SUMMER SERIES: WEEK 4- CHANGING MINDSETS

“Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2 (NLT)


QUESTION: WHY MUST I MANAGE MY MIND??


A. BECAUSE MY THOUGHTS CONTROL MY LIFE

“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” Proverbs 4:23 (TEV)


B. BECAUSE THERE’S A BATTLE FOR MY MIND

“I love to do God's will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there’s something else deep within me that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin within me. In my mind I want to be God's servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin.” Romans 7:22-23 (LB)


C. BECAUSE IT’S THE KEY TO PEACE AND HAPPINESS

“If your sinful nature controls your mind, there is death. But if the HolySpirit controls your mind, there is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 (NLT)


3 DAILY CHOICES FOR A HEALTHY MIND


1. I MUST FEED MY MIND WITH TRUTH

“People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every WORD OF GOD." Matthew 4:4 (NLT)


WHEN? ALL THE TIME!

“I rise early...to cry out for help and to put my hope in your words.” Psalm 119:147 (NLT)

“Lord, how I love your Word. I think about it all day long.” Psalms 119:97

“Even in the darkest of night, your teachings fill my mind.” Psalms 16:7 (CEV)


2. I MUST FREE MY MIND FROM DESTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS

“Those who are dominated by their sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.” Romans 8:5 (NLT)

“Though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. …and we TAKE CAPTIVE EVERY THOUGHT to make it OBEDIENT to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5


HOW TEMPTATION WORKS

“Temptation comes from the lure of OUR OWN evil desires. These evil desires lead to evil actions, and then the evil actions lead to death.” James 1:14-15 (NLT)

  • Step 1: Desire

  • Step 2: Doubt “Did God really say...?”

  • Step 3: Deception – Believing a lie of Satan

  • Step 4: Disobedience & Defeat

“I have made up my mind to obey your laws forever, no matter what.” Psalm 119:112 (CEV)


3. I MUST FOCUS MY MIND ON THE RIGHT THINGS


A. THINK ABOUT JESUS

“Keep your mind on Jesus Christ...” 2 Timothy 2:8 (CEV)

“Think about Jesus' example. He held on while wicked people were doing evil things to him. So do not get tired and stop trying.” Hebrews 12:3 (NCV)


B. THINK ABOUT OTHERS

“Don't just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.” Philippians 2:4 (LB)

“Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do deeds.” Hebrews 10:24 (NCV)


C. THINK ABOUT ETERNITY

“Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth.” Colossians 3:2 (NLT)
