Center Your Mind on Them.

 

Finally,believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. Philippians 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us take a test okay?

Where do you spend more time: A watching trash on the TV or B watching Christian movies on the internet?

Listening to that rubbish they call music on the radio or listening to and singing along with Christian joyful praise music on the radio?

Which do you spend more time doing: serving self :playing sports, going shopping, or any other activity(there is nothing wrong with these activities unless they are thieves which rob time away from serving Christ) or serving Christ?

Do not sit there and shake your head in agreement and then do nothing about it, make a concerted effort to change your habits.

Of course it is a necessary requirement to go to a make over artist. And, as we all know, The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist. Ask Him for direction in your life to change your habits and then obey His guidance.

This takes time. You are not only be molded into a new creation but you also have to have the filth of the world purged from your mind and from your spirit.

Do not just think about making changes in your life, pray to Jehovah on how to make those changes and then do it. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for sanctifying me with Your word in every aspect of my life. Thank You Holy Spirit for grace in assisting me to conquer the destructive mentality in me so that I may continue to grow into the cherished child my Beloved Father in Heaven desires me to be. I give all glory unto You in the name of He who is the best remodeler of the soul Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The New is Here!

WORK IN PROGRESS

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version

We see on TV all the time: the new and improved!! Which I do not believe for a minute and it is my personal opinion it is just a gimmick.

When we welcome Christ into our lives it is the real thing.

When we accept Christ into our lives we the Holy Spirit begins a transformation in us.

It is like the caterpillar going into the cocoon to come out a beautiful butterfly. Now when the caterpillar is in the cocoon you can bet it is going through many struggles in its transformation.

 

So too it is with us.

Just because we have accepted Christ does not mean an instant change. It slowly takes place and the wonderful and amazing thing is, is that the transformation lasts until we either go to the other side or until Christ comes to take us to our Heavenly home.

Now do not be surprised if what you once enjoyed you not have no interest in and in many instances will find repugnant.

Do not be surprised when those around you do not understand the change and in many cases mock you and distance themselves from you. They are in your old materialistic world, but now you are in Christs spiritual world.

He has been transforming me for over twenty years and I am still a work in progress.

Yes it has cost me in many relationships that I was close with but that has been replaced by a loving bond with fellow members of Christs family that is so much deeper and rewarding than those left behind.

 

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Christ Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) for blessing me with the most truly awesome and life fulfilling relationship and close bond with You my most amazing friend. It is such a privilege to know that I am THEOPHILUS= friend of God I exalt You in Your sweet loving name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
