“Our conduct and conversation tells the kind of mind that we have”
In our last series we looked at THE RENEWED MIND, where we discussed that a renewed mind is always after God and after righteousness, we also looked at how to renew our minds with the word of God. We will continue this series by looking at
- THE MIND OF CHRIST
The mind of Christ is the mind that we need to have and walk in, our lives as teenagers will be better when we know and walk in the mind of Christ. Paul speaking he said we have the mind of Christ
1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.
Scriptures says we have the mind of Christ, so we have the mind of Christ. It tells we already have it in us as children of God. You need to see this in The Living Bible translation
How could he? For certainly he has never been one to know the Lord’s thoughts, or to discuss them with him, or to move the hands of God by prayer. But, strange as it seems, WE CHRISTIANS ACTUALLY DO HAVE WITHIN US A PORTION OF THE VERY THOUGHTS AND MIND OF CHRIST.
It says we Christians actually do have the very mind and thoughts of Christ, now we must understand that the indication that make us to know that we have the mind of Christ is because God reveals His mind to us and we know His thoughts and we need to act His thought.
John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I HAVE CALLED YOU FRIENDS; FOR ALL THINGS THAT I HAVE HEARD OF MY FATHER I HAVE MADE KNOWN UNTO YOU.
We understand the thoughts of God, the mind of Christ is operational within us, we hear clearly what Jesus says by His Spirit. It is the Spirit of God that reveals the mind of God to us, Jesus said He will take of Him and show it to us and we have the Spirit of God indwell us to communicate God’s mind to us.
John 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that HE SHALL TAKE OF MINE, AND SHALL SHEW IT UNTO YOU.
So very briefly lets see the benefits of the mind of Christ
- The mind of Christ will make us love one another
We need to understand that this is what identifies us as believers in Christ Jesus, this mind of Christ will make us be of one mind and love one another and that’s what tells that we follow Jesus.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
The mind of Christ will be make us love one another because what you have and what I have is the same mind of Christ, our minds are united in one because that’s what we both have as believers and then we interact base on the mind of Christ.
- The mind of Christ will make us speak the same thing
When we know that we have the mind of Christ we will all speak the same thing, even when it looks different we will discern that we are saying the same thing, there’s a way people of the same country speaks the same thing and you’ll understand this people are from the same country, so it is with the mind of Christ that we have as believers, the thoughts of God that we have is not different it is the same mind of Christ. The mind of Christ make us to judge things the same way because of that mind of Christ
1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all SPEAK THE SAME THING, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the SAME MIND AND IN THE SAME JUDGMENT.
The mind of Christ makes us to see how rich our lives is, it tells us how rich and productive we are as a teenagers, so from today begin to walk in the mind of Christ even with others that don’t have it because they are not born again. The next series we will talk about ONE SPIRIT WITH THE LORD.
