Interpretation: Paul wants the Philippians to adopt a manner of life that is worthy of the gospel of Christ. They can do so by standing firm in one spirit and with one mind, striving for the faith of the gospel, not being intimidated by their opponents. This serves not only as a sign to the opponents of their destrcution, but also of the Philippians' salvation, which comes from God. So then for the sake of Christ, they should not only believe in him but be prepared to suffer for his sake, like what Paul has been and is still going through. Application: (i) Prayer that we may stand firm in one spirit and with one mind with other believers so that our manner of life may be worthy of the gospel of Christ. (ii) Remembering the unity that we have as believers through salvation. (iii) Being a Christian should involve a willingness not only to acknowledge Jesus but to also suffer for his sake. We can find comfort in that we need not be intiminated by our opponents as we stand united for the faith of the gospel. We can also recall the Christian attitude where "to live is Christ, and to die is gain". Regardless of what happens to us, we should be seeking to bring honor to Christ through our lives.
