Does the Spirit of God Reign in Your Mind?
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (Philippians 2:5 KJV)
Paul had just described the humble, pure, and wonderful love filled mind of Jesus Christ in the preceding verses. He was impressing the importance to the members of the Philippian Church of allowing Jesus Christ to permeate all the cracks, crevices, and recesses of their mind as well as dwell in their heart.
The man and woman of God puts on the mind of Jesus Christ at their salvation (Ephesians 6:17). His fortress of spiritual presence works to keep a mindset humble, peaceful, merciful, as well as offering a helmet of spiritual protection against the tricks and wiles of the devil that the man of God faces on a daily basis while sojourning in this world.
