Our thoughts and feelings take on certain patterns and tendencies that inevitably determine the kind of things we say and do. When we say or do something, we’re just letting out the thoughts and feelings that are on the inside.
People who do well at loving are simply the kind of people who have loving thoughts and loving feelings. Cranky people are simply people who tend to have bitter, resentment-producing thoughts and feelings.
Yet the apostle Paul makes this staggering statement, “But we have the mind of Christ.” Imagine what it would be like if your thoughts, feelings, desires, perceptions, and understandings were the same as if Jesus was in your place. That really can happen. And that’s what we’re talking about.
1 Corinthians 2:16
