Thinking Like Christ Do
1 Corinthians 2:16 (New King James Version)
For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Before we decide to “save something in heart” / irritation,
talk or act,
we need to CALM DOWN & WITHOUT THINKING FIRST OF EMOTION,
we think any consequences that we might encounter later,
if we make a decision of “this”, or “so”.
Then we choose and take a positive decision,
in accordance with the truth of the Word of God,
that bring peace for our own or someone else, so that our decisions will not be used by the devil to make us become followers.
1 Corinthians 10:31-32 (New King James Version)
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God
Philippians 2 :1-4 (New King James Version)
Unity Through Humility
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
1 John 3:16 (New King James Version)
The Outworking of Love
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.
And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Philippians 4:8 (New King James Version)
Meditate on These Things
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
1 Peter 5:8-9 (New King James Version)
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
2 Corinthians 2:11 (New King James Version)
lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
