Have you ever changed your mind about something, not just vegetables, athletes, or sports teams but something really important? Much of our struggle, as Christians, is to do that very thing, change our minds! As Christians we are not trying to get away with anything, we are trying to get away from something, sin and its selfish thinking. In fact, we are changing our thinking, changing our mind, from a mind set on the flesh and its desires to a mind set on the Spirit. Because we know that the mind of sinful man, set on the flesh, is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace (Romans 8:6), and the world and its desires are passing away, because they are based on the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the boasting of what we have and do. These things all pass away but the man who does the will of God lives forever! (1 John 2:15-17)
