Roamns 8:1-17

January 29, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.”  v. 5-8 (NLT)

What do you find yourself thinking about?  I guess you could say it depends on where you are at the moment, and that would be a correct statement.  However, every moment is filled with a choice.  The choices we make in the moment will determine our actions and reveal what we are thinking.  Because of our sinful nature we are bent to think about sinful things over Spiritual things, but in order to be the person God has called us to be we have to change the way we think and begin to think about Spiritual things.

Today, when moments happen, stop and think about what you should do, how you should respond, what you should be thinking about.  Don’t miss the opportunity to allow the Spirit to lead you, convict you, encourage you, empower you, or use you.  Remember, our goal is to become more like Christ everyday, and today we have the opportunity to take our thoughts captive and turn them into something pleasing to God!
