Display Chapter and Footnotes
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; [From the Word of the Lord within: "Grow up into the mind of Christ, from which all good thoughts proceed. Your thoughts are not my thoughts. At best your thoughts are a vain hiss. Those who follow their own brain will weep and mourn; there will be great pain. The mind is a terrible thing. We labor with a cursed mind for the carnal mind is neither subject to the law of God, nor can it be; that which is in the enmity must die. You must go on waiting, watching, and listening; then our hearts will be quiet by grace. Keep seeking peace. Great will be your peace if you continue faithfully. You will receive a new heart and mind."]

8 And after appearing in the likeness of man, he humbled himself further, and carried his obedience to death, even the death of the cross!
