Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: (Philippians 2:5)
No pressure here—just have the same attitude as the Lord of the Universe, OK? Got it?
This is your calling, Beloved of Christ. God wants you to become like him, to be conformed to his image, to see the world through his eyes and love it with his heart. Tomorrow we will look at what Paul means by an attitude, “The same as that of Christ Jesus.” For today, just consider this: God has called you—commanded you—to be like him. Not in some cultish “I will be a god myself one day!” sort of way, but in a, “I love you so much that I want to be just like you!” kinda way.
If you provide the want-to, he’ll provide the how-to.
And frankly, if you ask, he’ll even provide the want-to.
He’s pretty awesome that way.
Happy Wednesday, Beloved.
