Let this mind be in you

Let this mind be in you

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

Write this admonition, O Lord, upon the tablet of my heart —and work in me to will and to do of Your good pleasure. May I commune much with Christ—that I may imbibe His spirit. May I live in sweet communion with Him—that I may walk in resemblance to Him.

How holy and humble He was! Save me, O Lord, from the love and power of every sin! Deliver me from pride and vain-glory—and give me a meek and lowly spirit.

How benevolent He was! He went about doing good. Make me something like Him. May I be tender-hearted, kind and compassionate, and disposed to give to the need of others according to my ability.

How patient was Jesus under reproach—and submissive under suffering! Grant me, O Lord, the same mind. When reviled—may I not revile again; and when persecuted—may I not threaten, but commit myself to Him who judges righteously. In all the afflictions and trials of life—help me in patience to humbly resign myself to You.

How gracious and forgiving Jesus was! One of His last prayers was offered for those who crucified Him: "Father," He cried, "forgive them, for they know not what they do!" Deliver me, O Lord, from a spirit of resentment! Help me to do good to those who hate me, and to pray for those who despitefully use me.
