We look at Paul’s directive to followers of Jesus in Philippians 2:5.
Philippians 2:5-11 (NIV) 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Christ Himself is our example of what our attitude should be. When we are following Christ closely, His Holy Spirit helps us to take on His characteristics and attributes. This action of the Spirit gives us the power to truly be like Christ.
