To Change Your Life

To change your life requires a renewed mind. The Bible calls it repentance. That is a true change of mind that changes your life by the grace of God. Only the Spirit of God can renew your mind. The Bible calls that conversion. The Holy Spirit is able to transform your mind. "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2). Call on the Lord, asking Him to renew your mind.

The renewed mind understands the gospel of Jesus Christ. It understands the will of God. The renewed mind understands that prayer is conversation with God. A transformed mind refuses to be conformed to the world of unbelief. "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 2:5).

Pray the Word: God, I don't want to be conformed to this world. Transform me by renewing my mind, through the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Do the Word: Feed your mind upon the word of God. The Bible is more than old stories of people who lived long ago. God speaks to you now through the Bible. Your mind is renewed. The Holy Spirit, who inspired the authors of the Bible, renews your mind through the message of the Bible.
