Much of what is called Christian teaching today emphasizes the way to emotional peace and physical comfort. In contrast, Paul commends the Philippians for being partners with him in the faith, and encourages them to remain united by the faith, so that they may live for the faith. Paul teaches his readers to seek first the kingdom of God, even if it leads to suffering and hardship. He says that he can be content under all circumstances by the strength that Christ gives. Instead of using the Christian life as an excuse or a platform to pursue the interests of men, the apostle teaches a Christianity that promotes and pursues the interests of Christ.
