Word for Today:  July 2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of our mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:2

We should get God’s Word literally built into our mind.  We need to discipline and control our mind to think like the Word.  We can make up our mind.  We have control over our mind.  We can make it agree or disagree with the Word.

Most of us are more influenced by the situations going on around us than we are influenced by what the Word says.  This is the result of thinking with an unrenewed mind.  Paul tells us to renew our mind.

How do we renew our mind?  We renew our mind by filling it with the Word and emptying it of the world.  We renew our mind by becoming “spiritually minded” instead of being “carnally minded.”

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Rom 8:6

The truth is, most of us need a good brain washing.  The Apostle Paul tells us that Jesus loves the Church and gave Himself for it that He might set it apart and cleanse it by the “washing of water by the Word…”

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word…  Eph 5:26

It is the Word that is the washing and cleansing agent.

The Word is the way to get our minds renewed so that we can think right.  Wrong thinking always gets us in trouble.  Carnal thinking or natural thinking leads to death but when we have our mind renewed by the washing of water by the Word, we are enabled to think right.  And right thinking is Word Thinking.

When we are spiritually minded and think in line with the Word of God, the world and the world system think we are unbalanced.  Unlearned.  Out of touch with reality.  Living in fantasy.  Foolish. And in some cases crazy.  The Word is so far above the world in Truth that when we live our lives by the Word, the world just can’t understand us.

A renewed mind believes what the Word says in spite of what natural reasoning says.  A spiritual mind is submerged in life and peace.

… To be spiritually minded is life and peace.   Rom 8:6
