Paul wrote to the Christians in the city of Philippi. He reminded them to be united and take care of each other. He also told them to be humble and obedient. Paul talked about Jesus, who is the perfect example of how we should live.
In Philippians 2:5, Paul showed them how to be humble and obedient. “In your life together, think the way Christ Jesus thought.” Our thoughts can lead us to obey God or to rebel against God. So we need to have the same thoughts that Jesus had.
Did Jesus think about giving up or getting revenge against someone who hurt Him, or was He impatient with people? No! Jesus thought like a humble servant. We need to stop thinking like people in the world and think like Jesus did.
It is not easy to think like Jesus. To keep focused on Him, we need to study His teachings and obey them. We need to spend time praying and asking for help to resist temptations from the devil.
