In order for an organization to successfully live up to its purpose it must have the ability to focus on a fixed point –a purpose statement, a common goal, a leader, etc. The church is no different. In fact, it’s not just an organization, it’s an organism. The church is described as a body; and just as a body needs feeding, cleaning, and general maintenance, so the church similarly has spiritual needs. Ignoring these needs will cause the body to become unhealthy, leaving it unfit and unable to carry out its purpose. In Philippians 2:1-4 Paul prescribes what believers need in order to live spiritually healthy lives with one another. Paul will give us the perfect and only fixed point we need to accomplish the mission–the Lord Jesus Christ.
