HIS ATTITUDE

 
"Your attitude must be that of Christ." —Philippians 2:5
 

We can have not only the heart and mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16) but also His attitude. Christ's attitude was to empty (Phil 2:7) and humble "Himself, obediently accepting even death, death on a cross!" (Phil 2:8) The Lord's attitude is "gentle and humble" (Mt 11:29). He came to serve, not to be served (Mt 20:28). He tells us to take the lowest place (Lk 14:10). The Lord "guides the humble to justice, He teaches the humble His way" (Ps 25:9). The Lord teaches us to "think humbly of others as superior" to ourselves and to look "to others' interests rather than" our own (Phil 2:3, 4).

The Lord's attitude is graphically expressed by the manger in Bethlehem, the cross on Calvary, and His giving us Himself under the appearances of bread and wine. Jesus' attitude is humble, obedient, unselfish, crucified, glorified, astounding, and mysterious. Amazingly, the Lord commands and graces us to have in us the attitude that is in Him (Phil 2:5). Get His attitude!

 
Prayer: Father, send the Holy Spirit to give me the attitude of Jesus.
Promise: "If a wicked man, turning from the wickedness he has committed, does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the sins which he committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die." —Ez 18:27-28
Praise: Praise Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life! (Jn 11:25)
 
(To get the attitude of Christ, read the Bible daily. For encouragement, order any or all of these audio or video tapes: Ignorance of Scriptures is Ignorance of Christ, AV 82-1, V-82. How to Pray the Bible on audio AV 82-3 or on video V-82. How to Read the Bible on audio AV 46-3 or on video V-46. Principles of Bible Interpretation, audio AV 79-1, video V-79.)
