How to Renew Your Mind

How to Renew Your Mind

You have heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat,’ but maybe the more accurate saying would be, ‘you are what you think.’ This week we look at Jesus’ teaching about what’s going on inside our hearts and minds and how it influences our actions.

In Luke 6, Jesus declares that a good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart. In this, Jesus connects a person’s character with their thoughts and actions. Like the fruit trees planted around us, what we produce is generated from what is in our minds and hearts. This means that the things we expose ourselves to, and the way we walk with God, influence not only our daily walk but also our daily actions!

This idea can bring us great peace, but it can also challenge us. How do our anxious, angry, or cranky thoughts influence our actions? What does Paul mean when he writes that we have the mind of Christ? How do we make changes if we feel like we are in an unhealthy rut?

Imagine what it would be like if your thoughts, feelings, desires, perceptions, and understandings were the same as if Jesus were in your place. That really can happen.
