This week’s Bible subject: Mind

The following Bible verse opens up this message and provides the central idea, or Golden Text. The Golden Text is followed by supporting Bible verses called the Responsive Reading (also below). In the Sunday service, participants join in reading the Responsive Reading together out loud.

Golden Text | Philippians 2:5
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Responsive Reading | Isaiah 14:24; 45:5, 6; 55:6, 7 (to :), 8–12 (to :)
The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace:
