Thought of the Day May 30, 2018 Put on the mind of Christ

By 9:57 AM

It is not enough to get rid of the root of sin; we must put on the mind of Christ. "Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you may judge what is God's will, what is good, pleasing and perfect" (Rom 12:2) We don't want to spend our whole energy on getting rid of sin. That could become depressive. While dealing with sin and its roots, we want to be positive. We are interested not only in uprooting sin, but being transformed in the likeness of Christ. If we are always dealing only with the mud of life, we will never begin to appreciate the beauty of life. Both are part of life, but what is the better focus? What makes us more the person we are meant to be? "I live now, not I, but Christ Jesus in me." This is our desire. We deal with sin so that we can more fully reflect the life of Christ in who we are.
