HAVE THIS MIND IN YOU
What we think, says a lot about who we are. The Word of God says, “So one thinketh so he is.” We should always think godly thoughts that are honorable and pleasing unto Him. Make sure that your thoughts are God-centered and not thoughts of evil or ill-will, pettiness, greed, or lust. We are called to have the mind of Christ. In Philippians 2:5, we find these words:
“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”
Paul, the humble servant of the Lord, speaks to the people regarding their conduct,
saying, “Do everything without complaining and arguing,so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” Paul tells the Philippians, that as believers, they must have a humble disposition and count others better than themselves. He said, “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” Paul wanted them to have the humility of Christ, because he knew from his own life-changing experience of the need for a Christ-centered mind. A radical transformation had taken place in his life. Consequently, he urged his fellow believers to have the heart and mind of Christ. Prayerfully, our minds and our hearts have been changed, and we allow God to dwell inside us. If we think on things that are holy, honorable, right, and true, then, Christ will dwell richly in us.
