How can a Christian Spiritually Grow into Christ-likeness
To continue to desire the Word of God
To passionately pursue the Knowledge of the Lord
To seek to have an eternal Focus
To endeavor to live the Mind of Christ
1 Corinthians 2:16 “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
It is an amazing thing to have the mind of Christ. As Christians, our minds are renewed by God through His Word and by His Spirit.
It is one thing to know the mind of Christ, but it is another thing to Live it.
It is one thing to know the Will of God, but it is another to fulfil it.
It is one thing to hear the Words of Christ, but it is another thing to observe them.
Do you know we can be entertained by the truth of God’s Word by being heavily convicted, but doing nothing about it? As growing Christians we must endeavor to have the mind of Christ and live it.
Galatians 5:25 “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
As we have the mind of Christ revealed to us by The Word of God and by His Spirit, we must live it out.
By the Way, there are so many blessings that come from submitting to what we know we ought to do as Christ-Followers.
Note: When we live the mind Christ:
What kind of life did He live before us that we might follow?
TURN TO: Philippians 2:1-8
Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:”
Paul is now going show before the eyes of the Philippians the example of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 2:6-7 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:VS 7But made himself of no reputation…”
Jesus Christ – God, is the perfect example of someone who was selfless. He had others on His mind. The next verse before us describes what it means when Jesus “…made Himself of no Reputation…”
Philippians 2:7 “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:”
2. SERVING MIND - “…and took upon him the form of a servant.”
4. SUBMISSIVE MIND
Philippians 2:8 “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
Jesus humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death. He obeyed even though it cost Him His life.
