Renew Your Mind

not by worldLet this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant and coming in the likeness of men.  Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.  Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,  that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:5-11)

The way we renew our mind is to allow God’s Spirit to conform us into God’s perfect will; not by conforming it to the ways of the world (Romans 12:2), but by having the same  mind Jesus have. If we study the ways of Jesus, we will see what lifestyle we need to copy. Jesus must be the only model for us to follow and not the one of the world around us. If we continue to live our lives by the standard that Jesus showed us, we will do everything that is pleasing to God, for this is one of the reasons He came to us: To save, show us how we should live and make His heart rejoice by the way we do so.
