In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that only those who have their needs met in Christ can consistently meet the needs of others.
Some questions to ask as you read and study Philippians 2:3–4:
- Would you characterize yourself as someone content in Christ? Do you have a lifestyle that counts others more significant than yourself? Is there a connection between the two?
- Read Philippians 4:10–19. Is there anything in this text that enables us to live for others?
- How can you increase your contentment in Christ this week so that you can meet the needs of others?

What Did Jesus Do?
When pondering the question, “How then shall we live?” the Scriptures are our obvious roadmap. But when we hear a command from God and wonder how we can practically apply it, we can be enlightened by asking how Jesus obeyed it.
How Jesus obeyed commands and how we ought to might not always be the same (because he is God and we are not). But searching for intersections between what God expects of us and Jesus’s life gets us thinking more about his amazing life and inclines us to give glory to the God-man for his perfect obedience on our behalf.
