Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Philippians 2:21


2:21 For all - But Timotheus. Seek their own - Ease, safety, pleasure, or profit. Amazing! In that golden age of the church, could St. Paul throughly approve of one only, among all the labourers that were with him? #Php 1:14|,17. And how many do we think can now approve themselves to God? Not the things of Jesus Christ - They who seek these alone, will sadly experience this. They will find few helpers likeminded with themselves, willing naked to follow a naked Master.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 2:21


Php 2:21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's. Others, who were at hand, were more mindful of their own interests than of Christ's cause. We infer from this that of his faithful fellow- preachers none were in Rome save Timothy.
