Christ's Attitude, Adopting the Mind of Christ

As believers in Christ, we are called to adopt His attitude in all things. This means not just imitating His actions, but embracing His heart and mind. Philippians 2:5-11 reminds us to have the same mind that was in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

It is not easy to put aside our own desires and ambitions, and to adopt the humble and selfless attitude of Christ. But it is only when we do so that we can truly reflect His glory and love to the world.

We see this attitude of Christ exemplified in His life, as He washed the feet of His disciples, and laid down His life for us on the cross. He was not concerned with His own interests, but with those of others (Philippians 2:4). And He calls us to do the same - to love our neighbors as ourselves, to serve others with joy, and to be willing to sacrifice for the sake of the gospel.

So let us pray for the grace to adopt Christ's attitude, and to love as He loved. Let us seek to empty ourselves of pride and self-reliance, and to put on the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). And let us trust in the power of the Holy Spirit to transform us and enable us to reflect the glory of our Lord in all that we do.
