Philippians 2:2

complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. (Philippians 2:2, ESV)
This verse is overflowing with community themes:  same mind, same love, full accord, one mind, and all for a joy that is completed together.

  • "same mind" is the same understanding. 
  • "same love" is the same unconditional care for each other. 
  • "full accord" could also be translated ... same soul or same spirit.
  • "one mind" is of one understanding. 
So Paul says that these things will "complete my joy" or "fill up my joy". There is truly something to be said for a group that is like-minded. When you are in a crowd of people, all there for the same good purposes, there is something naturally invigorating about it. So much more so, when the Spirit of God is also included.
