Philippians 2:1-5 NLT Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
It may not be a real word that you can use in scrabble for major points, but the idea is right on. IAM Christ-Minded
I am encouraged, motivated and pushed everyday to take on the mind of Christ. That is my heart’s desire. That my heartbeat and soul would pulse and have the same rhythm as God’s.
That mind of Christ is to be humble. To be more concerned about the needs and interests of others
Brain, Mind, soul, heart… all of those parts are different things going on inside me. When I think about what moves me and drives me. I can’t separate any of them, into easy compartments. It’s kind of messy, and all of those parts of our being are being transformed to be more like Jesus if we choose and desire it.
When we belong to Christ, there are a couple encouragements that come from that.
- Comfort from his Love
- Fellowshipping in the Spirit
- Tenderness and Compassion of heart
I am so thankful to be a part of a community that agrees wholeheartedly with each other and what God wants. I see and receive that daily. I know that I am loved, and I love others and it nourishes my soul. And we are moving towards big time dreams with one mind and purpose. When a community is wholeheartedly living and interacting with these attitudes of Christ, then it’s amazing to see the unity of Love and purpose.
I have one mind. I have one purpose. To share the Love of Jesus with as many people as possible
