Renewing Your Mind in Christ

Good Morning Ekklesia,

In today's world, our minds are constantly bombarded with thoughts, worries, and distractions. But as Christians, we are called to set our minds on things above, not on earthly uthings, as Colossians 3:2 reminds us.


Point 1: Overthinking - Many of us struggle with overthinking, allowing anxious thoughts to consume us. We dwell on the "what-ifs" and "could-have-beens," instead of trusting in God's plan. Overthinking robs us of peace and joy, keeping us stuck in fear and doubt. In this fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the chaos, but remember, overthinking leads to spiritual paralysis.


Point 2: Underthinking by being unconcerned - On the other hand, underthinking or living in unconcerning ways can also be detrimental. We become indifferent to the needs of others and the prompting of the Holy Spirit. In a world filled with injustice, poverty, and suffering, indifference is not an option for followers of Christ. We must guard against apathy and cultivate a heart of compassion.


Point 3: Renewed Thinking with the Mind of Christ - Let us embrace positive thinking with the mind of Christ. When we align our thoughts with God's truth, we experience the peace that surpasses all understanding. Renewed thinking doesn't mean denying reality or ignoring challenges; rather, it means viewing life's circumstances through the lens of faith. With the mind of Christ, we see possibilities where others see obstacles, and we find strength in His promises.


In today's ever-changing world, we need the wisdom and discernment that come from setting our minds on Christ. As technology advances and societal norms shift, we must anchor ourselves in the unchanging truth of God's Word. Whether facing global pandemics, economic uncertainty, or cultural upheaval, our faith remains steadfast in Christ. Let us be beacons of hope and agents of transformation, demonstrating the power of positive thinking rooted in Christ's love.


People of Ekklesia, as we navigate the challenges of life, may we remember Colossians 3:2: "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Let us cast off the burdens of overthinking and indifference, and embrace the abundant life Christ offers. With His mind, let us see the world through eyes of faith, bringing light into the darkness and hope to the hopeless. Amen.
