Renewing Your Mind

At my daughters graduation her youth Minister reminded us of the statistics of how many graduates put God behind while they launch out into the World. Our youth today are bombarded with information and it seems that all of this information is having an affect on their thinking and as a result – their actions. In our Daily Devotion Bible Studies we see Paul addressing this issue of the mind. It has been an exciting month as we have traveled through the Book of Romans and started the Book of 1st Corinthians. I love how Paul explains how we can have the Mind of Christ and we can know How to do the Lord’s Will. He defines the experience we have when we are Saved with the Holy Spirit indwelling the Body of the Believer. The Saved individual is now flesh and Spirit and Paul explains how we are to walk in Spirit as we mature in Christ. Our Bible is an important key in this process as Romans 12:2 states, And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Our youth today and all believers need to take an account of this battle that is going on in our minds and how we need to acknowledge the Spirit of God in us and renew our minds with daily Bible reading and Church attendance. How about you? Are you being Transformed by the renewing of your mind? Let us learn from the pages of the Bible that explains that we are to renew out minds with His Word to have the Mind of Christ – which will give us the power to present our Bodies as a living sacrifice – to see our lives continue to grow in the Lord even though the world is constantly trying to influence us to walk astray.
