Have the Same Mind…

“Make my joy complete: be of the same mind. Having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind” (Phil 2:2 NRSV).

            The church is the body of Christ, which should be united with one purpose, one mind and one attitude. This mind should be the mind of Christ, which will give glory to the Lord.

         To have this same mind would require thinking outside of one self and looking out for the interest of others. Loving others as one loves one’s self and doing unto others as they would have them to do unto them. This demonstrates an attitude of living a life devoted to living for Christ and not being selfish. This will help one to have the same love and being on one accord looking to do what is best for the whole than what is best for self.

         Selfish living is not living for Christ. Christ calls us to deny our self and to pick up our cross so that we can follow him (see Matt 16:21-28). Surrendering ones life to the Lord will help one to put life in proper perspective. To realize that Jesus paid the price for our life to set us free from the bondage of sin so we can now live a life that is holy and pleasing unto him. This life involves loving our neighbor and doing what is right for them and serving them to glorify the Lord.

         This will lead to a life of one accord and having the same mind. Agreeing to what is truth and love what is pure and holy. This will promote living to serve the Lord with others with one mind and one heart.  This is having the same mind.
