The kind of unity needed to strive together for the gospel is only possible when we forget ourselves and count others more significant. As Alec Motyer says, while that is a natural overflow of the gospel, it doesn’t come naturally. How can we just forget ourselves? Union with Christ is the answer, and we’ll see why in this passage.
