ADOPT THE MIND OF CHRIST

As children we used to play a game called follow the leader, whatever the leader does or say we do it. This is something every Christian should do; follow our leader and Savior Jesus Christ. This is exactly what Paul was saying to the Philippians in the text, “If there is any consolation in Christ, any comfort of love, any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels of mercies or affection, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind, let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

If we follow Jesus’ example in everything we do we will be victorious, successful, and triumphant in those very things. Our desire as a Christian should be to walk and talk as our leader Jesus did, with all power in His hands. As a matter of fact He gave us exclusive and all-inclusive rights to everything He did and have. (1) In Luke 10:19 He gave us the power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us. (2) In Matthew 16:19 He gave us the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatsoever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Note that the keys to the kingdom of heaven give us the right and privilege to everything Jesus had at His disposal. (3) In His Great Commission  in Mark 16:15-18 Jesus told us to go out and be like Him and do the things He did. So for this new year let all Christians be like their leader Jesus and act and do the things He did and more. This will fulfill His joy because He told us in Nehemiah 8:10, “…the joy of the Lord is our strength.” And to fulfill His joy Philippians 2:2 tells us to be like CHRIST. And once we have the mindset of Christ we will love our neighbors and others as we do ourselves. And the Church which is the body of Christ will not be divided by denominations, color or creed.

When we present our bodies as Romans 12:1-2 suggests, as a living sacrifice that’s Holy and acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service and when our mind is not conformed to this world but transformed, then we can activate Philippians 2 by having the mindset of Christ because we will be emulating or following  Him.

John 21:19-22 Jesus told Peter to follow Him and He is telling us the same thing today, nothing else should concern us except to follow Him (Verse 2).

THE ONLY WAY

The song goes, “Do you know where you are going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you?” This folks is reality check, because at some point in your life, you will ask yourself those questions. And if you don’t have an answer let me introduce you to, the one who knows the way. He is God’s only begotten Son, His name is Jesus. Please don’t debate with me, it is written in the Bible (John 3:16). I am only a messenger of God through this same Jesus, and I have come to realize that the only way to our Heavenly Father is through Him.

As I said before, don’t debate with me, read the Holy Bible. The fundamental facts of who He is, His purpose, His command for us, the power, and authority, He gave to the believers or Christians who accept Him, and believe in and on Him is written in (John 14:1-14).

For those who don’t have a Bible, I will paraphrase a few verses for you, until you get a Bible and read it for yourself, it says from the NKJ version, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know (Verses 1 through 5).

Verse 6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one (or person) comes to the Father except through Me.’”

Verse 13 and 14 “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

Ok, now you know the truth. I pray it sets you free, however, I must let you know if you don’t accept the Son, and walk in righteousness like He did, then you could ask for whatever from God, but you will not get it. If perhaps you never accept Jesus or know who He is, go to the top of my blog, click on the salvation page and follow the instructions. I give God the glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to get His message out, I pray you will listen, and accept His gift of His son before it’s too late in Jesus name I pray, amen.
