With His Mind...


It's often hard for us to have the mind of Christ, but that's the big idea. We should think more like Him. Just as the old saying goes "What Would Jesus Do?" God's desire is for us to have Unity in the Body of Christ and that is hard for us to do when we don't put on the mind of Christ.

Scripture tells us that God is Love, and we know that Love hurts sometimes. Sometimes its not going to be what we want or in our best interest, and most of the time seems like its not apart of "our" plan, but God's plan.

As things happen that we don't like or agree with, or just doesn't go apart of our plan in life we become bitter from time to time, truth is that happens. But, what we have to remember is that we cannot spread doubt, or negativity among one another (the church, other believers, the community). In fact, out of everything in life and from a God that "IS LOVE" scripture says there are several things that God specifically "HATES" and this is one of them... You should no matter how you feel about something focus on building "Unity" in the Body.

No matter what you face, what decision come up. No matter how up set you are about something you have to understand that our main focus is worship, and bringing glory to our Heavenly father.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (NKJV)

16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

 

1 John 4:8 (NKJV)

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Philippians 2:3 (NKJV)

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

2 Corinthians 13:11 (NKJV)

11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

Ephesians 4:3 (NKJV)

endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
