5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
It is important to recognize that Christ knew who He was while walking this Earth. He knew his divine purpose; He knew God’s will had to be done. When you know who are you, you know what you have to do. As Christians, we are ambassadors of God called to fulfill His will. God longs to bring heaven down to Earth. He wants to connect with the hurting, the hopeless, and the lonely.
As Christ walked this Earth, He knew the heart of the Father in heaven. The only way we can have the attitude of Christ is to remember that as believers, we are in the potter’s hand. We no longer are called to a life of selfishness, but rather to a life of serving. The best part however, is that God knows what is best for us!
When we trust Him with everything, our life turns into a masterpiece…a life better than anything we could create on our own.
Having an attitude like Christ is to recognize that we are called to a purpose greater than ourselves. Once you recognize God handpicked and appointed you, nothing can stop you from fulfilling your God given purpose!
