What is the mind of Jesus Christ?

How can we have "the mind of Christ?"

1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

The mind of Jesus Christ is the way that he thinks and is therefore revealed in his teachings.

John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Those who understand and obey his teachings have the ‘mind of Christ’.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

1 Peter 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

Jesus submitted himself to the will of his Father.

John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

He lived by the word of God.

Luke 4:4… It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Jesus spoke the words of God.

John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Those who believe and obey the gospel must allow the word to change the way that they think and behave.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

The scriptures are given for instruction.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

By reading and meditating on the scriptures we develop the mind of Christ, and are in this way born again.

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

I hope you find this helpful.

God bless,
