Philippians has been called the Epistle of Joy. The Christian life is meant to be radiant and joyful. The Lord’s people ought to be a joyful people. The introduction of the first eleven verses is like the avenue leading to a big house. The beginning of the work is recorded in Acts 16:7-10. The Lord’s way of reaching people is through the obedience of the servant. In Philippi it depended on Paul’s obedience. God closed one door and opened another. We are very familiar with the truth of forgiveness but have almost come to the place where it doesn’t really matter whether we obey God or not. If I can simply turn to 1Jn.1:9 and confess my sin, why worry about obedience. If we were willing to go out and simply do what we know God wants us to do, revival would break out here. The whole situation in any given assembly depends on the obedience of a servant. There wouldn’t be an assembly if someone was not willing to be an obedient servant.
