  Week 3 - STAY IN TOUCH  
 
  Day 2 : Staying In Touch With Your Mind - Thoughts  
 
 

Your thoughts influence your character, shape your attitudes, determine your behaviors, affect your spirituality, and even influence the immune system.

Sinful thoughts are often something we disciples struggle with. Sometimes you have no control as to what thoughts enter your minds. However God's Word's help us to recognize our thoughts for what they really are, and how to act (or not act) upon them. Letís look at few scriptures

2 Corinthians 10:5
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.

Romans 12:1-2
1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.


Paul's conviction was to make every thought captive to obey Christ. For many of us, the thoughts that continually run through our mind are more adversary than ally. Left unchecked, our ďthought lifeĒ can become our own worst enemy, poisoning us from within. Thatís why it is important for us to make every thought obedient to Christ.

How can you change your thinking??

As the scripture says itís by renewing your mind. It involves capturing your thoughts & setting it in the light of the scriptures & replacing your thoughts with the God's word.

As campus students itís important to filter what enters your mind. What you see, what you hear, what you read everything plays a major role in your thinking. That is the reason itís necessary to feed your mind with God's word .It starts from having a great bible study.

Challenge
1. Examine yourself to see what you are feeding your mind with?
2. What are some of the sources that you need to cut off in your life in a way to Guard your mind? Write it down & share with someone else.
