Time to renew the spirit of your mind

Be renewed in the in the spirit of your mind. Ephesians 4:23.

The Aged Apostle Paul wrote these words to the Church in Ephesus 6 years after he spoke about, the revelation of the renewing of the mind. And do not be conformed to this world,but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God, in Romans 12:2.let the hs

The word “renew” means “to renovate” or indicate a restoration to freshness or to an original state. It intimates the potential of redemption’s power to reinstate features of God’s original intention for humanity and a recovery of many potentialities of the human mind and soul as designed before the fall.

The “mind” consistists of the intellect or understanding, but also includes all that is described in the word “mind-set,” that is, the feelings and the will.

Being “transformed” by the renewal of the mind indicates a literal “Change in the form or formulas of thought or being,” This describes redemption’s provision of power to instill godliness in us—a power that transforms:

  1. Our thoughts, which lead to formulating
  2. Our purposes, which proceed to dictate our actions, and thus,
  3. Our actions become character-determing habits shaping the life and setting the course for the future.

The path to godly living is not complicated, nor energized by the flesh, but it does call the believer to willing, submission to the Father’s provision and ways.

    This is the main topic for 2015 at one of the two churches I attend. It is, of course, miraculous what the Holy Spirit can do. My mind likes to veer off course some of the time but I must say that I have seen dramatic changes over the past 20 years. I can only say that the grace of God has been active in my mind and the transformation has been quite amazing. I claim no credit for this but am thankful that, again by the Grace of God, his Word is truth to my soul.

    God’s blessings…

    Yes, looking back it is amazing what the Holy Spirit can and does do for us. I can remember a time when there was a war going on in my mind meaning, i had so many thoughts coming at me and i could not hold a thought long enough to make a decision. That is not good for a mechanic who has to have order in his work.

    The renewing of the mind is very real. I for one am grateful for it.

    His mercies are new every morning.
