Attitude of Christ
When we find ourselves in difficult circumstances, it is easier to surrender to cynicism than to fight for joy. As humans, we tend to allow negativity to be the first thoughts in our head and direct our path during tough times. In the bible, Paul recognized this fact and wrote to the church in Philippi to live out lives that are obedient to God and uplift one another through encouragement. Join us as we journey through the book of Philippians and study Paul’s letter to the church in our Summer Teaching Series Priority Mail.

The Apostle Paul wrote, “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 2:5) Another word for mindset is attitude. In reading verses 6-8 it is evident that central to the attitude of Jesus is humility. How does having Jesus’ mindset of humility in your relationships influence what you do and how you do it?
In his sermon, Willie said, “The one who most deserves to be served humbled himself to be a servant of those who least deserved to be served.” What does that say to you about your relationship with Jesus?
Read Philippians 2:3-4. The practice of humility outlined in these verses is crucial to healthy, Christ honoring relationships. Check your heart to see if your actions in relationships are motivated by selfish ambition and vain conceit to impress others. What will you do differently in your relationships/friendships to show interest in others.
