Every Knee Shall Bow (Chapter 2)
Jesus can relate to what you're going through. Philippians 2 says that He took on our nature and likeness, and experienced our hurts and pains. We refer to this as the "humility" or "condescension" of Christ. However, Philippians not only says that Jesus was humbled, it also says that He was exalted. Click to learn more in Week 3 of our study."Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me." - Philippians 1:21-26

Greetings From Prison: An Introduction To Philippians
Paul was in prison. His situation was TERRIBLE. Death awaited. And yet, it was here that Paul wrote the most joyous letter in all of the Bible. How can this be? Join us for the first week in our study on the Book of Philippians."1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, to all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons: 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:1-6
