Philippians 2:1-4

Dwelling Together In Harmony (Philippians 2:1-4)

We feel many things, but delight is the most enjoyable of them all. It is a very satisfying feeling. The dictionary defined “delight” as a sense of great pleasure, a sense of great joy. King David used this expression to describe God’s people dwelling together in unity. David said, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for the brethren to dwell together in unity” (Psalm 133:1).

King David paints a picture of immense delight and pleasure of God’s people dwelling together in unity. In fact, King David likened the unity of God’s people to the fragrant perfume that was used in anointing Aaron as priest. Also, King David likened the unity of God’s people to that of the refreshing dew of Mount Hermon. What a wonderful picture King David drew of God’s people dwelling together in unity!

In this passage, the apostle Paul presented three principles for Christians to dwell together in harmony.

They are:

  • Having a unity of focus (2:1)
  • Having a unity of thought (2:2)
  • Having a unity of purpose (2:3-4)

Not only are we blessed when we dwell together in harmony but also we are a blessing to others.
