The Feast of the Passion Year B - Philippians 2:5-11
I cannot say equality with God is something I would let go of and I’m guessing you wouldn’t either. And if I found myself on other side of the Divine I would not choose the cross as my exit strategy. So God is not like me although God hopes in not being like me I might want to be more like God – “Let this mind be in you.” If God were a gambler we would clearly be the long shot but then again God is “all in” and has nothing to lose except his life – which in the end turns out to be the winning hand. So I guess “let this mind be in you” means be like God and risk everything on a losing hand.
