The Mind of Christ – Obedience

This is the sixth and last in a series of articles written by Geneva administrators related to the theme for the year, “The Mind of Christ.”  Each article has expanded upon the qualities Dürerof the mind of Christ as indicated in Philippians 2:1-11:  selflessness, sacrifice, service, humility, patience and obedience.  This article on obedience was written by John DeSario, Logic School Headmaster

“The Mind of Christ” can be a difficult theme to wrap your mind around, but our passage of the year, Philippians 2:1-11, helps to narrow the scope of the topic. In this passage, “the Mind of Christ” is exemplified by Christ’s obedience to God the Father. As we seek to develop the mind of Christ, we too ought to exhibit obedience to God.

In order to obey God, we must first be able to articulate and identify the virtues consistent with His nature. In short, we need to know how to act. At Geneva, we place examples of truth, goodness, and beauty before students so that they are able to identify virtuous behavior.

Knowledge of how to act must be paired with right thinking or wisdom. Geneva teachers help students cultivate a deep understand of the world God has created, its order, and the causes of things. Knowledge of virtue without wisdom merely makes a person a smarter sinner. Wisdom leads a student to approve and imitate virtuous behavior. Often wisdom is caught more than it is taught. Students gain wisdom as they emulate the true, the good, and the beautiful. Imitation of virtue increases understanding and provides discipline for obedience.

When virtue and wisdom are paired together, the result is obedience to God. The proof of such obedience is a love for others that rivals our love of self. Join me in the life-long prayer for such obedience in your life.
