“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” (Phil. 2:5-8 NKJV)This letter to the Philippians is rich with lessons for all of us! With the Holy Spirit’s help, we will be different people by the time we finish this study together. Jesus has so much to teach us about humility, joy, and serving with love.As we study Philippians 2, each day’s assignment will also include an activity for your children. You can do your study along with your children, go through your lessons first and then do their study with them, or you can just ignore those children’s assignments! But they’re there if you would like to use them.
What Others Have Said
Relationships in the Body
By: Christine Hickman
Worn out by social media? Wondering if there is any place where people can love each other? Our shared spiritual blessings motivate us to live in harmony with one another in the body of Christ. Jesus' servanthood, death and subsequent exaltation are our example of how to love people and serve them. This study is rich in showing us how to have the mind of Christ and hope in the victory of our salvation.
What Do We Hold On To?
By: Susan Menzmer
If you are needing a reminder that your true citizenship is in heaven, then this is the study for you! Take a few weeks to learn from our Lord and Savior, who though He was equal with God, did not hold on to His high position but instead gave it up to become human, and followed God’s leading even when it led Him to death on the cross. This study will draw you closer to Him—it will leave you amazed at His love for you—and it will start you looking at others around you through His eyes of love and compassion.
