Everyone wants joy. Even the world is chasing joy, in infinite directions. But in Philippians 2, Paul lays out the path to complete joy. No surprise, Paul uses Christ as the model, and the only path to completed joy following his exact footprints, beginning with the cross and ending with the glory of God. As The Mandalorian would say, “this is the way.” Christ’s humility and obedience, all the way to the cross, and from there, exalted by God, for God’s ultimate glory. This is the only route to complete joy.
