“Your attitude should be the same that Chris Jesus had.”
Philippians 2:5

What was the attitude that was in Christ Jesus? “Though He was
God, He did not demand and cling to His rights as God. He made
Himself nothing; He took the humble position of a slave and
appeared in human form. And in human form He obediently
humbled Himself even further by dying a criminal’s death on a cross.”
(Philippians 2:6-8). Self-emptying and self-sacrifice, obedience to
God’s will, and love to men, even unto death of the Cross -
this was the character of Christ for which God so highly exalted
Him. It is the character of Christ that we are to imitate. He was
made in the likeness of men, so we could be conformed into the
likeness of God.

Self-effacement and self-sacrifice that God’s will might be
done and that man might be saved – this was the attitude of
Christ. He lived only to please God and to bless men.

Don’t say that this is an impossibility. What is impossible
with men is possible with God. We are called to work out this
salvation of a Christlike character with fear and trembling; for
“God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and
the power to do what pleases Him” (Philippians 2:13) As we
pray, let this be our one aim: to have the attitude that was in
Christ Jesus.
