Manna For Today: Wednesday, December 21, 2016
II Corinthians 10:5 – …casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Romans 12:2 – 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.
We live in a culture that constantly attempts to frame our thinking for its purposes. Our problem is that its purposes are seldom, if ever, God’s purposes. In fact, they stand in direct opposition to biblical truth. There simply is no way the believer can live in this culture and maintain a Christian perspective without returning to the principles that are found in these two scriptures.
They are as follows:
1. Daily put in check any thoughts that are in tension with God’s Word.
• Don’t allow these thoughts to be a part of your thought-life, replace them with the truth from God’s Word.
2. Practice mind-renewal daily by meditating on and memorizing scriptures.
• This can become a lifestyle for you. If it’s not, something is!
Peace and blessings
