In this book, Chandler expounds over the book of Philippians. Using Paul's four chapter letter to the church in Philippi, Chandler delves into what it means to serve Christ and how to do it with contentment, joy, and faithfulness. Chandler connects it to the Gospel story as only he can do and demonstrates the message of Christ through Paul's writings to the church. Chandler works through the scriptures about working out our own salvation, rejoicing in the Lord always, being able to do all things through Christ, and more. As he connects the words of Paul to those of Christ and the life of Christ, Philippians begins to take on a greater meaning. The verses we so often quote come even more alive when infiltrated with the life and love of Christ.
Chandler brings the reader full circle in embracing Christ more so than anything else in the world. He demonstrates how divine chance encounters with three individuals in Philippi recorded in Acts set the stage for what we now know as the book of Philippians. When the book is finished, the reader has no choice but to see how a life lived fully for Christ will always trump our best efforts to find joy and happiness on our own. We completely embrace and understand Paul's words that to for him to live was Christ and should he be killed while in prison, he would consider it gain. When we fall in love with Christ and all He is and has done, we will truly be able to find our fulfillment and joy in Him alone and in doing so, we find that the things of life are not so important. As the old hymn suggests, "Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of the world, will grow strangely dim. In the light of His glory and grace."
