Philippians 2:1-2 ” If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with 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 purpose.”

In other words…if you have the love of Christ within you, demonstrate it!  Paul calls us here to be like-minded…the Greek word for this meaning the activity represented involving the will, the affections, and the conscience.  This unity involves coming together as a whole in decision-making, with morally right passions, and motives.  For being like-minded is thinking the same thing for the good of all, not just a few.  Yes, being like-minded takes work on the part of everyone.  It calls us to be peacemakers, bridge-builders, and servants to all – for His sake and for His glory.
