Think back to Craig’s message. What sticks out?
Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
Romans 8:5-6 NLT
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Romans 12:2 NLT
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NIV
… We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5 NLT
Heavenly Father, we have all kinds of thoughts that we need to take captive. We need Your help to renew our minds. Will You give us the discipline to find and regularly declare Your truths for our lives? Amen.
