The Mind Of Christ

Paul told the Philippians that they should not look to their own interests, but to the interests of others. They needed to be humble in their dealings with one another. He then holds up Jesus as the model for how to have a relationship with someone. He wrote:

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus… – Philippians 2:5 (NIV)

In the next several verses after this, Paul elaborates on what he means by having the mind of Christ. We need to be more like Jesus in our relationships inside and outside of the church. In our homes, we need to have the mind of Christ as we deal with our spouses, our children and our parents. In our workplaces, we need to have the mind of Christ as we deal with our bosses, employees and co-workers. In our churches, we need to have the mind of Christ as we deal with people who may be much different than us. In every relationship we have, we need to consider how Jesus would love, serve and forgive the other person.
