5-580x294

 

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11

 

 

Living with the attitude of Jesus:

Your attitude should be the same as Christ Jesus
Therefore God exalted Him

There is power in the name of Jesus

 

1 Peter 5:6 God lifts you up, humble ourselves

Phil 2:15 shine like stars

God’s heart is to bless you and lift us up

 

 

Five things
A attitude
A action
A agony
A ascends
A accolades

 

Attitude results in action that held Jesus through the agony so God ascended Him and gave Him accolades

Be faithful with the attitude and the actions even through the agony

Have the same attitude as Jesus
You make a decision to have an attitude
Attitudes determine destiny
We have a default attitude that programs our lives
Which is why it is important that we have the same attitude as Jesus

 

What is your default attitude?

A bad attitude will never take you to a good destination

Don’t feed a bad attitude, like stroking a cat

God begins with our attitudes

 

What was Jesus’ attitude towards God?
Surrender

What was Jesus’ attitude towards others?
Unconditional love

What was Jesus’ attitude about Himself?
V 5

 

What is inside will come out

Jesus made Himself nothing and took on the form of a servant

Empty yourself
Be a servant

Attitude first, actions second

 

1 you’re committed to giving away any power and accolades and good things and resources given to you
2 you’re committed to living out the plans of God

 

Live your life pouring out
Live your life advancing the kingdom of God

Matt 6:33 Jesus LIVED that

Agony
V5
Humbled Himself
Even to death

Often we find it hard when we have the right attitude and actions but instead of the ascent or accolades we get agony

The agony can make us question our attitude and action
Which sometimes is good but sometimes challenges the good attitude

Don’t let your agony change your attitude and actions but hold onto faith in God

Heb 12:2+
V 11
