The Mood of The Christ
Pick Up the Mood of The Christ In You!
Sometimes we feel down, discouraged, dejected, and slip into a negative frame of mind. At this juncture our Teacher the Holy Spirit would say, “Seek the mood of the Christ in you for He has been anointed with the oil of joy above His fellows!” (Ps.45:7).
7 Thou [Christ] lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Psalm 45:7 (KJV)
We then realise that with our negative attitude we have separated ourselves from the Christ in us. For, the Christ in us will not equate Himself with a negative attitude.
Solution: seek the Lord and in so doing find that in this case His mood to be one of joy, rejoicing, and a delight in the situation, ……. Wonderful!...... So, accepting Christ’s mood, He will return to the throne of our lives with rejoicing.
Beloved!......The only power we have is the “power of choice.” Exercise this power to realise a life of rest and peace in Him, see Heb.4:3!
3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. Hebrews 4:3 (KJV)

To this I would add this precious verse that expresses Jesus’ attitude in suffering the cross as He no doubt knew the blessed end for you and me being added to and included in the family of God.
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising [ignoring] the shame [of the cross], and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)
