1 Corinthians 2:16 (KJV) “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
The human brain has great potentials. In the words of Kent Hughes, “it is capable of giving and receiving the subtlest input – from imagining a universe in which time bends, to creating a polyphonic texture of a Bach fugue, or transmitting and receiving a message from God Himself – feats no computer will ever accomplish”.
Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the human mind has the capacity to reach its highest potential which is the possibility of possessing the mind of Christ. No computer will ever be able to think God’s thoughts, nor will any device ever be able to know the heart of God or do His works. But the human mind has this capacity. Indeed it was created for this, to have the mind of Christ.
This leads us to examine the great scandal of today’s church: Christians without Christian minds. In other words, Christians who do not think “Christianly”. One of the reasons many Christians today do not have Christian minds (or the mind of Christ) is that they don’t pay attention to what gets into their minds.
If you want to have a Christian mind, you must take control of your mind – what comes in and what goes out. Input determines output. You can never have a Christian mind if you spend all your leisure time in front of a television. To have a Christian mind, you must cultivate the habit of reading the scriptures regularly because you can only be profoundly influenced by what you know. If you are filled with God’s word, your life will be informed and directed by God.
Dear believer, go into today knowing that it is within your reach, and indeed your duty to have the mind of Christ.
Prayer: Ask for grace to make the word of God your focus this season.
