Be Prepared: The Mind, Part 5

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

Ultimately, the mind prepared to serve the Lord belongs to a person who strives to have the mind of Christ.

  • The mind of Christ is the mind of a servant.
"And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all."
Mark 10:44

  • The mind of Christ is humble.
"The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility."
Proverbs 15:33

  • The mind of Christ is obedient.
"If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love."
John 15:10

In review, a mind prepared to serve the Lord will be
  • A Renewed Mind
  • A Willing Mind
  • A Mind Stayed on God
  • A Mind That Recalls
  • The Mind of Christ
"And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself."
Luke 10:27
