“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2).
There’s a battle going on in the world. It is fought not on battlefields, but through media, news networks, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok. The prize for which everyone is after is not more territory and lands, but the minds and hearts of people. There is a narrative that the educated, powerful, and the influencers of this world demand that others accept.
John Lilly is quoted as saying, “In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true.”
Please read that quote again. It is so important that we get our thinking right; that we protect the minds of Christians.
It is absolutely vital Christ-followers protect and guard our minds and our thoughts. What we believe absolutely matters. When we are not careful to guard our minds, we allow narratives that are contrary to the revealed truth of God to seep into our minds. And before we know it, Christ-followers have a difficult time discerning between the truth revealed to us in Scriptures from the truth that the world is feeding us.
Friends, our baseline is the revealed word of God. That is the truth by which all others are measured by. Protect your mind by staying close to God’s word on a daily basis.
