Let this mind be in you

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Phil. 2:5 KJV).

let this mind be in you

In this verse, God commands us to have the same mindset that Jesus had, as we relate with each other. The mindset of Jesus is given to us in verse 6, which says “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God (Phil. 2:6 KJV).

When God became Man, He chose to be born in a barn, rather than in Caesar’s palace! This mindset of humility is what God asks of us today. Humility begins when we realize that our self-serving mindset can be changed. The Lord clearly instructs us to follow the steps of Christ, no matter where we come from. He wants the humble mindset of Christ to be in you, so you will think as He did.

Why is God concerned about our mindset? The way we think determines our attitudes in life, which in turn determines how high we will climb or how deep we will fall. Your mind can be your greatest asset, or your worst enemy. God wants you to strategically position your mind for success. A mindset of humility is an asset. Pride is a liability. A forgiving spirit is an asset. A mindset of strife and anger is a big liability. Allow the Word of God to frame your mindset, and position you for all-around success in life.


Meditation is engaging the mind in the Word of God. This is the foundation for renewing your mind in His Word. Ponder upon the verse above.


Is the mind of Christ in you? Instead of struggling to change your behavior, use the Word of God to focus on changing the mindset that drives those behaviors.


Ask the Spirit of the Lord to help you in the journey of renewing your mind with the Word of God.
