People are celebrating today the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus took all our sins on the cross, suffered pain, and died. Thank God He rose again so we can live a new life through Him. Many of us as believers accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives. However, to live in the power of God and have victory over sin, we must roll away the stone of how we used to live. We must live the kingdom way to experience God’s promises for us in His word.
Romans 12:12: 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
It is an everyday thing renewing the mind to God’s kingdom. I mentioned on the previous blog to be sober and vigilant because the devil is like a roaring lion seeking a person to devour. Renewing the mind to the word of God every day is the way to be vigilant (watch & pray). Matthew 26:41: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 Easy Read Version: we tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.
Our mind is like a garden. We can’t accept the bait the devil brings to our minds that is contrary to the word of God. Immediately cast the thought down with the word of God. Do not let the ideas that are not of God linger. To take every thought captive means putting the thought under God’s control and not letting it control you. 1 Corinthians 2:16 says: We have the mind of Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Once you have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, you roll away the stone of a life of death and destruction. You are now resurrected to live in life and peace. When you fall short, confess, repent, and live under the grace; of the life, Jesus died for. Click the link and read the blog “The Inner Man Is New; Now Work On The Other Part Of You” Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:31 I die daily. It is a constant dying to the life of sin/flesh and living a life of God.
If you are not saved, you forfeit eternity with Jesus and are doomed to a life of damnation with the devil. Accept God now. Repent of your sins. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Believe in your heart that Christ was raised from the dead. You are now in the kingdom family. Continue to renew your mind to kingdom living. Ask God to help you in areas you fall short. Live the glorified life that Jesus died for. Let God’s kingdom come! His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
God’s glory is shown when we roll away the stone!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for making me a new creation through your Son Jesus’ crucifixion. I walk in the newness of life so that your glory is manifested in my life that draws others into the kingdom of God. I die daily to my sinful nature and renew my mind to the word of God. I take every thought that is not in line with God’s word and cast it down with the word of God. So help me, God, in areas where I have a challenge. I live the resurrected life and roll away the stone of my old life. Thanks be to God, who always causes me to triumph through Him. In Jesus’ name! Amen!
