How did Jesus think? Like a servant without rights. He loved righteousness and hated wickedness (Hebrews 1:9) for His Father’s sake, and He chose to give up His rights and to become a servant that He might buy us for His Father at a price.

 

And now that we have been bought at a price and have become servants, too, we must think like Jesus. We are no longer our own, and we have no rights of our own outside of Him.

 

When your mind is truly transformed to think like this, you will experience what we call the death of temptation. Satan’s power of temptation lies in your supposed right to make decisions regarding your behavior. If you didn’t believe you had that right to choose what you look at, no tempting power could touch you.
