Mindset as Christ Jesus

“5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God,
   did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
   by taking the very nature of a servant,
   being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
   he humbled himself
   by becoming obedient to death —
        even death on a cross!”

NIV Philippians 2:5-8; KJV Philippians 2:5-8

If Jesus, who in His very nature being God, could humble himself to be a servant and to be obedient to death, then what are we to do?!  Follow His example! Be humble. Obey God. We all know what that means, yet we choose to go the other way. The other way leads to destruction! God’s way leads to LIFE eternal!

Philippians 2
