lived in Philippians 1:21, not Philippians 2:21…Which verse best describes YOU?
