Has Jesus Changed You?




Philippians 2:1-5 – Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.  In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.

How many times did Paul use the word ‘any’?  It sounds to me like he was firmly grasping someone’s shoulders, looking them straight in the eye and asking “Has Jesus done anything for you?  Have you changed at all?”

If so, then…..

Then have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.  Tenderness.  Compassion.  Unity.  Humility.  Selflessness.  Immediately, individuals come to mind to whom I do not extend love.  God put His finger right on it, exposing my heart.  How about you? 

Do you extend Christ-like love in all your relationships?  Has Jesus changed you? (click to tweet)
