Let this mind be in you

" Let this mind be in you , which was also in Christ Jesus." Philippians 2:5

How different an aspect would the Church of Christ present—if every member of it walked in obedience to this precept, and habitually manifested a holy, humble, self-sacrificing, benevolent, and forgiving spirit.

Too often, alas! pride and vain-glory are conspicuous in the professed followers of Him who was meek and lowly in heart!

Too often selfishness is discovered in those who profess to be the disciples of Him who, though He was rich, for our sakes became poor!

Too often is a resentful temper displayed by those who profess to love Him who prayed for His murderers, and died for His enemies.

Oh that every true believer may continually seek a supply of the Spirit of Christ! For it is only in proportion as we have the same mind in us that was in Him, and as we tread in His steps—that we glorify our Father who is in Heaven.

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you!" Ephesians 4:32

"Lord, may that mind be formed in us
  Which shone so bright in Thee,
  May we be humble, lowly, meek,
  From pride and envy free.

"May we to others stoop, and learn
  To emulate Your love;
  So shall we bear Your image here,
  And share Your joy above!"
