Re:Verse passage – Philippians 2:5-11 (day six)
“You need to have the same mind as Jesus, to see the world the way He sees it, to share the same attitude.” -Paul, Philippians 2:5
To the church in Corinth he wrote, “Right now, we see things as if we are looking through a dark piece of glass.” To the church in Rome he wrote, “…be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Paul’s desire then and for the church now, is to see and live in the world the same way Jesus did.
Isn’t that what we need? A new mind to see through the things that rob of us joy, and fresh eyes to really see the things that matter most. I imagine it would turn everything on its head; just like he said:
“Don’t you know, to be great, you must become a servant to everyone.”-Jesus
“Don’t you know the meek will inherit the earth.” -Jesus
I’m in need of a new mind (everyday). Aren’t you?
