Beloved brethren, I really want to appeal to you, to give attention to this particular verse of the Bible and thoughtfully examine yourself, with the admonitions.

This passage reveals three different Christian virtues that must characterise the lifestyle of a Bible believing believer, like you.

Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high-minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits.

See what the scriptures says again.

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. – Romans 12:16

Very very unfortunately, even believers that claimed to be sanctified, are very very guilty of the truth revealed in this passage.

See the three different Christian virtues.

1. Be of the same mind one toward another.

2. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.

3. Be not wise in your own conceits.

But then we give all glory and honor to Jesus Christ our Lord, who lived exemplary lifestyle during His earthly ministry.

He distinguished Himself on the there Christian virtues.

It was this gracious lifestyle that made God the Father, to exalt Him highly . See it.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

How do you in particular, fare in your Christian lifestyle, on these three virtues?

Beloved brethren, pause and sincerely examine yourself on these virtues one by one.

1. Be of the same mind one toward another. Meaning.

Be of the same mind one toward another. Having mutual good feelings one towards another. Be in harmony, peaceable with others. Live in harmony with each other.

2. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Meaning.

Instead of being ambitious, you should let yourself be drawn willingly to the lowlier spheres of usefulness to which you may be called.

Do not place yourself on a pedestal that you think, you can not relate or associate with some people, because of your position in the office or in the church.

James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 2:6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

Like our Lord Jesus Christ, see what apostle Paul said about himself.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. – Romans 12:16

3. Be not wise in your own conceits.

In addition you must never be wise in your own conceit.

Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight

But then be scripturally wise.

James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 3:14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

See this scripture again and make it your lifestyle, till Christ comes.

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. – Romans 12:16
