Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus…

Philippians 2:3-5 NASB

For Jesus… the needs of others are always more important than His own needs…

…the spiritual man is the man open to the universe and under the influence of the Spirit. Hence growth in contemplation, a growth toward spirit, is a development toward cosmic consciousness so that the contemplative puts on the mind of the cosmic Christ and offers himself to the Father for the salvation of the human race.

–William Johnston, Introduction to The Cloud of Unknowing

Thus… He put Himself wholly in service to the Father… who alone knows hearts… and what each person most needs…

To be… Jesus-like… we must attain His same attitude… be like-minded…

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. …” –Jesus

John 15:12-14 ESV
