Brief Thoughts on Philippians

"Philippians gives us not of course failure, but the path of the Christian, salvation being looked at throughout as at the end of the wilderness. Paul had no doubt that Christ had laid hold on him for this blessedness, but he had not got there. Salvation is always looked at as the close of the Journey, in Philippians."
"If you are dead, you cannot live on in sins. If you have got Christ, it is in His death you have got Him. In Colossians 3 we have God seeing us as dead; in Romans 6 I reckon myself dead; in 2 Corinthians 4 we have «bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.` This is going very far indeed. Death to a Paul was so realized that only the life of Jesus worked in him.
"The Christians is to manifest the life of Christ, and nothing else. «Ye are` (not ought to be) «the epistle of Christ,` and let Christ be read in you as plainly as the law in the tables of stone. As Christ represents us before God, so we appear in the presence of the world for Christ."
