Can We Have the Mind of Christ?

What do you think?  If it is possible to have the mind of Christ, we would think like He thinks, talk like He talks and love like He loves, right?  Let's see what the Scriptures say about this subject.  I think we will be joyfully surprised.

Philippians 2:5  "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."  How do we do this?

Colossians 3:2  "Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth."

Romans 12:2  "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."

1 Peter 1:13  "Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."  This verse is asking us to take control of our thoughts and set them on things above.  Good counsel.

1 Corinthians 2:15,16  "He who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.  For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?  But we have the mind of Christ."  Wow! What a text!  Did you get that?  Read it again if you didn't.

2 Corinthians 5:17  "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all thing have  become new."  All things have become new!

Romans 13:14  "Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts."

Matthew 10:20  "For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you."

Ephesians 5:1  "Therefore me imitators of God as dear children."

2 Timothy 1:7  "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

All I can say about this study is, I need to read it every morning so my day will be filled with the mind of Christ.  A wonderful study for us to contemplate daily and it will bring about miracles in our life as far as having the mind of Christ, thinking His thoughts, talking as He talks, and loving like He loves.

According to these verses it is all possible if we ask for it and are sincere in our asking and putting away our worldly ways and give them to God to remove from our lives. This is a great challenge, are you interested in taking it?  I am.  Grandma Joan
