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.
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.
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.
