The Joy of His Mind
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6 NIV)
What does the Apostle Paul have that we need? Paul visited the city of Phillipi. And he is writing in prison. Even thou his circumstances is bad. He has the mind of Christ. He is full of joy.
What if your present circumstances maybe your greatest opportunity to think like Jesus.
"Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: (Philippians 2:1-5 NIV)"
To think like Jesus means to think less like your flesh. Don't just search for happiness. We must search for the creator of happiness . Followers of Jesus , search for the mind of Christ. Joy is a gift from God if only we will call on Him. We must "hang-out" with Jesus. Call on Him. Study His Word daily.
Say to yourself. Not my mind . But give me the mind that is in Christ Jesus.
