Do you give your new mind what it needs to lead you? In this crazy world there are so many influences fighting for our attention. We must be careful what we let our minds feed on. Sex, violence, and godlessness is everywhere from billboards, to the radio, commercials, and music (even some ‘church music’). With so many influences in this world that we cannot control, we must learn to control any that we can.
We are commanded to set our minds on heavenly things, not on the sinful things of this world (Colossians 3:1-2). Why? To give our renewed minds a chance in this crazy world. The only way we can even begin to be led by God is to block out all the sin that is polluting our minds, and focus on Him. This might seem impossible, but real Christians have the Holy Spirit living inside of them. Who else do you need? If you are not getting clear direction from Jesus who do you think is to blame; you or Him?
