This week we enter into the third part of our series as we
continue to develop and become ‘the me I want to be’.
And as we do that, we realise more and more that we need to stay connected to God through His word if we are to guard and guide our thoughts and minds to be renewed through the power of the Holy Spirit.
This is why we need to understand the energising impact of Scripture. Last week, we focused on digging into God’s Word, and this week, we continue that journey as we seek to have the same mindset as Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5) in our relationships with one another.
When read about and focus on Christ, and what he has accomplished for us through His death on the cross and His glorious resurrection (which we will celebrate soon at
Easter), and stop focussing on our sin and evil (which are real and present – but which Jesus forgives) we will continue to become ‘the me I want to be’.
So in order for you to have a mind that is continually shaped by Scripture – I encourage you to make time, remove distractions and read or listen to God through
His Word which is for you.
Also consider joining a group where you can do this in the context of others as you share together, grow together and encourage each other to continue to live as the
person that Christ has made you to be.
In His service, Pastor Ben
