1. Paul’s letter to the Philippians is really quite short. Read it aloud from beginning to the end. If you are in a bubble, or arrange a zoom meeting with others, take turns to read it together. Make a list of the main ideas (words) that stand out to you.
2. Euodia and Syntyche were out of relationship in the Philippian church. If they were 2 people in our church, how would you approach the situation to try and help them be united in Christ? Look carefully at he advice in Matthew 18.
3. Timothy and Epaphroditus were both full time Christian workers who showed what humility and self-sacrifice look like as a disciple. Is it easier or harder to show these characteristics as a disciple of you are a Christian volunteer while holding down a full time job? Why?
4. Paul gives us a number of case studies on humble and self-sacrificial discipleship. His own story in Philippians is also a case study. Read through the letter and discuss the ways his own life, as told in this letter, exemplify the themes of humility and self-scrifice.
