[The key to life is to live every moment with Jesus Christ. When you do everything changes: you look at suffering and success differently and you’re willing to die for others as Jesus did. In short, your identity changes: you become Christ-like. You know that He’s in you and you’re in Him and that this oneness will one day be permanent, therefore] if Euodia and Syntyche and the rest of the Philippians live every moment with Jesus, then instead of fighting, they’ll treat each other as loving brothers and sisters should. Their anxiety will be replaced by God’s inexplicable peace which will protect them from any mental or emotional harm. They will think and act like Jesus and be surrounded by the God of peace as Jesus was. The Philippians are familiar with this: they gave of themselves financially many times to help Paul. So Paul reminds them of the reality of what it’s like to live with Jesus: God provides everything you need, always. Therefore, whether you have it all or nothing, you’ll be able to do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Let us therefore glorify our God and Father forever!
