Philippians 2:5 says Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. KJV
Today I read it in my NIV and it reads like this: Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. !!!! WoW!! That really struck me. We have been dealing with some not-so-nice attitudes around here lately and I feel I was led to this this morning. I didn't HAVE to look it up - it was written in the side margin of the study book - in the King James Version. And in that version it is very familiar to me. I am so thankful that God led me to look it up anyway and read the other translation because it really put a new light on it for me. My girls will be hearing this as school starts again next week!
Continuing on the thought of the mind of Christ - here are some words I jotted down after looking up the Bible references my study book gave me: compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, loving, gentle, humble, restful, sinless, good, truthful, noble, pure, lovely, excellent, admirable, praiseworthy, powerful, approved...
And to quote from the study book: "Do you realize how you described the mind of Christ is the same way you should describe your own mind? Wow. That's why we shouldn't let our minds become polluted." -Jennifer Rothschild
May you be blessed by this today as I was and may we all continue to live our lives to please the Lord. May HIS mind be in you!
