    You continue with good you'll be blessed

    I think this is the very best advice for living that man can get. If we all took this to heart then the world would be entirely different. Christ gave up so much for us but we worry so much about ourselves that we are willing to give up nothing but want everything. Christ will return soon and there is no way that we can be ready unless we submit to the will of God.

    We have to strive for the mind of Jesus Christ this will not be easy. The carnal man is always trying to pull us down but with the Holy Spirit we can overcome the the fleshly thoughts that is in direct opposition to the will of Jesus Christ.
  • Ronnie Bray for verse 6
    The Gospel according to John takes great pains to record the words of Jesus telling his disciples and other hearers that not only was he not God, but also that he was dependent on God, and was doing the will of the Father and not acting according to his own will. See Jn 17 . Philippians 2:6 is a difficult passage and exegetes keep to both sides of the argument. The passage is referred to as the 'kenotic' passage, meaning that Jesus in human form emptied himself or divested himself of his glory, the glory he had with the father prior to his birth as Mary's child. We read in the New testament that after Jesus sacrificed himself on the cross, he was raised incorruptible, meaning that he would never die again. It was no mere phantom that appeared to the eleven apostles and let then feel his wounds and ate with then, "Handle me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye see me have." This appearance and the resurrected Liord's interaction with his apostles is proof to them and proof to us today that the resurrection was a real physical event and that the body with which Jesus was raised could never die again, so he still has it to this very day and eternally, and when we see him we also shall be clothed in the body we had as mortals and that body of flesh and bones will be incorruptible. What a glorious future in eternity for those that Know God and love him and his Son our Saviour, for we shall be, as Paul said, 'joint heirs with Christ.'
  • John madden for verse 12
