The Mind Of Christ, Part II
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
The mind of man is a super computer able to access tons of information, process that information, make decisions and accomplish a multitude of tasks. Like our modern day computers the mind has to be programmed with information, either good or bad, and at times has to be de-fragged and cleansed of malware and virus's.
So it is with the mind of man, it has to be renewed with the washing of the word of God and cleansed by Holy Spirit's anointing. When we become born again, new creations in Christ, everything is made new, recreated in the image of God and our minds are cleansed by the blood of Jesus, ready to be programmed with that which is heavenly, or in other words, filled with the very thoughts of God.
Think about what is in your mind, take a mental inventory of your thought life and take a hard look at what you have allowed to dwell there. Is your mind filled with lust, sports, business, Internet, vain imaginations, and fantasies or are your thoughts about heavenly things: thoughts of peace, healing, deliverance, miracles, worship and prayerful consideration of others? Can we just say that in most cases we need a renewing of our minds!
But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:20-24
