Let this mind be in you...

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2:5-8)

This morning I read this verse and noticed the phrase "Let this mind be in you". What is that mind? It is humility. Jesus completely emptied Himself, he held on to nothing for himself. What he did hang on to was the Father. He did only what the Father wanted. That is the mind that should be in us.
