Resisting Empire

May 26, 2019 |

Scripture: Philippians 2:12-18 ESV | Series:

The command to “not complain” seems a little petty in light of the majestic poem Paul just wrote, marveling in the mysteries of God’s voluntary humiliation for our sake on the cross. But Paul is not just telling the Philippians to be careful about being too picky, he is warning them to be on guard against the forces of empire which threaten to fracture God‘s rule and frustrate his plan of salvation.
