THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The Word of God, the Bible, is totally adequate to equip us to walk and work with God.
That the sharing of your faith may be most effective by the acknowledgement of every good thing which is in you from Christ Jesus.
Your testimony is as good and effective as your understanding of who you are, what you are and what you have in Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away. Look, all things have become new.
When you come into Christ, you become a brand new spirit but you have the same old mind and the same old body. Your spirit, however, has the capacity to work on your mind and body to produce the best from God.
I urge you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
You renew your mind with the Word of God. You will or decide to meditate on the Word of God. The Word of God gets into your mind and seeps into your spirit,the real you.Your mind is then renewed as your spirit is developed from one level to another and to maturity.
1 Corinthians 9:27
But I bring and keep my body under subjection, lest when preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
Disobedience to God’s instructions will disqualify you from receiving His promises. When your spirit is fed and strengthened with the Word, your mind is renewed and your will or resolve is made strong to discipline your body to do the will of God.
But He answered,” It is written,’ Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
The Word of God is to your spirit what natural food is to your body and mental learning is to your mind.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
May the very God of peace sanctify you completely. And I pray God that your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it.
Man is a spirit; he has a soul (which consists of the mind, the will and the emotion); he lives in a body. Your mind consists of your memory and your imagination. Your spirit is the real you; you possess a soul; your body is the house or tent you live in. God will preserve all three parts of your humanity blameless till the second coming of our Lord if you put your trust in Him.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.
Total peace is yours. In the name of Jesus.Amen!
You will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You because he trusts in You.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with gratitude, make your requests known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will protect your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Our hearts and minds need protection from incessant spiritual and mental assaults from the enemy in this world. God has promised to protect us and to answer all our prayers if we trust Him and come to Him with thanksgiving.
