Notes on God's End, God's Way
by T. Austin-Sparks

The backward look:

  • Romans: our man renewed
  • Corinthians: the heavenly man
  • Galatians: deflection
  • Ephesians: corporate life

Fulness in Philippians:

  • Christ Himself (2:5-11).
  • His servant Paul (3:4-15)
  • a. The road to Philippi

    The fight for Philippi (Acts 16)

    Faith tested as to guidance

    Not Asia not Bithynia

    Illness (?) drove him to Galatia, then to Troas

    Frustration hindrance illness

    The battle in Philippi

    b. The road of the prize (3:4-15)

    The way of the Cross

    Two practical applications:

    · Phil. 3:2-3: the circumcision; earthy

    · Phil. 4:2: Eurodia and Syntyche

    The problem of the Philippians how to be set on God's fullest thought: an open heart for all God's people not to be schismatic and divisive.
