A New Way of Thinking

  1. 1. Introduction • As children of God we need to be sure and develop a new way of thinking. Rom. 12:1-3 • We must not think like the foolish ways that the heathen or worldly think... Rom. 1:18-25 • But develop an entirely new way of thinking which coherently listens to and obeys the perfect word of God! 2 Timothy 3:16-17
  2. 2. We Consider the Mercies of God • Where we would be without God’s mercies! – No help… Hebrews 4:16 – No salvation… Titus 3:5 • Thus, we should freely present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God. Mt. 4:10 – We should present our lives to God as a holy and acceptable offering… Eph. 6:5-6 – It is our logical worship. 1 Tim. 4:15 – Our lives are to be centered on worship and remembering God’s mercy! 1 Peter 2:5, 10
  3. 3. Be Not Conformed to This World! Rom. 12:2; 1 Jn. 2:15-17 • We must live in this world without being conformed to the sinful ways of the world. John 17:14-17 • The ways of the world are only temporal and unrighteous. 2 Cor. 4:18; 1 Jn. 2:17; Titus 2:11-12 • Be not conformed to the devil’s ways. John 8:44-48; Ephesians 2:1-3
  4. 4. Be Transformed By Renewing Your Mind! • Set your mind to walk according to the spirit and not after the things of the flesh. Rom. 8:1; Gal. 5:16-ff • Our thinking must be directed to find out and obey Christ’s word. Eph. 5:10; 6:6 • You are to be renewed in the spirit of your mind. Eph. 4:21-24 – We need to renew our inward man (our spirit) every day! 2 Cor. 4:16
  5. 5. This New Way of Thinking Helps To Daily Create a New You! • This is why we must deny our self and take up our cross daily to follow Christ. Lk. 9:23 – In doing this we will be able to find out and do the good, acceptable and perfect will of God! • Decide to come to and follow Jesus today! – Hear… Rom. 10:17 – Believe… Mark 16:16 – Repent… Acts 2:38 – Confess… Acts 8:37 – Be Baptized into Christ… Rom. 6:3-6
