"Let This Mind Be In You, Which Was Also In Christ Jesus" Philippians 2:5 What Does That mean?
AND HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
In this exhortation the apostle Paul is telling the people of God, “Let the mind that is in Christ—the very thinking of Jesus—be your thinking also. His mindset is the one we all are to seek.”
What does it mean to have the mind of Christ? Simply put, it means to think and act as Jesus did. It means making Christ-like decisions that determine how we are to live. It means bringing every faculty of our mind to bear on how we actually can have the mind of Christ.
Every time we look into the mirror of God’s Word, we’re to ask ourselves: “Does what I see about myself reflect the nature and thinking of Christ? Am I changing from image to image, conformed to Jesus’ very likeness by every experience that God brings into my life?”
According to Paul, here is the mindset of Christ. “(He) made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:7).
This means that as a christian one should allow and try to have a mind like Christ. That one should strive to have the understanding and thought processes like Christ. One can achieve this by reading the bible and thoroughly studying the words and actions of Christ and then applying the lessons learned from such into ones own life.
