The church at Philippi was about to become a house divided…much like America today…and the apostle Paul urged the congregation to remember and follow God’s will.
“Therefore, my dear friends,” he wrote, “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, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
“Do everything without complaining or arguing, 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 of the universe, as you hold out the word of life.” (Philippians 2: 12-16a)
