Romans 12.1-2


Our thinking processes and the spiritual beliefs attached to them need to be challenged, changed and transformed.

 

1. Assess Our Thoughts

We need to do a walk-through assessment of our thought lives today.

If you want a deeper spiritual life, you must be serious about ridding yourself of these dangerous, destructive patterns.

 

2. Clean Up Our Thoughts

Our toxic and destructive thoughts can have an invasive power in our minds.

Hebrews 12.14-15

Our evil thought patterns have two main sources:

  • Satan – James 4.7; 1 Peter 5.8-9

  • Our flesh – Ephesians 1.1-5

 

3. Guard Our Thoughts
Our thought life, though intangible, needs to be guarded and protected.

Proverbs 4.23

2 Corinthians 10.3-5

Welcome the Holy Spirit daily.

Assert your identity and take action!

Colossians 3.5-14

 

4. Nurture Our Thoughts

Let your primary resource for spiritual nurturing be reading and studying the Bible itself.

  • Hebrews 4.12

  • 2 Timothy 3.16 (NLT)

  • Psalm 119.105

Take advantage of secondary resources.

RUN to Jesus!

 

We don’t just need new thoughts; we need transformed and renewed minds.

1 John 1.9
