1st Corinthians 1-4
Have you ever been sucked into watching an infomercial? Have you ever purchased something from an infomercial? I have a few times. I believe that my purchases have involved some sort of exercise workout or nutritional program. All guaranteed me phenomenal results. The truth is I have not experienced all the effects that these infomercials promised me. Does that shock you?
Whatever it is, we humans like guarantees. We crave guarantees because we know that we’re likely to mess it up and we want something that can still be true even with a faulty operator.
Thank GOD that His faithfulness to me is not dependent on my ability to do right. Even on my best days I still fall short.
One of God’s promises to us is that we have the mind of Christ.
Not: We will have the mind of Christ – something that is promised for the future.
Not: We can have the mind of Christ – something that is contingent upon something else.
Not: We might have the mind of Christ – something that is uncertain or not yet determined to be true.
We have the mind of Christ…NOW! It’s guaranteed! Isn’t that amazing?!?!
What are the implications of this truth for you – YOU HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. It’s a done deal. How will this reality change the thoughts that you think, the words that you speak, the actions that you take?
Take a bit of time today and prayerfully consider the kind of response God might be asking of you.
