Merry Christmas - Get His Attitude

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then agree wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

Though He was God
He did not think of equality with God
As something to cling to
Instead, He gave up His divine privileges
He took the humble position of a slave
And was born as a human being
When He appeared in human form
He humbled Himself in obedience to God
And died a criminal’s death on a cross

Therefore, God elevated Him to the place of highest honor
And gave Him the name above all other names
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow
In heaven and on earth and under the earth
And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
To the glory of God the Father.

Merry Christmas Everyone
Prospero año y Felicidad
