That I May Gain Christ

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The book of Philippians is perhaps the sweetest book in the New Testament. Its focus is not so much on teaching, but on how we as believers can enter into the experience of Christ. In this exposition of Philippians, Titus Chu goes through the four chapters of this book in a detailed and very practical way, from the standpoint of how we, both personally and in the local churches, can enter more fully into the experience of Christ.

From Chapter 18, "Working Out Our Salvation"

Paul helped the Philippians by encouraging them to be of the same mind and united in spirit (Phil. 2:2). This was only possible by their letting the mind of Christ be in them (v. 5). Paul described the mind of Christ as being humble (v. 8). No one likes to become lower than others. Everyone likes to be noticed and respected by others. For this reason, Paul stressed the matter of being humble. His stress was not on Christ’s accomplishment of redemption; rather, he portrayed Christ’s humbling of Himself in accomplishing that redemption for us. How low Christ became! Christ’s pattern shows us that the way to become a blessing to the church is to become very, very low. This is the secret of spiritual growth and of gaining Christ (Phil. 3:8).


This book is drawn from messages given by Titus Chu from September 2003 to June 2004 to participants in a year-long spiritual labor and time of study that involved churches from around the American Great Lakes. They were spoken in Toronto, Chicago, Cleveland, and Columbus.
