The Mind of Christ

The Mind of Christ

Let the mind (attitude) be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Phil 2:5).

When Jesus came to earth as the Son of Man, He became like us in all things except one—sin. By assuming the form of man, He could model for us a number of human situations in which He acted and reacted sinlessly. He was exposed to hatred, but responded in love. He was exposed to the sick; He responded with compassion. He was exposed to temptation; He resisted by quoting the truths of God’s word. He responded to others with gentleness and humility, always putting the needs of others above His own.

Earthly concerns didn’t bother Him because He knew who He was in relation to the Father. We can have that same relationship. We can have the mind of Christ. He showed us the way.
