Renew Your Mind
What you think determines what you do. “The mind is a terrible thing to waste.” No kidding. But mere knowledge isn’t going to remedy the situation. A lot of brilliant people have done some pretty stupid stuff. Our minds don’t need more information to get right. Our minds need transformation.
The only One who can enter our hearts and transform our minds is God. Fancy philosophers can’t do it. Self-help gurus can’t do it. Our hard work can’t do it. God must change our minds in every detail (don’t expect it to happen overnight–it takes time).
At the same time, you aren’t a passive part of the mind renewal process. First, you must invite Him to do His work. Then, once you have “learned the truth that is in Jesus…there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes” (Ephesians 4:21,23).
But let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Romans 12:2
