Missionary Virtue in Action: A Look at Philippians 2

In this episode, Alex Kocman unpacks the essence of Christian mission-mindedness through the lens of Philippians 2:19-30. Drawing from the examples of Timothy and Epaphroditus, this text demonstrates the way in which we are to be marked by selfless pursuit of Christ’s interests, love for Christ’s people, and the honor and care for Christ’s soldiers. We must move beyond abstractions and to demonstrate love, even though it may be costly and vulnerable. The message serves as a reminder that true Christian virtue is not about self-preservation but about living in humble obedience to Christ’s call, reflecting his cruciform humility, and risking all for the sake of the gospel.
