ATTITUDE OF CHRIST


Philippians 2:5

"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus." NIV

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." KJV

Our attitudes and the spirit in which we communicate are as important as the words we speak. It is true that others give meaning to the tone of our voice and demeanor of our bodies more than the words we are saying. It is easy to tell someone's true feelings by their tone and attitude than by just the words they utter. It is so important for us to keep our hearts and minds filled with the Holy Spirit so that we will have the mind of Christ. Then our tone of voice and our attitude will match what we say. And we will be more like Him.
Heavenly Father, forgive us when we fail to have the right attitude, but we only give lip service so that we appear more spiritual than we really are. Help us to adjust our attitudes and our spirits so that we will be like Christ and we will be fruitful in our testimony. We pray in Jesus' name.
