I have the Mind of Christ 🙂
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”. (Philippians 2:5)
Now that you are Born-Again, you have the Mind of Christ. The Mind of Christ is a “Word based, Word ruled mind.” This type of mind produces rest: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Matthew 11:29.
Now that you have the Mind of Christ, you have a new way of thinking. This is the way that you now think and the grounds upon which you act. In Jesus, you have become a partaker of the Divine Nature through the Word of God.
You now use this way of thinking to display God’s Glory and honour. When you have the Mind of Christ, you do not operate in selfish arrogance and bad manners. How can one compete with his brothers and sisters in Christ, and say, “I have the mind of Christ?” You cannot display the character of the devil and then sanction it as Holy. One has to be like-minded with your brothers and sisters in Christ, having the same love and unity of purpose.
You are now mentally disposed in a certain direction. What is this direction? It is the way of God which is His Word. God’s Word contains His thoughts, Will etc. Having the Mind of Christ causes you to be a doer of God’s Word. As you engage your day, remind yourself that you have the Mind of Christ.
– Faith Confession –
“I do nothing out of selfish ambition and haughtiness, but in the same spirit of humility, I place others before myself as Jesus Christ has called me to do. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.”
