Philippians 2:19-21 Family Worship

  1.  Even though Paul chooses to send Timothy to the saints at Phillipi, in whom is Paul’s hope?   Why does he tell us this?
  2. Why is Timothy being sent by Paul?  What is his mission?
  3. Imagine what type of person Timothy must have been for Paul to make these statements.  Compare these men to yourself and others in your life.
  4. Read 1 Corinthians 4:17 and 1 Thessalonians 3:2, and note the different reasons Paul “sent” his trusted friend.  Does the church today send people for the same reasons?
  5. Identify the characteristics in v20-21 that made these two men trusted friends.  Are these present in your friendships? Pray for this in your life.
  6. Is it ever permissible to seek one’s own interest?  If so, under what circumstances?
  7. If you were Timothy, would your friends make these same statements about you?
