Philippians 2:1-11 (12-13)

Palm Sunday – Year B

Philippians 2:1-11 (12-13)

This is another passage in which it is helpful to read it aft to fore.

G*D is at work in you, for pleasure – yours and G*D's. There will be fear and trembling involved with this pleasure called "salvation". It will include being recognized as G*Dly, which is a pleasure of "glory".

Are you ready for such exaltation, such pleasure? It will be revealed to you in completing what it means for you to be in human form, filling that form with abundant living. It is as worth living as human as it is to live as G*D, there is no competition between them. Let this be fulfilled in you.

Be interested in others living their life, it will encourage you to live yours. This humility will enhance your life in community. Beware those selfish, ambitious, conceited images that would put us into competition of there being only one good. To complete the pleasure of "joy", sympathy, compassion, sharing, and love will console and encourage you to participate in Christing – revealing in oneself the joy and glory of salvation – living sacred and secular, human and divine, as one.
