Think About This

You are listening to:Think About This

The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act. If you want to change the way you act or feel , start by changing the way you think.

We might say, “I need to love my spouse more,” but that isn’t necessarily going to work. You can’t will your way into a feeling. You must change the way you think about your spouse, about your kids, about the rest of your family. Once you think different you will begin to feel differently, which in turn will change the way you act. Paul wrote in Eph 4 that we must, “Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes”. The battle with sin, is the battle to deal with those defects in your life that you don’t like, and it starts in your thought processes. If you want to change anything in your behavior or anything in your emotions, you start with your thoughts and your attitude.

The renewal of your mind is related to the word “repentance.” Repentance is about more than changing your behavior. It is about changing your mind and learning to think differently. “Repent” simply means to make a mental U-turn. You turn from guilt to forgiveness. You turn from frustration to freedom, from darkness to light, from hatred and bitterness to love.

This Sunday we are going to consider on of the iconic passages in Philippians 4 in which Paul calls us to “think on these things”.

When we change our focus we begin to change the way you think about your relationships, the economy, the world, and your past, present, and future.
