Can You Be Like-Minded?
Paul closes this section with the following words: “15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.” Paul had just exhorted the Philippians to press toward the goal of following Jesus, forgetting those things which are behind. Paul had a singular focus to move toward what God had planned and to forget about the things that he had to give up. The same Holy Spirit who equipped Paul to do this is able to equip you and me to do the same thing. I pray that you will seek what God has in front of you even if you have to leave behind some very important and valuable things. You won’t be disappointed in seeking the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. But what do you think that looks like in your life? What is God revealing to you about His plan for you?
