What a thought that we can have the Mind of Christ! As, I reflect over this truth, I am amazed! It seems impossible to think that human, sinful man could have the mind of Christ. This is what the Bible says,"But we have the mind of Christ."~ 1 Corinthians 2:16
"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart(intellect, emotions, will) and with all thy soul,(psuche: Greek word :"breath") and with all thy mind( deep thought , imagination)...This is possible as we exchange our life , for His...when He indwells us , we become a new creature. I remember the time when I came to the Lord...no one had to tell me to throw away my worldly music.The Holy Spirit led me ...what communion hath light with darkness? and what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?..Many things we do not have to ask whether it is right or wrong, because our eyes are now open.The Holy Spirit gives us this discernment. Once the Holy Spirit indwells us, we have dove's eyes...to see through . Mind Renewal will affect our whole thought, emotion(desires) and will(actions). But there are some steps required of us." ...present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service: 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."
A quiet heart is vital to know the mind of Christ. A Quiet heart is found only in a Person, Jesus Christ. Jesus is identical with His message. His Word is not just an offer on instruction, but an offer of He , Himself. The Word of God is absolutely the only way to know Him. As I read , the Holy Spirit teaches me. He shows me that the central person is Christ. Old and New testaments proclaim Jesus, God who came in human flesh. He is the express image of God. When I read the Word of God, the Holy Spirit reveals Him to me, from His supernatural book.He does a supernatural work in our lives when we are born again. He is a Supernatural God...this sets Him apart from all other false gods." Be still and know that I AM..." Psalm 46:10
A restless heart reveals what we are allowing our minds to think and dwell on.We need to put our trust in Him.We must be in constant communication with the Lord to cast down imaginations , and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ....this takes prayer and asking God to reveal to us the TRUTH...the Spirit-filled person will be able to determine whether the thought is coming from God or from the Enemy.Keep in mind that Jesus is our Shepherd and He leads gently, specifically and according to His Character. God is not going to lead us into something that is contrary to His Word, His Character or His Will. The Enemy drives us and is vague. Many times we have been taught incorrectly ,unscripturally and we have believed something that is not Truth.We ought to ask God to show us any area or belief that is Not from Him. May we worship Him in Spirit and in truth as He Truly IS not as we think He is....Let us keep our hearts with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life.(Proverbs 4:23)
We serve a Living Saviour! Have a Blessed Easter!
