“And we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
What we believe matters. What we believe absolutely matters. What we believe absolutely matters because our beliefs impact our behavior.
A lie believed as truth impacts our lives as if it were true.
Be mindful what you think. The thoughts we allow ourselves to think shapes our reality, and as a result it shapes our future.
As we think, so we become.
We either take control of our thoughts or our thoughts will take control of our lives. The choice is our’s.
The Apostle Paul gives us good counsel. He tells us to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. We do not allow thoughts to run its course. We take each thought and make it captive to the authority of Christ.
The standard which determines what is true and what is false is the standard of God’s revealed truth in his word. God’s word is the basis by which Christians regard as true and false.
What we believe matters. What we believe absolutely matters. What we believe absolutely matters because our beliefs shape our lives.
