Be united in your goals and in the way you think. In whatever you do, don't let selfishness and pride be your guide.
Like Mindedness. Just like some twins they seem to think alike and believe alike. God wants us to to have the same mind He has and to think like he thinks. We are to have his thoughts.
Think about what we have in Christ; the encouragement he has brought us, the comfort of his love, our sharing in his Spirit, and the mercy and kindness he has shown us. If you enjoy these blessings, then do what will make my joy complete.
Agree with each other and show your love for each other. Be united in your goals and in the way you think. In whatever you do, don't let selfishness and pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves. Don't be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too.
Philippians 2:1-4 ERV
“The transformation of our thought life by taking on the mind of Christ – his ideas, images, information, and patterns of thinking – opens the way to deliverance of every dimension of the human self.” So the question is, are we taking on the mind of Christ? Some of you may be thinking, “I don’t know this sounds like it may require some effort and changes on my part.” As you think about what having the mind of Christ may mean for you, remember this; we learn in Philippians 2 that Jesus was willing to give up all claim to title, rights, privilege, recognition, and personal glory, and sought simply to be obedient to God without fanfare, without applause, without glorifying himself and without promise of reward. He did that for you, for me, for all the people of the world. Paul says, this is the central defining act of the Christian faith and it is the attitude, the approach that all Christ followers are to demonstrate. It may go against our human nature, it goes against the tide of popular culture, but it is the way Christians are supposed to be in having the mind of Christ.
