LORD JESUS CHRIST SAYS

and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Mind of Christ – What Perspectives Does Christ have?



When believers have the mind of Christ, we understand God’s plan for the world and understand that He wants to bring about His purpose. It doesn’t mean that we are infallible and can start “playing God” in the lives of other people.


The Bible describes several things that Jesus valued. With the mind of Christ, believers should value them as well.

  • A desire to bring glory to God. In John 17:5, Jesus said, “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.”

  • A longing to provide salvation for sinners. Luke 19:10 says, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”

  • A perspective on humility and obedience. Philippians 2:5-8 explains, “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, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!”

  • A compassionate heart. Matthew 9:36 shows Jesus’ compassion on the people, “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”

  • Prayerful dependence on God. Luke 5:16 says, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”
