Seeking God’s Pleasure – A Study of Philippians
“What Are We Waiting for?”
Because of Easter, Paul declares that all Christians await a Savior from heaven who will transform our lowly bodies to be like his glorious body by the resurrection power which he wields as he rules over all creation. But, because we await this promise, we are active presently in other ways: imitating those living worthily of the gospel; embracing the cross and a life of servanthood; focusing on things of eternal importance rather than on the temporal; nurturing the mindset that we belong to a commonwealth of heaven (that we the Church exist as a colony of heaven on earth) ; and therefore that we are to stand firm daily in the Lord as we make our way in this world. All this because Christ is risen, and will come again!
