MIND of CHRIST

 

1 Corinthians 2:16

King James Version

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, 

that he may instruct him? 

but we have the mind of Christ.


From the previous post, we got to know the ways of Satan.

And all the evil he wishes upon man.

Working night, and day, to corrupt our souls.

In sharp contrast, Scripture tells us of the "mind of Christ":

Philippians 2:5-8

King James Version

5 Let this mind be in you, 

which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in the form of God, 

thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, 

and took upon him the form of a servant, 

and was made in the likeness of men:

8 And being found in fashion as a man, 

he humbled himself, 

and became obedient unto death, 

even the death of the cross.


Scripture gives us other verses that describe the mind of CHRIST:

John 5:30

King James Version

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: 

as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; 

because I seek not mine own will, 

but the will of the Father which hath sent me.


1 John 2:29

King James Version

29 If ye know that he is righteous, 

ye know that every one that doeth righteousness 

is born of him.


For His humility, love, and perfect obedience, JESUS receives this honor:

Philippians 2:9-11

King James Version

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 

and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 

of things in heaven, 

and things in earth, 

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.


Now we've come to know the mind of CHRIST.

But there's also the enemy's mind.

And that's for the next post.
