“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus”
Set in the middle of some powerful teaching about both the disposition of a Christian and the compassion a Christian is to exhibit toward his fellows, Paul here uses Jesus as an example of both.
Even though Jesus had a lofty position as a part of the Godhead, He had no problem in being a servant and even in taking on the form of humanity and suffering the agony of a painful death for the eternal benefit of mankind. Arrogance or a feeling of superiority had no part in the disposition of Jesus.
As disciples united in Jesus Christ, we are to have the same mind—to exhibit the same kind of attitude—that He did: we are to show humility in our dealings with one another and we are to have genuine concern for the feelings and welfare of our fellows.
