Paul’s Letter to the Philippians

Philippians is one of the most joyful of all the New Testament letters. There are relatively few thorny issues or problems which Paul is forced to discuss, so he can concentrate instead on more 'advanced' matters of discipleship. He devotes a lot of attention to the thughts and the mind. In a very famous passage in chapter 2 he encourages believers to strive to copy Christ's own mindset - one of willing obedience and service to his father. Paul tells his readersthat it's very important to focus our minds on positive, spiritual things, and he reminds them that whatever happens, it is possible (and right) to have a content and joyful outlook because of the salvation available through Christ. Terms related to 'joy' and 'rejoicing' occur time and again throughout the letter and constitute one of its main motifs.
