The apostle proceeds to further exhortations to several duties, to be like-minded, and lowly-minded, which he presses from the example of Christ (Phil. 2:1-11), to be diligent and serious in the Christian course (Phil. 2:12, 13), and to adorn their Christian profession by several suitable graces, Phil. 2:14-18. He then concludes with particular notice and commendation of two good ministers, Timothy and Epaphroditus, whom he designed to send to them, Phil. 2:19-30.
