Setting Our Minds

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Colossians 3:2. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

How do we conquer our fleshy temptations? We set or fix our minds on Jesus/God. We talk with Him in our inner voice throughout our day. We look to Him for all our choices. We study and know what is recorded in our Manufacturer’s handbook, the Holy Bible. It is when we allow our minds to wander, looking at what others have or looking for a moment’s pleasure instead of pleasure throughout eternity that we give in and turn away (even if for a moment) from God. Satan is defeated so we can’t blame him. We are responsible for our choices. We will stand before God’s judgement seat. The only defense we will have will be if Jesus tells God we are one of His, washed in a His blood. Have you been washed?
