I certainly want my manner of life to be "worthy of the Gospel of Christ", so it's vital that I regularly examine how I'm living to be sure that it is. The apostle Paul gave me some clues (in the immediate context of Philippians 1:27-28) as to what manner of life he had in mind. He wrote that he hoped to hear that the Philippian believers were...
- "...standing firm..." -- persevering
- "...in one spirit, with one mind, striving side by side..." -- unified with other Christians
- "...for the faith of the Gospel..." -- of faith and Gospel-oriented
- "...and not frightened in anything by your opponents" -- courageous
