Renew Our Thinking
“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.” Romans 12:2
We’ve seen this verse so many times that we could just kind of gloss over it. Renew our minds by reading the Word. Let’s take a minute and really consider what is being said.
Don’t be like the world, or secular humanist thinking. Carnality is another word for this. Being driven in our thought process by emotions, both good and bad. The world's view is very self-centered, "What’s in it for me?" Having a carnal mindset will not point you to truth or the will of God.
The renewed mind is that of the mind of Christ. 1Corinthians 2:16 “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.” Yes, we have the mind of Christ. We don’t need to work to get it, however we must recognize that His way of thinking is available to us. We can know what the will of The Father is. It doesn’t have to be a mystery to us.
As we continue to study His Word and seek His voice, we will obtain a new and different way of thinking. His way of thinking.
Occasionally Pastors Eric and Laura will write as the Lord leads them. There may be prophetic words or insights and revelation that have come to them. They share these with the intention that someone would be blessed and encouraged or admonished, something we all need once in a while.
