Paul lived in Christ. This is something that becomes quite obvious from his letter to the Philippians. He is not speaking as a theologian here, who understands the mysteries of God intellectually, but as someone who has a personal relationship with this God. Paul makes his hope dependent on the will of the Lord, and he believes that his hope is in accordance with it. It is no selfish hope. This hope is noteworthy. He loved the Philippians so much that he was prepared to be a sacrifice—if necessary, to the death.

Even at the beginning of the letter, he mentioned that he prayed for the Philippians continually. He really wanted to hear how they were faring.

Paul is also very confident. He believed that the One who had begun a good work in them would finish it Philippians He was convinced that he would be encouraged when he heard of their circumstances from Timothy. Paul considered Timothy his soulmate, as one who thought as he did and had the same priorities. For this reason, Paul knew that Timothy cared about the Philippians. These are strong words. Only a few verses later, Paul names Epaphroditus as a positive example, and yet he says here that, apart from Timothy, he has no one who is likeminded.

What did he mean by this? Was Paul a little frustrated that he was in prison? Were there no more good Christians? What about Peter, James and the other apostles? The answer is relatively simple: Paul meant all those around him in Rome. He only had Timothy there. Epaphroditus was already with the Philippians, and had presumably brought them the letter. He wants to do without Timothy, to comfort and support the Philippians. Timothy was already familiar to the Philippians.

These subjects are also important and have to be discussed. There are no unimportant doctrines; everything that comes from God deserves, even demands, our attention. But the decisive criterion must be the Gospel.

Is the Gospel being furthered through our efforts or not? Paul considered Timothy to be his soulmate because he spread the Gospel, the good news of redemption. What are we absorbed in? The Gospel, or being dogmatic? Paul could even rejoice over egotistical Christians who preached the Gospel out of strife, because Christ was being preached Philippians Why did Paul not send Timothy to Philippi immediately, however?

Timothy could have taken the letter with him. Paul wanted to send Timothy as soon as he knew what was going to happen to him. What does this mean? Paul trusted that he would soon be able to go himself. Apparently, he did not expect to be imprisoned for very long. On the one hand, he was prepared to be offered as a sacrifice, to die Philippians On the other hand, he trusted in the Lord that he would soon be released. Paul showed once again his love for the Philippians, by promising to visit them if the Lord allowed it.

It is supposed that Paul really was released, and only after a later arrest died the death of a martyr. And yet he waited before he sent Timothy. Who would care for the Philippians then? What does this passage teach us? Even if it is first and foremost about Timothy, we see in Philippians two likeminded men: Paul and Timothy. Their example is given us in the Scriptures, to encourage us to emulate them. This is a great challenge. Paul was a shepherd in both body and soul. He thought first of others in every situation—above all Christ and His Gospel.

Timothy thought, acted and lived in exactly the same way. He was relatively young, and yet Paul looks on him as his soulmate. What about us personally and in our churches? What about us?
