This teaching looks at the lack of service in the Philippian church due to wrong practice regarding the Mystery by not serving one another. Jesus Christ, Timothy, and Epaphroditus are given as examples of people who helped correct this by demonstrating right practice in the area of service to help others live the Mystery and walk in love. If the Mystery is going to live, it takes people having a great heart to serve and give, not being wrapped up in themselves, but looking for needs in the Body to bless the people they are with and bring out their best. Service starts with a decision to stand fast together so we can do the utmost for the highest and serve the Word of life.
