American Christians have had it easy for a very long time. It really hasn’t cost current generations anything to follow Christ. That’s a blessing, but it has sadly created a sense of apathy and entitlement in the church, causing Christians to always want the easiest, most convenient path. That kind of faith will never withstand the tests that are most certainly coming for the church! We must begin right now to put our own desires aside and make certain that we are rooted deeply in Christ, and that we are living wholly for His mission.
Renewing Your Mind
Being born again is about a new life with a new nature. It’s about dying to your old nature and living life with a new nature; the nature of Jesus Christ. Scripture describes the reality of this change, and it also tells us a key component to true transformation. It’s known as renewing the mind. It is through our mind that sin and the enemy are able to deceive us and lead us astray. What controls our mind will ultimately direct our path. Our mind must be renewed by the source of our new life, which is Jesus Christ. Listen as we teach the necessity of dying to our old nature and putting on our new nature by the renewing of our mind.
