The Attitude of Christ

The Bible is full of passages that tell us how our attitudes should be. One of my favorites has to be in Philippians 2. This passage gives us the best example; the attitude of Christ.

Philippians 2:3-8

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross!”

If Jesus could set aside his rights, his nature, and become human, and die in the place of men. Sinners. How can we ever boast in anything but Christ?

My prayer for us all is that this scripture would seep into our hearts, and grow in us a spirit of humility. That we would begin to reflect the attitude of Christ.

In God’s love and grace,

    God sent His word [Jesus Christ] so that we might know Him. What He likes and what He hate. What to do and not what to do. How to live a life. So therefore, we too have to practice the word Abide in it.That’s why I said, I was created to enjoy but not to suffer as far as I’m practicing to follow the attitude of Jesus Christ.

    I just was reflecting on this exact verse…
    We as God’s children are called to be un-offendable.

    Like you said, Jesus set aside so much. We will always be in debt to set aside our own selfish ambitions to him because, no matter what, he set aside more.

    My prayer is that we continue to surrender the things of the flesh that grip us. That we would let go and let God’s desires and love speak first and totally encompass our attitude daily.
