Jesus did not hang on to his heavenly glory, but surrendered it to save us. Now he asks us to follow his example and share his heart. He wants us to treat each other as he has treated us, thinking of others' needs and God's will before our own.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped…
— Philippians 2:5-6
Dear Lord, please transform our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit. We want our thoughts to be your thoughts. We want our heart's desire to reflect the passions of your Son. We want our will to be guided by your Spirit. Please forgive our tendencess to ruthlessly hang on to our own importance, our own will, and our own self-justification, even when we know it is not right or best. Make our mind more like the mind of your Son. In Jesus' name. Amen.
