PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST

 

1 Cor 2:13-16 NKJV

These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

 

Since I was a child, I have prayed and asked the Lord to have the mind of Christ.  I thought that it was a gift that He would give me.  And it is true, every part of life in God, is His gift given to us, because we canít live the Christian life without His daily help.  I do believe that part of the reason I have heard His still small voice speak His thoughts so much is due to the repetition of that prayer since childhood.

 

However, we are also given stewardship over our own minds.  If we really understood this, we would take much stronger action in regards to our thinking. 

 

Prov 23:7  NKJV

For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he...

 

2 Cor 10:5-6 NKJV

...bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ...

The Lord gave me the following rhema, telling me that the mind of Christ is something we PUT ON.  That requires action on our part. 
 


 

PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST 


PIX 12/24/07: I saw a couple of sunhat visors that I had put away in my hair accessories drawer.

HEARD: Road map. Put ON the mind of Christ. A gift, I want you to have it. First you receive. Say thank you. Youíre welcome. Now then, put it on. Hat.

 

Rom 13:11-14 NKJV
And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

 

HEARD: Put on the mind of Christ, just like you saw. Itís a choice beloved. Take a minute.  Your future is Mine.

PIX: I saw a whole tray of fudge brownies!

HEARD: Is it flesh or is it Spirit? This or that?
 

PIX: I saw a doggie come screeching to a halt, but then started passionately running after something again.

WORD TO PONDER: PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST JESUS
I have given you safe boundaries to follow My Word and to protect your mind from carnality.  Always test each Word with scripture.  Always gird your mind with My own parameters.  I will re-establish you to be settled and secure so that you may once again increase your territory in a safe and balanced fashion.

Beloved one, forsake the temptations to think carnally.  Maturity comes to those who put ON the mind of Christ.  Just like you put on a hat, simply put on a spiritual hat when you hear My Word.  When you put on My mind, you will be strengthened and fully confirmed.  Each and every confirmation shall increase your passion to run the race once again with renewed vigor and expectation.

Gal 3:26-27 NKJV
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Eph 4:22-24 NKJV
... that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Col 3:10 NKJV
...put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him...
