Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21, KJV
Guard Your Mind
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…” (Philippians 2:5, King James Version)
When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior it is critical that we get with like-minded believers, attend Bible study regularly, have individual study time, and grow our personal relationship with Jesus. Jesus was the only perfect and divine human being to ever walk the face of earth. He never sinned. Our goal must be to strive continually to be more and more like Jesus. We were born into sin; however, the goal is to stop practicing sin. The more we study and experience Jesus the more our lives should reflect him. Trouble starts in our minds with a single thought. Satan uses our minds to keep us off balance, confused, and suspicious.
Did you know we have the power, through Christ, to “cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ?” We must put every thought that doesn’t align with God’s word under our feet. Learn of Christ and let his words be our thoughts. Talk, walk, and live so that Christ is pleased with your life.
Father God in the name of Jesus, thank you for saving me. Lord, I want to be more like you. Help me to hide your word in my heart so I don’t sin against you, and I speak your word in all situations. Amen.
