The book of Philippians is perhaps the sweetest book in the New Testament. Its focus is not so much on teaching, but on how we as believers can enter into the experience of Christ. In this exposition of Philippians, Titus Chu goes through the four chapters of this book in a detailed and very practical way. This book is drawn from messages given in 2003 - 2004 to participants in a year-long spiritual labor in the Great Lakes area. They were spoken in Toronto, Chicago, Cleveland, and Columbus.
From Chapter 18, "Working Out Our Salvation"

Paul helped the Philippians by encouraging them to be of the same mind and united in spirit (Phil. 2:2). This was only possible by their letting the mind of Christ be in them (v. 5). Paul described the mind of Christ as being humble (v. 8). No one likes to become lower than others. Everyone likes to be noticed and respected by others. For this reason, Paul stressed the matter of being humble. His stress was not on Christ’s accomplishment of redemption; rather, he portrayed Christ’s humbling of Himself in accomplishing that redemption for us. How low Christ became! Christ’s pattern shows us that the way to become a blessing to the church is to become very, very low. This is the secret of spiritual growth and of gaining Christ (Phil. 3:8).

About the Author:

Titus Chu was born in Zhejiang, in the mainland of China, in 1935. Due to the civil war his family moved to Taiwan, where he became a Christian in 1953. In 1954 he had a real turn to the Lord, and in 1956 entered into a one-year training with Witness Lee, who had been a co-worker of Watchman Nee. After that training, Titus continued his education and also served among the churches in Taiwan raised up through Witness Lee’s ministry. In 1963, he came to the United States for graduate study and eventually settled in Cleveland, Ohio. Since then he has been used by the Lord to raise up churches and co-workers in the Great Lakes area of the United States and Canada. Today he continues to serve among these churches, as well as among overseas churches, especially in Asia, for the building up of the Body of Christ. Most of his spoken ministry is given in conferences and trainings that are held throughout the year in these areas both in English and in Chinese.
