Personalize the Scripture

Where do I draw the line against being likeminded as Philippians 2:2 requires? Why?

"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory" -- had I adhered to that fully yesterday, what would I have left undone or done differently? And how will I do better at that today?

How much do I want a lowly mind? What am I willing to do to attain to it?

"Esteem other better than themselves" -- on what basis should I do that?

Can I be a Christian and not "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus"? Does God expect me to somehow actively pursue that?

Whom does God call me to serve today?

Before whom must I humble myself today?

This mind in me: "Made himself of no reputation"?

This mind in me: "Took upon him the form of a servant"?

This mind in me: "He humbled himself"?

This mind in me: "Became obedient"?

If that mind is in me and if that mind is in you, we are likeminded!

I bow my knee and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Amen.
