What we really believe drives our decisions.
Renew your mind:
God is always at work to change what we believe so our decisions will be something He can bless. It’s called renewing our mind — from our own thinking and the way we were raised to God’s thinking and what He says. When we make Him Lord of our life, we are submitting our life, our will to Him, to His ways. So, when we do that everything, every thought, everything we have ever believed is on the table to change. Whatever does not line up with the word of God is subject to change, or should be.
Consider your ways:
Today too many come to Christ and do not want to change. They will hang on to belief systems that are wrong, even against the word of God; for example, how could any true believer vote for anyone who believes killing babies is OK? I know some will say there are other issues. The problem with that reasoning is that usually it is a way to make excuses about why we refuse to change our mind, our thinking in an area. We want to hang on to something that is ungodly.
If we get the abortion thing wrong, if we believe that there is any greater issue than the right for a baby, a human to have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, then maybe, just maybe we ought to take a moment and ask ourselves, What could be more important than life? If we don’t get that, if that is not a starting place, especially in our country today, then I think we should pray, read the word, and ask God to help us renew our thinking.
It is hard work at times — that we know. But it is work we must all do.
Just a thought,
