RE-PROGRAMMING THE MIND – PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12: 2 (KJV)
A spiritually dead person is the man who has not received the life of Christ. We receive the life of Christ when we believed the gospel of Christ. Faith in the resurrection of Christ is life. This life is instantaneous, complete and full at the moment we hear and believe the gospel. We don’t grow in Christ to receive more or better life. We don’t try to maintain this life. It is received once, it comes in its fullness and it is incorruptible.
However, in order to live well and enjoy the blessings of this life, one must align his thinking or reasoning pattern to the realities of the life in Christ. This is what is called renewing or reprogramming of the mind. The renewing of the mind is not instantaneous but progressive. We must daily get our mind renew.
The renewing of the mind is done by teaching or through knowledge. As you are exposed to the realities of who you have become in Christ, what you have in Christ and what Christ can do through you, your thinking pattern becomes fashioned in those realities and it then becomes your life style. A person with unrenewed mind though born again lives like an unbeliever in conduct.
I am daily getting my mind renewed so as to live a life consistent with who I have become in Christ.
