Our life and eternal destiny is determined by that which we have on our mind, that which we think about. If we allow our minds to be corrupted by the things of this world, by TV, the media and influences of the world around us then we will perish but if we fill our minds with Jesus Christ, we will LIVE.
Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God. If you sit in front of the TV all day and you absorb all the trash that they present to you, that is what you become, GARBAGE! Your mind is corrupted. If you listen to other people you become like them. Do you want to be like those people who you listen to?
If you listen to other people you become like them but if you listen to Jesus Christ you become like Him and you will LIVE. You need to have the MIND OF CHRIST and you only get the mind of Christ through a close relationship with Jesus Chris IN YOUR SPIRIT, His Spirit IN your spirit and you LISTENING to His Spirit, LISTENING to the WORD OF GOD implanted in your soul. But if you watch the TV and listen to other people you are diverted away from Jesus and you will perish.
We have to FILL our minds with Jesus Christ but first we have got to PURGE our minds of all filth, all worldliness and invite Jesus in.
We need to be continually fed by His SPIRIT, not by knowledge and reading and listening to other people. We need to LISTEN to the Holy Spirit and then our SOUL WILL LIVE. If we stop listening we will perish. We need to be fed and filled and nourished with the Spirit of God every day, all the time. If we absorb garbage that is what we become, GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT. We need to yearn and long for the Spirit of God every moment, to fill us and to direct us. We need to GO AFTER Him. We need to SEEK Him, all the time and let Him fill our minds, then He will determine our DESTINY.
What are we filling our minds with? The things of the world, or Jesus Christ? If we do not have the MIND OF CHRIST and keep on filling our minds with Jesus, LISTENING to Him, FOLLOWING, yearning and being receptive, going after the guidance of the Holy Spirit then we will perish. We need Jesus Christ! Jesus is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, there is no other. What are we feeding our soul and our mind with, garbage or Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
